Here are my selections:
"He wished the phone would stop ringing."
Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo
"The great fish moved silently through the night water, propelled by short sweeps of its crescent tail."
Jaws by Peter Benchley
"I used to love this season."
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
"They'll call it chance, or luck, or call it Fate--"
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
"Most people think about age and experience in terms of years, but it's really only moments that define us."
The Overton Window by Glenn Beck
This was an interesting experience! I love the element of serendipity. Some books were more or less what I was expecting based on the first sentence and others were COMPLETELY different! I am not sure that I will read all of them, but I will take a look and decide and will either add them to Mt. TBR or keep 'em moving along.
I would be happy to share the first sentences of my replacement books, but I don't know if that would dampen the surprise for folks, so I will leave it up to all of you. :)
Thanks for the fun, waternixie!
