Tuesday Twist

EPIC NEWS (clarification: This is Epic news for me. It should be for you too, but some might disagree - you can go elsewhere if that's the case)! Candyland is doing a special guest post over at my blog Jules and the Stars.

You.Do.Not.Want.To.Miss.The.Awesome.

Four Words: Matt Brady & Candyland (& counts as a word)

So after you're done checking out Jules place you can decide which of these tickels your fancy (who says that?).

First Sentences
1. My sister Justine always believed that the best way to deal with your fear of the dark is to pretend it's really light.
2. An hour before Azalea's first ball began, she paced the ballroom floor, tracing her toes in a waltz.
3. I woke up in a dingy claw-foot bathtub in an unfamiliar pink-tiled bathroom.

Secret Reveal
1. Door #1
2. Door #2
3. Door #3

I hope you love these as much as I do. This week personally I loved all the beginning sentences (as did my cat who is currently laying on top of #3).

Christina Lee said...

They are all good- the first one was most striking to me! LOVE when you do these!

Vicki Rocho said...

First lines #3. Based only on the cover - #2. Go figure.

Kelly said...

I love this feature of yours. It really shows what hooks you and what doesn't in a first sentence plus it introduces me to new books. These are all great but #3 hooked me best.

Summer Ross said...

Oh number three sounds like it might be very promising!

Nicole Zoltack said...

Tough choice this time. I think I like 3 best. 2 made me pause because I have a WIP with a princess named Azalea and the first scene, she's dressing for a ball. Weird, huh? I wrote the opening scene in high school... it's been collecting dust ever since.

I wouldn't read the book (not my style) but #3 caught my attention.

Teenage Bride said...

Kelly Dexter said...

Number two sounds like something I would love, and the cover is so beautiful!

Matthew Rush said...

Melissa Gill said...

#3 sounds like fun to me.

Colene Murphy said...

#3! Haven't read a one of them! But definitely need to.

Elana Johnson said...

I know nothing. Le sigh. I will now open the doors.

Sondrae Bennett said...

number 3 grabbed me today. Now I'm off to open the doors and see what they all are.

Abby Minard said...

#1 or #3 for me. :)

Jemi Fraser said...

#3 works best for me - all 3 have awesome covers! :)

Sitting Behind Homeplate said...

I went with #3 and was really surprised - I was actually thinking about buying The Lying Game. That settles it, I'll just have to now!

Theresa Milstein said...

3 sounded the most intriguing. I didn't know these. Thanks!

Hannah Kincade said...

I went with door #3. It seems to be a popular one.
