Express Yourself! Favorite Books

This weeks "Express Yourself" Challenge is to write the 1st liners of  books we really enjoy. As a book lover (I better be as I am claiming for myself the label "Author") , and a part of a family of book lovers, it was not so easy to choose which ones I was going to post about. I did narrow it down a little - just to keep this list from going out of hand.

Here we go!

In the first few minutes of Catherine Talbert's escape, she did her very best to be as quiet as possible. She thought he was gone, but she wasn't at all certain of that, and in her terror she just wanted to run.

Okay, that is two sentences - but once I read those two sentences, I wanted more - and my obsession with Kay Hooper's books was a given. The above line is the opening of the first chapter of her book "Haven" and is a part of a series of books, second one to be released in November - I can hardly wait!

It crawled along the air that hung heavy as wet wool over the glade.

Nora Roberts - Blood Brothers. A lot darker then I expected from a woman who is famous for writing romance novels - and I am not a fan of that genre. I was as in my late teens. Now I am more of a dark fantasy kind of gal.

Okay last one:

As I have seen the world through Witch's eyes, I have been fortunate enough to live each moment of my life with the knowledge and deep feeling that the globe I walk upon feels my step, hears my voice and answers in return.

This one is from a non-fiction book called "Celebrate The Earth" by Laurie Cabot.

This was a fun little post to write, now it is your turn. What are your favorite first lines in books?

Blessings to You!

P.S. I will participate this year in the "Broomsticks On The Bayoo" Halloween Blog Party, and you are invited!
