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? I’m kind of using this as a way to keep track of what I want to read next or at least soon. Follow the rules below:
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!
So here it is:
Persephone stood on the bare mountaintop, her ruffled ivory dress whipping around her legs, her masses of white-blond curls streaming behind her.
What book is this?
Do y’all know?
It’s Blue Lily, Lily Blue (Raven Cycle#3) by Maggie Stiefvater
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
I am so into this series right now, after finishing The Dream Thieves I just need to continue, so Blue Lily, Lily Blue is next on my list. I’m hoping from the name that this book focuses a bit more on Blue, as that was kind of the case of The Dream Thieves focusing on Ronan a bit more. I just love her and the Goodreads summary is making me really question what’s going to happen and is just overall really mysterious.
