Friday Firsts Book Meme

Friday Firsts is a new book blog meme creaded by Well Read Reviews. I love her blog and her tweets.

The first line can make or break a reader’s interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy. Head on over to Well Read Reviews to join in the fun!

My Friday Firsts: Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child

"Suicide bombers are easy to spot."

I read the first few pages on Random House's website through their newsletter and I was hooked. The guy is sitting on the 6 subway train, early morning New York city and thinks he spots a suicide bomber. Maybe not the first sentence but the first chapter definitely drew me into the story.


  1. I think that first sentence would definitely have me reading more. I'd want to know what is going to happen next!

  2. That is a good first sentence.

    Have you read any of the books in that series by Lee Child?

  3. Woah, that is a very straight forward comment for an opening line!
