September 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.

Seventh Born by Monica Sanz
“Relegated to a small, dark alcove in a corner of the Aetherium’s Witchling Academy library, Seraphina Dovetail shifter on her small wooden stool, plucking a fingernail against the frayed edge of the black book on her lap – the only book she was allowed to read for leisure: The Unmitigated Truths of Seventhborns.”

Wait For You by J. Lynn
“There were two things in life that scared the ever-loving crap out of me.”

Home and Away by Candice Montgomery
“I take a major hit.”

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
“The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit”

Light Years by Kass Morgan
“The airlock opened with a hiss, and Cormak shot off through the blisteringly hot, pink-tinged air.”

  1. I absolutely love this feature! I also find it interesting to see what attracts other readers to books. I’m usually the weird one that reads the last paragraph of the book to see if I might want to read the book. It’s never the first paragraph for some insane reason. Love the line for Uglies.
