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.
Since it is #SciFiMonth, I want to reveal one of my favourite books from this genre.
Here we go!
The gravity stabilisers were failing again. I glanced up from my sketch pad to see globules of liquid dancing up from my drinking glass. They shimmered red, like droplets of blood, though I knew it was just cherry-flavoured nutri -drink. Dammit, that’s my protein ration for the day wasted.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne
I really enjoyed this book, and with it being a futuristic retelling of Jane Eyre, I can’t recommend it enough!
Has anybody else read this book yet? What did you think? 🙂
