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!
Ari was hiding out in the Middle Ages.
The rubber knight’s costume she wore squeaked with each movement and smelled like her brother — before he embraced deodorant.
Ah, those days, right? Back when good ole puberty was happening and we were in denial about it. But, this book is a very new release. Y’all probably know what it is already. It’s fantasci. It’s one I’m very much on the fence about.
So, I really love Arthurian legends, so I’m very interested in this book. However… I hate James Patterson. I think that everything he touches, he ruins. Genuinely. Chantel thinks that I’m ridiculous, but I seriously hate him and everything about him. Still, I’m going to try this book… even if it kills me.
Have you read this?
What did you think?
Am I insane with my hatred?
