First Line Friday 20.07.18

First line Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words. Each week, choose a book from your TBR or your current read, turn to the first page and copy the first line/s. Just enough to hook the reader, then reveal which book the mysterious line is from.

I’ve decided to give my first ever First Line Friday a slight twist.. as I’ve just finished my current read I thought I’d copy a first line from three different YA books and see which one hooks the most of us! I will also reveal the books lower down the page.

Book A:

‘Oh-em-gee! Are you playing with your Barbie?!’

Book B:

That night, everybody lost something.

Book C:

I always thought the moment you met the great love of your life would be more like the movies.

Which one or more (or none) of these lines has sparked a flame of interest in you?

For me, it’s Book B, however I am drawn to them all. I love the mystery and sinister feel to the sentence in Book B, it already sounds like a fascinating novel.

Books revealed below..

Book A: I am Thunder by Muhammad Khan

Book B: Spellbook of Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

Book C: Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland
