January 2018 Reads | First Lines

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.

Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce
“Each year, at the end of March, a great fair was held in Cría, the capital of Galla.”

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
“This is how I kill someone.”

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
” The sounds of laughter and music were dying down on the thousandth floor, the party breaking up by bits and pieces as even the rowdiest guests finally stumbled into the elevators and down to their homes.”

Final Girls by Riley Sager
“The forest had claws and teeth.”

Dear Martin by Nic Stone
“From where he’s standing across the street, Justyce can see her: Melo Taylor, ex-girlfriend, slumped over beside her Benz on the damp concrete of the FarmFresh parking lot.”

Wolf-Speaker by Tamora Pierce
“The wolves of the Long Lake Pack, gorged on a careless mountain sheep, slept as they digested their meal.”

The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee
“It would be several hours before the girl’s body was found.”

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Sweat dotted my brow. Tendrils of red hair clung to my neck. My legs fel like I’d been sitting in a sauna. I was pretty sure there was a waterfall of sweat coursing between my breast, and that alone put my mood somewhere between slapping someone and pushing them in front of a trolley.”
