Tuesday Intros is a Bookish Meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea, where you share the first paragraph of the book you’re currently reading to see if others would read or pass based on only that. This week I’m reading The Lifeboat Clique by Kathy Parks. Here’s the first paragraph:

“Trevor Dunham talked quite a bit about his man part just before he drowned. Of course, I guess that’s what happens when you’re dying of thirst. It turns you into a drunk. Not a fun drunk, but a dying drunk, when all the cravings come to a screeching halt, except for that of plain, cool water and the brain shrinks back to the dumbest part, the part that sees horses galloping on the flat ocean and talks about and talks about crazy things and generally makes a drunken, dying ass of itself.”

So. That looks good, right? To be fair, I haven’t read past the first few pages yet, but it looks like a really good book. I’m excited about it. How about you? Would you read The Lifeboat Clique based on its first paragraph, or pass? Let me know in the comments, and be sure to link up if you posted a Tuesday Intros!

 

Well Wishes & Candy Fishes,

Kait 🙂

    • Me too. I ended up reading something else instead, so I’m still not sure what happens after the first page or two. Happy reading! 🙂
