Friday Firsts (Oct. 2)


Friday_Firsts 
This month, Wendy provided a list of first lines collated by Nancy Pearl, author of the Book Lust series.
Of the eight books on the list, I haven’t read any – in fact I didn’t even recognise them (so you’re two up on me, Wendy). The one I liked best, however, was from Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle:
“I write this sitting in the kitchen sink.”
How can that not draw you in? What are you doing in the kitchen sink? And why on earth would you choose this location to write in? Why??
At this point I’m not adding any to my tbr pile because it’s already toppling and I’m in fear of my life as is.

I Capture the Castle was such a good book. A bit angering maybe but good! Great quote!
