First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
- Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
- Finally… reveal the book!
I’m on a self-imposed book buying ban at the minute to try and help me narrow down my overwhelming TBR. It’s sooo hard with all the amazing books being released recently, but with over 100 un-read books on my shelves and over 200 on my kindle, I seriously need to make a dent in these before I pick up anything new. This book has been on my TBR for a while now and I have heard really good things about it so I’m hoping to pick it up soon.
“When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist.”
Well I’m intrigued! Are you ready to find out what it is???
I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this book, and I’m always up for a good re-telling. Add in mythology and I’m sure I’ll love it. Have you read this book before? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
