Today’s post of Weekday Memes will be all about First Lines Friday, a theme where I’ll be writing the first couple of lines of a book of my choice without revealing its name. Then, after revealing the name, we’ll see if people would want to read it based on only these lines.
So, here are the lines *drumroll*:
“Why so afraid?” we ask ourselves. “She is coming to kill us,” we reply. We were once alarmed by this feeling of being two bodies at once. We have grown accustomed to it in the cycles since the shift occurred, since both our currentgifts dissolved into this new, strange one. We know how to pretend, now, that we are two people instead of one – though we prefer, when we are alone, to relax into the truth. We are one person in two bodies.
Ok, those were more lines than expected. Soooooooo, revealing the book:
The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth, the sequel to Carve the Mark.
After reading ONLY this, I would totally read this book. I think these are great punchlines and a great interesting start to a book, without revealing too much but keeping it interesting. I have started the book but laid it aside for Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and I didn’t regret this – guilty. I thought the start of the book was a bit slow (except for this, this is a pretty good start), I read until page 103 and nothing happened really so I stopped. Of course I will continue this at some point but for right now, I won’t continue reading.
So, after this, would you read the book? Write it in my comments!!!
