FIRST LINE FRIDAYS #13

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!

This is the last first line Friday’s of 2017……and all I can say? Is holy moly I don’t know what to think anymore…. this year went too fast !
 
“There is a monster in the forest, whispered the trees. “I know, Sister” I patted the vast trunk of an ancient cedar with one sun-browned hand as I passed. “I know” 
Thoughts: uuuuuh SIGN ME THE FUCK UP? this weirdly intrigued me straight away and made me feel so entrapped in a delicate tale woven like silk. I really want to read this now.
The book is
