Hello beautiful humans! And how is everyone doing today? This post is up a little late today because yesterday was crazy and I didn’t have time to write it and this morning got completely away from me. Unfortunately, life happens.
But I did have a book picked out for First Lines Friday!
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?
- 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!
“The palace still shook occasionally as the earth rumbled in memory, grumbled as it would deny what had happened. Bars of sunlight cast through rents in the walls made motes of dust glitter where they yet hung in the air. Scorch-marks marred the walls, the floors, the ceilings. Broad black smears crossed the blistered paints and gilt of once-bright murals, soot overlaying crumbling friezes of men and animals which seemed to have attempted to walk before the madness grew quiet.”
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
This book has been on my TBR forever. It frustrates me to no end that I can’t seem to finish it. I think the problem is that I am listening to it. The audiobook is great. I just put it down, so to speak, and can’t seem to pick it back up. I will finish it eventually! It will happen.
Also, the show just so happens to have been released today, so how could I not do this book! Me and probably everybody else is doing this book.
Have fun watching Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime!
