Book Beginnings: ttfn


Every Friday Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. What you do is share the opening line(s) of the book you are currently reading and briefly discuss what you think about the opening line or the book or whatever else inspires you. Make sure to share your entry with Rose City Reader and in my comments below.

Here's my book beginning:




"Saturday, November 20, 4:45 pm E.S.T.
SnowAngel:        hey there, zoe-cakes. r we studs or what?"

Yep, it's the sequel to ttyl, the second book in Lauren Myracle's instant messaging trilogy. Same characters, only a year later and with some new problems. I'm over halfway through this, and I do like Myracle's style, though some of the conflicts are kind of silly. Believable, yes, but still silly.

  1. Reading this must be quite difficult to get into! I would probably need a dictionary of txt-language, because I can't even understand some of my friends' texts! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I have the same problem as Juli. I think I would need a translator. I never have texted. Happy reading!

  3. My children roll their eyes at my texting, which is slow, properly spelled and grammatically correct. This book might just drive me batty!

  4. I have heard of ttyl before and need to remember to read it. I like email or texting books. I didn't know there was a sequel.

  5. I think its a little odd that a teenage girl would refer to herself and her friend as 'studs' haha.

  9. There are some great teen books out there and it's nice to see folk are reading something other than paranormal! The txt language has always put me off these books, so well done for sticking it out.
