FIRST LINE FRIDAY’S #10

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!

 

Today’s first line Fridays is here, so let’s step into a world of magic…
“He was an easy mark. (Name of someone that might give it away) smiles behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her store”
Thoughts: this intrigued me more than I expected. Obviously she might try to steal something from them? But how? And what? now I really want to pick this one up !
The book is,
36406448
THE CITY OF BRASS BY S.A CHAKRABORTY
so what did you think? did this first line make you want to pick this book up? let me know in the comments below!
until next time,
Sarah
