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!

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

I was tagged by the lovely Bookish Paige to do this tag! I think this is a perfect one to do since my summer vacation just started recently as well, so I have more time to read and relax!

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
- Love Triangles
- Strong Women Empowering Women

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
- Mysterious characters
- “Bad Boy” trope
- Scavenger hunts

I am still not really sure how I feel about this book? I loved it enough that I read it in two days and stayed up to finish it, but it was also riddled with overused tropes and left me with lots of questions.

I thought I would enjoy this book more than I actually did. It was challenging to get through for me, because I felt like the characters fell flat and the plot was a little confusing to follow.

This book is so precious! I loved reading about the adventures of Percy, Felicity, and Monty! I laughed so much. As an aside, I read this along with listening to the audiobook and Christopher Coulsen does a marvelous job of narrating this novel!
