First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a meme hosted by bibliophilebythesea, sharing the first paragraph of our current or soon to be reads.
I mentioned before my daughter ended up getting an Uppercase box for Christmas and this was the first book offering they gave us. It’s one my friends have said was good, so I was interested in reading it. Plus, the cover is really gorgeous, this official picture doesn’t do it justice. The pages inside are also adorned nicely. It’s just a really nice book overall.
Here’s the first three paragraphs (because the first and last ones are literally a sentence).
I offered my hand to the fire.
Sparks leap from the hearth and settled onto my fingers, heat drawn to heat, and glittered like molten gems against my skin. With my free hand, I pulled a bucket of melting snow closer and edged forward on my knees, ready to douse myself if the sparks flared into something much larger.
Which is exactly what I intended.
Based on that, would you read or pass?
