Four Fun Friday memes - join us?
Fridays are about sharing the first sentence(s) of a current book I'm reading and a snippet from page 56 or 56% on e-reader from the same book. Fun, right? And I'm joining the BBH (Blogger Hop) to answer this week's prompt. As always, everyone is welcome - hope to see you there and sharing first sentences.......
Today's Book is:
The World We Make #2 by N.K. Jemisin
Published Nove 2022; 448 pages
First Sentence(s): "Prologue: Call me Neek. No, I'm not hunting no fucking whale."
At page 56: "He trails off on an up-note, frowning a little as his gaze grows distant. Then Manny hears it, too. New York is never quiet, but in the near distance there is a sudden chorus of car horns. That's nothing; since moving to the city Manny's heard entire four-movement symphonies whenever someone blocks an intersection. But they're all listening now, attention caught, because if Neek's noticed it, then it's important. Manny begins to hear voices, a lot of them, rising louder than the horns."
Today's Question: What was the first book you read this year?
I started Demon Copperhead at the end of December, so it was the first book I finished in 2023.

Hope you'll join in one or all of these fun memes and take a minute to visit the other participants. I'm surprised how many times a first sentence can send me looking for a book.
