First Line Friday #1

Wow a third post this week? Who am I?

Also, I know I know! It’s first lines, but I felt like the rest would give it away!

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!

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 5 stars 🌟

If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying over how much this book has broken my heart. Illuminae should honestly should have a disclaimer that it will rip out your heart and you will cry a lot. Illuminae is one of the few books that I went into with high expectations and wasn’t disappointed.

You’ll also enjoy this book if you’re a fan of:

  • Sci-Fi
  • Technology
  • Creative Book Format
  • Books that hit you right in the feels
  • Books that make you cry
  • Fast-paced read
  • Plot twists GALORE

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart (ARC Review)

🌟3.5 stars 🌟

I thought the synopsis sounded interesting, but the story itself was unoriginal. This book was well written, but every plot twist could be seen from a mile away for anyone that avidly reads YA.

I think this book would be great for people that enjoy:

  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  • Instalove
  • Love Triangles
  • Strong Women Empowering Women

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

🌟4.5 stars🌟

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this book on Goodreads, so I decided to give it a try for myself. I loved the concept of Caraval and learning more about the game and how it’s played. Although, I was annoyed by Scarlett for the entirety of this book, it was an enjoyable read overall.

To start off I think that this book would be great for people that enjoy:

  • Action in the first chapter
  • Fast-paced novels
  • Carnivals
  • Mysterious characters
  • “Bad Boy” trope
  • Scavenger hunts
