Book Meme

OK, this is too much fun to pass up on. Snagged from badfalcon koryou and elebridith


Choose 10 books that you like. List the first sentence or so of each of those books. Let other people try to figure out what book that first line is from.

Here we go:

1. The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallowed subcategory.

2. Fear sucks. Because you never know when it will attack.

3. The year 1866 was marked by a strange occurrence, an unexplained and inexplicable phenomenon that surely no one has forgotten.

4. Velt to scrub to fields to farms to these first tumbling houses that rise from the earth.

5. It's still my favorite book in all the world.

6. At the height of the long wet summer of the Seventhy-seventh Year of Sendovani, the Thiefmaker of Camorr paid a sudden and unannounced visit to the Eyeless Priest at the temple of Perelandro, desperately hoping to sell him the Lamora boy. @mart1na got it, The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch

7. Some years ago there was in the city of York a society of magicians. @mart1na again, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke

8. Kail, the Rivan warden, objected strenuously when King Belgarion told him that he and his queen planned to make the journey to the northern end of the Vale of Aldur unattended, but Garion uncharacteristically put his foot down. Polgara The Sorceress - David and Leigh Eddings, guessed correctly by koryou

9. It begins, as most things begin, with a song.

10. It began with my father not wanting to see the Last Rabbit, and ended up with me being eaten by a carnivorous plant.


Some are rather easy others not so much (I imagine). I'll also end with a quote I found recently in a book and actually liked so much I had to write it down: "Any moment called now is always full of possibilities" - From "Kraken" by China Miéville
