Tuesday Intros!



 
Today is Tuesday--- which means I'll be joining up with Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea and her First Chapter, First Paragraph
Tuesday Intros.
  (yay!  It's been so long since I've joined in--I'm excited)
Where,  bloggers post the first paragraph of a book they are thinking of reading --- and get everyone's opinion to see if it grabbed them from the beginning or not.


My Paragraph:

If you want to get Brandon's family talking, you need only ask about his childhood tantrums, aaannnnnnnnd they're off!  Their descriptions are sufficiently vivid that you'd think he'd had a screaming meltdown in the family car last week. But if you ask Brandon about his tantrums, he'll tell you that he was constantly hungry, and that low blood sugar will bring out the wailing, shrieking lunatic in anyone.

What do you think? Keep on Reading?



The Book:

Well I'm cheating because I've already read this one but I'd definitely keep reading! I really enjoyed this one and I definitely can relate to Brandon in this teaser.

Well I'm definitely curious for more. This is a new one for me.

Hi Debbie, Nice to see you. I read this book a couple of years ago and loved it. I used to read her blog all the time, but got away from it. I hope you enjoy the book.

I've eaten here in the past. Good service and good food.

Oops, sorry! I spoke too soon. I thought this was based upon SF's Delancey Street. My bad.

I would keep reading. Sounds like it could be funny and heartwarming. Happy Reading!

This sounds good! There are some topics I know family members love to talk about and it only takes a little nudge to get them going. :-)
