The Weight of Blood, by Laura McHugh: a suspense novel set in the Ozark Mountains. I haven't actually started this one yet, but it's in my "must read soon" stack. Here's the first sentence:
That Cheri Stoddard was found at all was the thing that set people on edge, even more so than the condition of her body.
Initial Thoughts: Well, that opening got my attention. Perhaps a little grisly, but I'm definitely intrigued. Would you go on reading?
Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays. As she says, the idea is to post the first sentence (or so) of the book you're currently reading, along with any first impressions or thoughts you have about the book, the author, etc. It's a wonderful way of adding new books to your must-read list, and a chance to connect with other readers and bloggers.
