First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros 2-4-14

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph or maybe two of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph (or2) of the current book you are reading.

Chapter 1
Everlasting Gobstoppers
When Josey woke up and saw the feathery frost on her windowpane, she smiled. Finally, is was cold enough to wear long coats and tights. It was cold enough for scarves and shirts worn in layers. like camouflage. It was cold enough for her lucky red cardigan, which she swore had a power of it's own. She loved this time of year. summer was tedious with the light dresses she pretended to be comfortable in while secretly sure she looked like a loaf of white bread wearing a belt. The cold was such a relief

  I checked this book out at our library, it is the February read from Love of Reading group on Goodread, and it fits the 2nd item in the What's in a Name 2014 challenge, read a book whose title refers to a position of  royalty.

The Sugar Queen
by Sarah Addison Allen
Bantam Books June 2008

So what do you think?  Would you read on?  Maybe there is something to be said for all this recent cold?
 I will start this probably sometime today. It is due back at the library in 2 weeks.

Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
