First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

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?

  • 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
  • Finally… reveal the book!

When I tell you that my white name is Cedar Hawk Songmaker and that I am the adopted child of Minneapolis liberals, and that when I went looking for my Ojibwe parents and found that I was born Marky Potts I hid the knowledge, maybe you’ll understand. Or not.


Perhaps not the most captivating first lines, but it definitely is intriguing. Despite having this book on my mental TBR list for ages and even owning it for a whole year, I haven’t gotten to it. But, this month, I will.

It is…

 

Future Home of the Living God

I haven’t heard much about the book. Eight friends of mine have it on their shelf, but only two have actually read it. And it looks like it’s going to be one that I like or dislike. I’m not anticipating to love it, but I want to experience the book.


Talk to me!
Have you read this?
If so, what did you think?
