First Words

This year's project: Record the first words of every book I read.

Case Histories: A Novel (Kate Atkinson)

How lucky were they? A heat wave in the middle of the school holidays, exactly where it belonged.

Cordelia's Honor (Lois McMaster Bujold)

A sea of mist drifted through the cloud forest: soft, grey, luminescent.

One Good Hustle (Billie Livingston)

There is probably at least one good con for a situation like this, one decent, well-executed hustle that would turn the whole scene to my advantage.

Sutton (J.R. Moehringer)

He's writing when they come for him.
