First Lines Friday #2

Hi guys! I’m actually back with the ‘First Lines Friday’, can’t believe I actually forgot about this weekly meme haha… but anyway, I’m planning on posting for this meme every Friday from now on for as long as possible. 🙂

The Rules Are The Following;

  • 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!

 

” A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep.

Hello listeners. To start off, I’ve been asked to read this brief notice. The City Council announces the opening of a new Dog Park at the corner of Earl and Summerset, near the Ralphs. They would like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the Dog Park.”

First Lines Friday

Helluuu

Decided to start another weekly book meme, seeing as I missed both this week due to exams (But I passed :D!). I think first lines are soo important for a book to be good. It has to hook you up and drag you into the story into a whole new world (god did you also sing that in your head?). That’s why I chose this weekly meme (also it looks so much fun).

The Rules Are The Following;

  • 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!

 

“Five past midnight in World’s End, three years after the End of the World, and, as usual, there was nothing to be seen or heard in the catacombs of the Universal City – except, of course, for the rats and (if you believed in them)  the ghosts of the dead.”

Runelight by Joanne Harris

Bildresultat för runelight joanne harris

The squabbling Norse gods and goddesses of Runemarks are back! And there’s a feisty new heroine on the scene: Maggie, a girl the same age as Maddy but brought up a world apart – literally, in World’s End, the focus of the Order in which Maddy was raised. Now the Order is destroyed, Chaos is filling the vacuum left behind… and is breaching the everyday world.

A chilling prophecy from the Oracle. A conflict between two girls. And with just twelve days to stave off the Apocalypse, carnage is about to be unleashed . . .”
