August 2017 Reads | First Lines

First Lines-7

I decided that it would be fun to start a new feature to add the the wrap up of books I read every month. For me most of the time I pick up and look at books in the store it is the first lines that capture my attention and draw me in. It has always been intriguing to me the amount of thought that must go into those first words the author decides to but as the introduction to their work. The first lines are your first impression of the book.

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
“The body lay naked and facedown, a deadly gray, spatters of blood staining the snow around it.”

Lover Awakened by J.R Ward
“Goddamn it, Zsadist! Don’t jump—”

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
“I love Thursday nights.”

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy
“I want something of hers”

Black Bird of the Gallow by Meg Kassel
“Somewhere in this house is a set of binoculars.”
