First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea. Each week, participants share a paragraph (or two) from a book they are currently reading or are planning to read soon.
Today I’m going share the first bit of Melanie Benjamin’s newest book. The Girls in the Picture is scheduled to be released on January 16th, 2018. I loved The Swans of Fifth Avenue and, so far, I’m loving this book as much, if not more.
First Chapter, First Paragraph
“Lately, the line between real life and movies has begun to blur.
There are times when I’m pounced upon by a memory – the cracked rearview mirror of the first car I ever owned, say, or the ghostly dance of a curtain in front of an open window when I was small and impressionable and plastered in bed with a fever. Or the teasing curve of a man’s lips, a man whose kiss I must have known at some time in my life. And the longer I dwell on the memory, the less certain I am of its origin. Is the memory really mine?
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
My first impression was very positive. I’ve read a few chapters. So far, so good!
