First Lines Friday

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 tell you working days is soooo much better for blogging! I’m only on for one more week, but I’ve found that I am SO much more productive on this shift. I’m also catching up on my backlog of ARC’s so i’m super excited to pick up a book off my TBR for once. How are all your backlog’s coming along? Let me know in the comments.

For this First Lines Friday I’ve decided to focus on a book I read last month that had my in hysterics nearly all the way through. Steeped in stereotypical (yet true) British culture and with some truly helpless but lovable characters. I flew through this book in a few days.

“”I’m where I am today because of a stuffed Seagul.”

Trust me the book gets weirder and more intriguing that this. Ready to find out what it is?

This book was so much better than I expected! A rip-roaring adventure that takes you from the Pyramids of Egypt, through ancient Rome, to our current ‘time’ and the future. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and will certainly be picking up more books by the author. If you want to read my full review you can check it out here.
