FIRST LINE FRIDAY’S #9

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!

So, this is actually a really fun thing to do, hence why I’ve continued it so let’s keep going for the month of December
“It’s sunset, and the sky is aflame, not with clouds or dust, but with the iridescent feathers of a million genehacked passenger pigeons”
Thoughts: first of all, this interests me because, what does “genehacked” mean. I also like how this first line is written so this is a promising start to a book I need to read.

until next time,
