First Line Friday #8

So, what’s it about?

First Lines Fridays is a weekly — obviously — feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words where we dare to ask: What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author, or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? It is a meme that allows us to explore the world of fiction.

I myself judge books by their author, cover, and notoriety. So, seeing people do this challenge for months has had me pick up some pretty amazing books.

How it works?

• Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.

• Copy the first few lines, but don’t provide any other details about the book just yet — let’s see if it hooks the reader in!

• Finally…reveal the book!

Hi guys and welcome back to another instalment of First line Fridays! I can’t believe i’ve been doing this for two months, holy moly! Let’s get going with the last First lines Friday for November

“Seven hundred and thirty-three days after my mom died, forty-five days after my dad eloped with a stranger he met on the internet, thirty days after we then up and moved to California, and only seven days after starting as a Junior at a brand-new school, where I know approximately no one, an email arrives”


WELL, I’m a fan of run on sentences, because i tend to talk in them, and talk a lot. But this one was just a bit TOO much. I was still intrigued by it, and what this email might contain, but overall, it stayed in a solid, one day, TBR spot.



Overall, I’m not disinterested, nor really interested? Funny how that works!

Until next time,
