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!
Are you ready for this week’s quote?
“Kora and Nova had never seen a Mesarthim, but they knew all about them. Everyone did. They knew about their skin: ‘Blue as Sapphires,’ said Nova, though they had never seen a sapphire, either.”
This is an easy one!
So, no hints this week…
Have you guessed?
Yes or No?
Ok, Keep going…..
Here it is…
I’m almost done with Strange the Dreamer, so I will be picking this up soon. I am really looking forward to it. Have you read both books?
