Friday Firsts : Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

FridayFirsts
Friday Firsts
 is a new meme that runs every Friday over on Tenacious Reader. The idea is to feature the first few sentences/paragraph of your current book and try and outline your first impressions as a result. This is a quick and easy way to share a snippet of information about your current read and to perhaps tempt others.  Stop on by and link up with Tenacious Reader.    This Friday I’m reading : Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

owlHave you ever had a deep-seated feeling that the world is out to get you?

And I don’t mean for doing something where you might actually deserve it: I mean the kind that happens despite your best intentions to be a good person, turn over a new leaf, and potentially make up for a possible – though clearly not intentional – slight you may have done others…

And even though you may be doing your damnedest to fix things, including crossing the globe twice in the last month, you could feel that the universe still decided it was going to tell you that you could royally fuck off?

You know, that kind of “out to get you” feeling?

Because from this side of the backpacker hostel picnic table, sitting across from my Nepal contact, Dev, that was pretty much the vibe I was getting.  To be honest, it was the vibe I’d been getting all month, like gum getting tangled in your hair.

My First Impressions

I think that beginning is a perfect start for the book and a great reflection of the series as well.  You can tell already, even from those first few lines, that things are going to go horribly wrong.

What you reading this Friday??  What are your first impressions??

    I still need to read this series. I did really enjoy the book of hers that I read (The Voodoo Killings)
