Friday Memes: Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich

Happy Friday everybody!!

Book Beginnings
Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.
The Friday 56

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
  • Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

My book this week is Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich.

This is the 16th Stephanie Plum book.

First Sentence:
My Uncle Pip died and left me his lucky bottle. I suppose I'm fortunate, bacause he left my Grandma Mazur his false teeth.  
Page 56, sentence 5:
I'd send Ranger home early the night before, deciding I wasn't ready to get that lucky. A night with Ranger was tempting, but the cost would be high.
This is another book in a series that I have been reading since the beginning. Stephanie Plum, Ranger, Morelli, Lula and the other quirky characters and the Jersey setting are fun to visit every once in a while.


  1. Lol, that's funny! Still haven't tried the series & I know I should! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Fantastic first sentence. I've heard good things about this series so I will have to try it some day. I hope you enjoy Sizzling Sixten.

  3. Oh, that one made me chuckle! I have only read one Stephanie Plum book so far, but I have Finger Lickin' Fifteen on my stacks.

    Here's mine:

  4. That first sentence is a riot-hard to resist reading the story after an opening like that. Enjoy your story, and thank you for visiting Fresh Ink Books.

  5. Can't wait!! Love Stephanie Plum and her own gang.

  6. Funny opening. The heroine sounds very fun and sensible at the same time.

    My Book Beginning and Friday 56.

  7. Between teeth and a bottle, I know what I would prefer :-) Great opening, very funny

  8. False teeth -- what a thing to inherit. Thanks for stopping by my post.
