First Line Friday is a weekly feature that I now love to take part in.
It is hosted by Wandering Words.
What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or by its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?
Here is how it works:
– Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page.
– Copy the first few lines without giving the book away.
– Reveal the book.
As it is the first day of #SciFiMonth, I thought I’d share one of my favourite sci-fi books this week.
Here we go!
I’m reading fan fiction in my pyjamas when I hear a nightmarish sound: the emergency alarm. Pulling an oxygen mask out of the nearest wall panel, I sprint to the helm with my heart in my throat. There’s a glowing red message on the screen, which reads:
ASTEROID COLLISION IMMINENT
AUTOMATIC TRAJECTORY ADJUSTMENT FAILED
ENGAGE MANUAL CONTROL
Scroll down to reveal the book!
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
I loved this book.
Has anybody else read this book yet? What did you think? 🙂
