Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph or two of a book that I’m reading or plan to read soon

Feel free to join in by posting your own FCFPTI and linking below

Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

Forks. Knives. Spoons.
In that order.
Britt-Marie is certainly not the kind of person who judges other
people. Far from it.

But surely no civilized person would even think of arranging a
cutlery drawer in a different way from how cutlery drawers are sup-
posed to be arranged?
We’re not animals, are we?

  1. I’ve been wanting to read this book. I have another one by the author, still unread, called My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry.


  2. I’m not sure where this story is going. I’d like to keep going and find out. Thanks for hosting Vicki.

  3. I love Backman!

  4. I love the cover and it sounds like it might be a bit of a quirky read.

  5. I haven’t read her yet but this sounds like a fun read. Thanks for sharing. Here’s my link for today’s 1C, 1P & Tantalizing Teaser: https://mysmsbooks.wordpress.com/2018/06/12/TTT-1C1P-the-shipping-news

  6. Well, I still haven’t read any of this author’s books. Know they are beloved by many. That being said, I agree with the first part – my cutlery drawer is arranged just so as well. LOL

  7. Love the idea, a quick way to intrigue people with the books you’re reading. very cool.

  8. I haven’t read this author before. Sounds like a good one, although she’d hate to see my cutlery drawer. LOL

  9. I’ve read and enjoyed this author before. I’ve had a copy of this book for the longest time, patiently waiting on the shelf…

  10. haha! I have knives,forks and then spoons at the front!!

  11. Obviously, only a really dumb human animal would arrange a cutlery drawer in the wrong way. Other animals might figure out the right way. These days I’ve come to have less faith in the ability of human animals to do much right..

  12. I have my cuttlery the other way round 🙂

  13. Oh this sounds good and I do love that beginning. Because really how else would one arrange a cutlery drawer? I’ve been listening to A Man Called Ove but am struggling with it a little. I like it but I feel so bad for Ove!

    • I started AMCO and then put it down because he was such a grouch. Then I decided to give it another chance and fell in love with him. I love every Backman book I’ve read. I’m listening to another one right now.
