FIRST LINE FRIDAY #4

I did it, a whole MONTH of posts? awesome. Let’s get onto the last first line friday for October. Do you want me to continue this through November? let me know below

So, what’s it about? 

First Lines Fridays is a weekly — obviously — feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words where we dare to ask: What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author, or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? It is a meme that allows us to explore the world of fiction.

I myself judge books by their author, cover, and notoriety. So, seeing people do this challenge for months has had me pick up some pretty amazing books.

How it works? 

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t provide any other details about the book just yet — let’s see if it hooks the reader in!
  • Finally…reveal the book!

Lets go,

You’re still alive in alternate universes, Theo, but I live in the real world where this morning you’re having an open casket funeral. I know you’re out there, listening. And you should know I’m really pissed because you swore you would never die and yet here we are. It hurts even more because this isn’t the first promise you’ve broken.”

MY THOUGHTS

 

THE REVEAL
HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME – ADAM SILVERA

SYNOPSIS

OCD-afflicted seventeen-year-old, Griffin, has just lost his first love – his best friend, ex-boyfriend and the boy he believed to be his ultimate life partner – in a drowning accident. In a desperate attempt to hold onto every last piece of the past, a broken Griffin forges a friendship with Theo’s new college boyfriend, Jackson. And Griffin will stop at nothing to learn every detail of Theo’s new college life, and ultimate death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin’s own version of the truth – both in terms of what he’s willing to hide, and what true love ultimately means…

 

SO, HAVE YOU READ THIS BOOK? Does this first line make you want to?
until next time,
