First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - My Coney Island Baby; Billy O'Callaghan

Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where  readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book that they are reading or plan to read. 

My Coney Island Baby; Billy O'Callaghan
Harper Collins - 2019

The Boardwalk

"The air out here is mean with cold.  It was bitter on the journey out from Manhattan too, but nothing like this.  This is bleakness without respite. An hour in the subway was an hour shielded from the wind, and now it was almost noon and already threatening snow."

When I read the overview, I really thought this would be a "me" book. I'm hoping it's a good one.

Would you read more?


  1. I think I remember reading about this one and it looked good. Hope you like it.

  2. Oh, I like the sound of the overview - would definitely continue. Hope it's a great read for you!

  3. I love the setting...and I can feel the cold in the air! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. I hope it turns out to be a "you" book!

  5. That doesn't sound overly exciting, but we're not fans of cold!

  6. Maybe if I was in the right mood I would enjoy it. I hope it lives up to your expectations. See what MK is featuring at Girl Who Reads

  7. This does look good, Diane. I'd have to read this wrapped up all cosy and warm by an open fire! Sounds bleak and chilly :)

    Here's my Tuesday Teaser post. Hope you're having a good week!

  8. I like the cover and setting, so I'd give it a try.

  9. I'd definitely keep reading!
