First Chapter, First Paragraph, 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.
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:
It is dark, dark seven A.M. on Christmas Eve Eve.
Snow flurries fall in the city.  Actors walking home from a cast party on Broad  Street try to catch them on their tongues.  The ingenue lands a  flake on her hot cheek and erupts into a fit of laughter.  In Fishtown, a nightmare trembles through the nose and paws of a dog snoozing under the construction flats.  The Ritten-house Square fountain switches to life with a pronouncement of water while Curtis Hall musicians, late for final rehearsal, arpeggiate through the park.


Should I keep reading?
What do you think?

My book?


I have chosen this for our December read in one of my bookclubs.
What do you think?

Seems Christmas-sy - which I'm not sure I'm read for - but hope it works good for your book group! :-)

This is new to me, but I like it. I agree with Kay - I'd save it for a Christmas read.

It did not grab me right away, but I would keep reading.
