My Book Beginning
The Marble Collector by Cecelia Ahern
When it comes to memory there are three categories: things I want to forget, things I can’t forget, and things I’d forgotten until I remember them.
I love the opening to this novel as it just says so much truth; there really are three categories of memories. I have a really good memory when it comes to remembering the things I’d rather forget so this book really appeals to me in such a big way.
I bought this book as a treat for myself recently and really hope to have time to read it soon, especially now I’ve read the opening line!
