First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:
- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
- Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first (I cheat a little bit here *cough*)
- Finally… reveal the book!
If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!
Let’s kick off the weekend with another First Lines Friday post! Today, I’m featuring a book that I’m reading for another wonderful The Write Reads blog tour. So far, it has certainly started off with a bang!
Now, let me share the first few lines to see if I can get you hooked.
“An alluring midnight seeped through the preserve, where huge, wavy leaves danced beneath the moonlight. The setting was suited for a meeting between two friends. But almost immediately, their conversation went awry.”
This is a YA fantasy featuring kids with superpowers.
Their powers are centered around the five senses.
It has very poetic writing.
