The very last challenge for this read-a-thon is hosted by Not-Really-Southern Vamp Chick. Here's what she had to say:
1. Pick up 6 random books from your bookshelf (and/or use the books you’re reading)
2. Take the first sentences from them.
3. Come up w/ the best 4 sentence opening paragraph to a book you can manage.
4. YOU GET A BONUS POINT IF IT INVOLVES VAMPIRES!
5. Leave your paragraph in the comments.
6. This could get interesting!
This looks like tons of fun; I can't wait to get started. Just let me go grab 6 random books....
Okay, I'm back. I'm going to write my paragraph first, to give you all a chance to see if you can recognize any of the sentences.
As summer wheat came ripe, so did I, born at home, on the kitchen floor. "Yep, I have a seriously sucky birthday," I told my cat, Nala. It is Nicko's first night out of the House of Foryx, and Jenna thinks he is going a little crazy. We have been lost to each for so long.

If you can guess which books I didn't use, I'll give you a week-long spotlight on this blog and my main blog (Artistically Amy).
