(no subject)

You know the drill.

1. Choose five of your all time favorite books.
2. Take the first sentence of the first chapter and make a list in your journal.
3. Don't reveal the author or the title of the book.
4. Now everyone try and guess.

1. I have it on good authority that my liberal friends in the news media, who account for about 98 of all my friends in the news media, are planning a big party to congratulate me for writing this book. (nope, not Ann Coulter *g*) (Bernie Goldberg's Bias -- goes to ellory1... even though she Googled it!)

2. Lest anyone should suppose that I am a cuckoo's child, got on the wrong side of the blanket by lusty peasant stock and sold into indenture in a shortfallen season, I may say that I am House-born and reared in the Night Court proper, for all the good it did me. (sjhw_tolerance got it -- Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey)

3. After the apple had been cut in half, the halves had been sewn together with coarse black thread. (Dean Koontz's The Face -- the Googler again)

4. Tuesday was a fine California day, full of sunshine and promise, until Harry Lyon had to shoot someone at lunch. (sjhw_tolerance got half of it... it's a Dean Koontz book *g*)

5. "There are dragons in the twins' vegetable garden." (maisfeeka got it -- A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L'Engle)

  • Current Music: Ryan Cabrerra: True
Yeah, well...#2 was a given for me. ;-) Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey. And I say #4 is something by Koontz.
No. 5 is Meg isn't it? And I'm pretty sure that it's from the 1st book is the series. So... A Wrinkle in Time by Magdeleine L'Engle
A Wind In The Door? I had to look... I knew it wasn't Many Waters, since that one was the twins, but hadn't a clue which of the other two it was.
#5 A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L'Engle.

And #3... so familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.
I'll never forget that one. It's a book I've read over and over at different ages, and it always means something to me.
And is Number 5 "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeline L'Engel?

I'm so sure I recognize that sentence
3. Dean Koontz The Face.
(Have to love google and author's having the first chapter online. :)'d think the girl that used a L'Engle quote would recognize *another* L'Engle quote. :-P
I loooooooove, lovelovelove Kushiel's Dart and the 2 sequels. They were some of the best books I've ever read.
