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:
"I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air. My muscles are clenched tight against the cold. If a pack of wild dogs were to appear at this moment, the odds of scaling a tree before they attacked are not in my favor."
-Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins
Having finally finished A Clash of Kings last night, I'm now going to continue The Hunger Games series. This opening makes it sound like Katniss is in a dangerous position, except the drinking tea part. Now to see what happens next.
