First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - July 7th

It's Tuesday!  It's time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)

Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!

I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here's info about that meme:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read

* Open to a random page

* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I just started reading this one by one of my favorite authors, Steven Manchester.

First Chapter... 

It was eternal dawn. Two silhouettes stood in the soft light of a cloud. Through the veil of fog, the taller shadow handed the other a thin book and patted him on the shoulder. The gold embossed, burgundy cover was the approximate size of a menu.


"This is your life. Order whatever you wish, but keep in mind - whatever you choose to taste, you have to finish," He told Phinn before sending him into the world.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Blessed with a high emotional IQ, Phinn Reed enters the world with the promise of finding his soul mate. With heaven’s memories erased, his romantic quest teaches him that the heart often sees clearer than the eyes—and that not everyone has ordered the same items from The Menu. Evidence that love stories come in many different forms, The Menu is a spiritual journey involving more than just a man and a woman; it is a modern-day tale that reaches far beyond the boundaries of reason.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. What a great sounding book! Enjoy, and thanks for sharing.

  2. I think I'd need more than one paragraph to decipher this read.

  3. I like the way the cover reflects the opening paragraph! Sounds a fun, at first I thought it sounded more of a horror story than a romance. Until I read the synopsis.

    Here's my Tuesday post! Hope you're having a great week!

  4. This sounds like a refreshingly unique plot. Hope you enjoy it!

  5. Sounds like an interesting and unique story. The cover is striking in its simplicity.

  6. I haven't heard of this one but it sounds really interesting! I'll have to look for it.
