I just love First Sentences, and about 5 months ago I started with a new meme posted on Monday which featured those great first sentences. Since I didn’t start until much later in the year, I picked a few from the meme posts I made, and went through my list to find earlier wonderful first sentences. Again, like all the others, the order for these books are totally random. 🙂 The books found here are books I read during 2015. 😀
