June 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.

The Last Star by Rick Yancey
“This is my body.”

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf
“King Sref of Cavanos watches me with the deadened eyes of a raven circling a corpse-patient, waiting to devour me the second I let my guard down.”

Rome by Jay Crownover
“It’s my favorite thing ever to have all the people I love in one place at the same time.”

Nash by Jay Crownover
High School… Not the best years of my life. “

The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L Armentrout 
“Dusty, empty shoe boxes, stacked taller and wider than her slim body, wobbled as she pressed her back against them, tucking her bony knees into her chest.”

Rowdy by Jay Crownover
“I don’t have a lot of great memories from my childhood.”
