First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - Remarkably Bright Creatures; Shelby Van Pelt


Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book ReviewsEach week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read soon.  After reading and loving The Dolphin House by Audrey Schulman (no review yet), I thought this debut seemed like a good follow-up choice for me.

Ecco - May 2022

Day 1,299 of My Captivity

Darkness suits me.

Each evening, I await the click of the overhead lights, leaving only the glow from the main tank. Not perfect, but close enough.

Almost-darkness, like the middle-bottom of the sea. I lived there before I was captured and imprisoned. I cannot remember, yet I can still taste the untamed currents of the cold open water. Darkness runs through my blood.

What do you think --read more or pass?
