Book beginnings on Friday


Today’s book beginning is from a book I read and blogged about quite some time ago, but I kind of liked the first sentence, so I thought I’d feature it here.  It is from “Gods behaving badly” by Marie Phillips, a pretty funny story, especially if you know a little about Greek mythology.

Here is the first sentence:




One morning when Artemis was out walking the dogs, she saw a tree where no tree should be.

  1. This first line sounds intriguing 🙂
    If you love mythology mixed with witty sentences and great characters, you will love Jeanette Winterson’s Weight. It’s part of a whole re-writing mythology series. I have read two more, but this is the best, you won’t be disappointed!
