First Line Friday (Week 3)

First Line Friday (Week 3)

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

Welcome to the third week of First Line Friday’s post!

First Line:

“Everyone my age remembers where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the contest.” – Ernest Cline (16)

Read my review of Ready Player One: Ready Player One: Book Review.

Synopsis from Goodreads: 

In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.

  • The book I’m sharing on my blog is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, but the book I’ll share here is the one I am currently reading called Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson: “Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave.” Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

    • Ooh I love that first line! Thanks for stopping by and sharing! I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well! xo

  • I want to read this one so bad!

    I’m featuring “Beneath a Prairie Moon” by Kim Vogel Sawyer on the blog today, but I’m going to share about the book I’m currently reading called “The Story Peddler” by Lindsay A. Franklin.

    Colored ribbons of light poured from my fingers. One strand broke free and soared above the crowd’s head, glowing golden in the afternoon sun.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading! 🙂

  • Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:

    “As a vicar’s daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so.”

  • Is this the book the movie is based on? My teens went to see the movie last weekend, and said it was excellent. I guess that means the book is also good, as the book is usually better than the movie.

    Over on my blog I’m sharing from Where Hope Begins by Catherine West … which I finished about four hours after starting it.

    I’m now reading A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden. Here’s the first line of the Prologue:

    “You and your brother are to go to the music room, close the door, and don’t come out until I say you can.”

    Have a great weekend!

  • The movie was fun (though I had to stop from singing along to the soundtrack). I’m sharing from my current read, The Backcountry Brides Romance Collection from Barbour Books, on my blog today. So here is the first line from the prologue of a book I plan to read soon, The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron:

    “Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”

    Have a great weekend!
