May 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.

Paper Princess by Erin Watt
“‘Ella, you’re wanted in the principal’s office,’ Ms. Weir says before I can step inside her precalculus classroom.”

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
“Aliens are stupid.”

Broken Prince by Erin Watt 
“The house is dark and silent when I let myself in through the mudroom off the kitchen.”

Twisted Palace by Erin Watt
“‘ Where were you between eight p.m. and eleven p.m. tonight?'”
