First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 


First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, now hosted by Vicki at I'd Rather Be At The Beach, is where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon. 

Today I'm featuring my current read, Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty.  The excerpt shared is from an ARC I received from the publisher before the book's publication in November 2018.  


'I'm fine,' said the woman.  "There's nothing wrong with me.'

She didn't look fine to Yao.

So begins Liane Moriary's latest novel . . .

What do you think?  Would  you keep reading?
As I said, I've had this book in my possession for quite some time, and had hoped to begin it way before now.  I've enjoyed other books by this author, and I find the setting for the story--a health spa in Australia called Tranquillum House--both intriguing and different.  So, when the book was the suggested read for one of my book clubs, I was eager to start it.  I've only read the first few chapters, which present the character introductions.  I'm liking the book so far . . .

  1. I've got this one to read still! It sounds awesome! If only I had another pair of eyes to read at the same time and faster lol

    Here's my Tuesday Teaser Post. Have a lovely day!

  2. I tried listening to this one, but, too many characters to make it work on audio. I'll try the print sometime. ENJOY

  3. I've seen a lot of people talking about this book. The cover is similar to another book I read, so I'm always confused at first glance. lol. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. This one has been on and off the top of my stack and hope to get to it next year!

  5. I keep meaning to move this one forward on my Kindle! Love the sound of it so far. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: ”GOOD GIRL, BAD GIRL”

  6. I have had the Kindle version of this book for a very long time. Can't wait to read your thoughts.
