Book Beginnings...on a Friday

A little bit of fun on a Friday, this weekly meme is hosted by A Few More Pages
I'll share the first line (or two) of the book I'm currently reading (including the title and author) and let you know what my first impressions are - good or bad!

I've blogged a little bit about my current book this week so I was going to share a beginning from one on my TBR pile, however, when I went back to the first page of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County it suddenly added a whole lot more to the story, even though I'm already two thirds of the way through! So here it is...

"The day I laid Robert Morgan to rest was remarkable for two reasons. First, even though it was August, the sky overhead was as rough and cold as a January lake; and second, it was the day I started to shrink."
p1, Prologue, The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, by Tiffany Baker

I'm really enjoying this read. It's slightly different, a rather slow story, but beautifully written and the author has given us time to really grow with the characters. 


  1. Hey, neighbor (I'm in Whatcom County, WA),
    What an enchanting opening line! I look forward to your full review. Can't remember if I'm following yet or not, so I am now!

  2. How intriguing! I wonder how much the person shrinks.

  3. Interesting! Very intriguing cover, too.

  4. That's so intriguing! I like the cover as well :) looks promising!

  5. Interesting beginning! I wonder if the narrator shrinks metaphorically or literally?
