Book Beginnings on Friday August 24, 2012

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include  include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

My book beginnings this Friday is from Monster in My Closet by R. L. Naquin.  Just a small teaser, there really was a monster in her closet.  Here is the first sentence:

Monster in My Closet (Monster Haven, #1)"Of all the possible weapons I might have grabbed, I chose a toilet brush."

I found this to be a great way to start a book that so far is fun to read.

Here is the Goodreads Summary:

I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn’t imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I’d seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no?

After all, I’ve always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don’t get me wrong, I like helping people—and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course


  1. That first line almost made me laugh out loud at my desk at work! Sounds like a fun read.

  2. That is a great opening line! Thanks for sharing...and here's MY FRIDAY MEMES POST

  3. That is a funny opening line, and it's even funnier because when I first saw the cover I thought the girl was sitting on a toilet.

    Here's my Book Beginning.

  4. I hope the toilet brush does the trick. Sounds line an amusing fantasy novel.

  5. Even though I don't usually read paranormal, I think I'd like this book. Sounds like it could be really funny!
    My Book Beginning is from Memories.

  6. Well, that certainly gets your attention!

    Thanks for participating in BBOF!
