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!
This has been another mega reading week for me, and to top it all off I got to meet one of my favourite authors Mr Jay Kristoff! He is absolutely hilarious in person, and at 5’2″ I felt like a hobbit standing near him. It was such a fun event, and I cant wait to read his upcoming releases.
This book has been on my TBR FOREVER! I need to stop putting it off and dive into this world that I’m sure I will love.
The matriarch of House Kore was running late for dinner. In the normal course of things, she did not care for punctuality. Punctuality, with its unseemly whiff of eagerness, was for peasants. And she was neither a peasant nor eager to endure a meal with the mongrel heir of House Nyx.
Well, I think this has definitely whet my appetite, and I’m so glad I picked this up sooner rather than later. Are you ready to find out what it is?
I literally read this book in a day! It is that good. I loved everything from the setting to the character… and let me tell you the characters absolutely make this book! The only problem now is that I have to wait so long for the sequel! Have you read this? Let me know your thoughts.
