Friday Firsts (3): Heist Society
The first line can make or break a reader's interest. Just how well did the author pull you in to the story with their first sentence? To participate in this weekly book meme is extremely easy.
- Grab the book you are currently reading and open to the first page.
- Write down the first sentence in the first paragraph.
- Create a blog post with this information. (Make sure to include the title & author of the book you are using. Even an ISBN helps!)
- Did this first sentence help draw you into the story? Why or why not?

No one knew for certain when the trouble started at the Colgan school.
I have been putting off reading Heist Society ever since I got it. That is why you can see that I have it as my "Currently Reading" (see right sidebar; topmost) for almost a week now. Normally, I finish a book in four (4) hours. But these are lazy days for me and all I want is to watch Chinese wuxia TV series like The Condor Trilogy.
Yet, as I read the first sentence (and subsequently the first chapter - remember my first Friday Firsts post) I was finally drawn into the story (buwa- LOL, it's a Waray term) and got reading.
