April 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.

 

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan 
“Lost in the shadows of the shelves, I almost fall off the ladder.”

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
“I shouldn’t have come to this party.”

The Queen Underneath by Stacey Filak
“Gemma hurried through the tunnels of Under, avoiding piles that might be rubbish and could be worse.”

Halfway To The Grave by Jeaniene Frost
“I stiffened at the red and blue lights flashing behind me, because there was no way I could explain what was in the back of my truck.”

The Girl in 6E by A.R. Torre
“Undressing is an everday occurrence.”
