Again trying a new type of post. I'm actually having a lot of fun trying all these memes for the first time. Also I promise reviews are coming! I know it's been awhile, but I'm working on a bunch right now and you will start to see them next week, possibly this weekend even.
This meme is called Book Beginnings on Friday and it's hosted by Rose City Reader. It's where you take a new book or one you haven't read and post the beginning sentence or so. Then you post your initial thoughts about that sentence or your thoughts on the book itself. I thought this looked like fun, so here we go.
Once, Long Before Enchantment was eclipsed by doubt, an anxious and desperate king awaited the birth of his first child. As it was written, the king's eldest would inherit the kingdom, but only if the child was a son. If the firstborn was a daughter, the monarchy would someday pass to the king's younger brother, his most ardent rival.
Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan. I have been super excited to read this book for months, ever since I got my copy from Scholastic. the book looked and sounded amazing and the first few lines don't disappoint. I couldn't just give you all one line though, so hope you all don't mind that I shared three. *snicker*
I'm excited to see what happens with the Princess and what happens when the kingdom goes to the kings rival brother. I know I'm very intrigued to see what happens. I love the wording the author is using this this book so far too, it sounds like a fairytale that isn't going to have it's happy ending. But then again, I'm honestly hoping the Princess comes out kicking some butt and takes over!
What do you all think from these lines? I would really love to hear your thoughts.
