First Line Friday

First Line is probably my favorite weekly post! Booklovers can share the first line or two of the book you are reading…💗I love reading your comments!!

here we go…

“The screw through Cinder’s ankle had rusted, the engraved cross marks worn to a mangled circle. Her knuckles ached from forcing the screwdriver into the joint as she struggled to loosen the screw one gritting twist after another. By the time it was extracted far enough for her to wrench free with her prosthetic steel hand, the hairline threads had been stripped clean.”

Title: Cinder( Book One of the Lunar Chronicles)

Genre: sci-fi, YA, Fantasy, Dystopia

Author: Marissa Meyer

Published: 2012


Am I the only one that struggles holding the book open while I copy the opening lines onto my IPad? Its awkward… 🙄

What are you reading this morning? Have you read Cinder or the entire series? I’d love to read your First Line…

Happy Friday friends!💗

  1. I’ve never read Cinder, Lana. My next door neighbor was named Cinder though. She moved.
    Here’s my first line from the book A Home Come True by Cheryl Harper:

    “Daydreaming about shoving a buttered dinner roll into Sarah Hillman’s mouth to keep her from laughing again was a sign that it was time to leave the party.”

    Have a nice weekend Lana. 😊

  2. Love this! My contribution from The Good Sister by Jess Ryder

    “He spread the blanket on the warm grass and laid the girls on their backs. Bending over to bathe then in his generous shadow, he carefully undid their pure white sleepsuits – so new they hadn’t even been through the wash once.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. The Women Of Retford Drive by Alretha Thomas

    “Flashing red-and-blue lights appear in my rearview mirror, and my heart sinks. Oh no, not now. Please don’t pull me over, Please. I need to get home.

    Happy Friday!

    No, I haven’t read Cinder, but I’ll put it on my list. Thank you!

  5. Lana, I have Cinder! I haven’t read it, but I need to! Can’t wait for your thoughts on it. I have my first line over on my blog from a book I recently finished, The Exes’ Revenge. I LOVED the book. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Are you going to the site? ♥️

  6. The bells sounded so clear they caused me to sit up, though intuitively I knew I could not have heard them in that sterile, cramped doctor’s office.
    “Everything okay?” Dr Kenji Fukomara peered at me over his glasses, an inquisitive gaze. It was as an interesting question given my circumstances. THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF SAM HELL, Robert Dugoni.

  7. “AT THE TIME I FIRST REALIZED I might be fictional, my weekdays were spent at a publicly funded institution on the north side of Indianapolis called White River High School, where I was required to eat lunch at a particular time—between 12:37 P.M. and 1:14 P.M.—by forces so much larger than myself that I couldn’t even begin to identify them. If those forces had given me a different lunch period, or if the tablemates who helped author my fate had chosen a differ­ent topic of conversation that September day, I would’ve met a different end—or at least a different middle.”
