Friday Firsts: The Librarians and the Lost Lamp by Greg Cox

November 18, 2016


Friday Firsts is a new meme that will run every Friday here on Tenacious Reader. It will feature the first few sentences/paragraph of my current book and my first impressions as well. It’s meant to be a quick and easy way to share a bit about what I am reading, and I would love to hear others join in sharing their current reads as well.

MacFarlane’s Brewery was located in an out-of-the-way corner of Old Town, several blocks away from the more touristy stretches along the city’s Royal Mile. The sooty brick building and its towering chimneys dated back to Victorian days. A rich, malty smell leaked from the cracks in the ancient masonry, and a chill autumn wind carried the intoxicating aroma down a dark, empty street to where Flynn Carsen stood watching. It was well after three in the morning and the brewery was closed, but that didn’t matter to Flynn. He wasn’t looking for a drink.

My First Impressions

So, I picked this one up on a bit of a whim. I was in the mood for something light, fast and fun, and so far this seems to be fitting the bill. I’ve not watched the TV show, so not sure if it might be better if I did. Also, I cant get this song out of my head while reading:

    The Librarians movies and TV show are incredibly clever and lot of fun! I’m looking forward to reading this book. Thanks for sharing!

    I like the way it sets the stage for whatever is to come: it’s a strong beginning, the kind that both grounds you in the story and takes hold of your imagination – hopefully keeping it there until the end.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Amazingly, I haven’t been watching the TV show either — but I did enjoy the movies, as campy as they were. I look forward to your thoughts on this when you’ve finished, Lisa. 🙂

    I know that I’ve read about this on another blog but can’t remember which just right at the moment. It sounds good though, who doesn’t love a bit of fun? Plus librarians.
