August 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 books.

Puddin’ by Julie Murphy
“I’m a list maker. Write it down. (Using my gel pens and a predetermined color scheme, of course.) Make it happen. Scratch it off. There is no greater satisfaction than a notebook full of beautifully executed lists.”

Uncharted by Erin Cashman
“Elizabeth Mayville did not hold with premonitions, deja vu, or any other superstitious nonsense.”

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
“I’m on the toliet at the 9:30 Club, and I’m wondering how mermaids pee.”

Keeper of the Bees by Meg Kassel 
” I can’t tell you how many cities, towns, villages I have passed through. I stopped caring about their names long ago.”

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase
“My very first memory isn’t all that different from anyone else’s.”

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas
“They fire off a round of texts at me five minutes after midnight: We’re coming. Get ready.”

The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas
” This house was made for someone without a soul.”
