First Line Friday {6}

First Line Friday {6}

Happy Friday friends! I am back again for another First Line Friday. This one is an oldy but a goodie. I am throwing it way back to a book that I read throughout the beginning of my high school years. A book series that I am pretty sure every single one of my friends read.

First Line:

The funny thing about facing imminent death is that it snaps everything else into perspective.

Angel Experiment by James Patterson   (Maximum Ride #1)


This is a book that I read sooo long ago, but it was one of my favorite series ever, so I thought I would share it with you guys. If you haven’t read this book, what are you waiting for?

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Six unforgettable kids — with no families, no homes — are running for their lives. Max Ride and her best friends have the ability to fly. And that’s just the beginning of their amazing powers. But they don’t know where they come from, who’s hunting them, why they are different from all other humans… and if they’re meant to save mankind — or destroy it.

Other facts about The Angel Experiment:

413 pages
Published May 5th 2006 by Grand Central Publishing

Want to join in?

  • 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!


Thanks for reading this First Line!! Have an amazing Friday!


Sarah June

  • Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Rachel Fordham’s debut book “The Hope of Azure Springs.” I hope you get the chance to check it out! Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter Five.
    “Em stood on the front porch, quietly looking heavenward. The sun had yet to rise.”

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  • Maximum Ride was one of my favorites when I was younger too!

    I’m sharing about “The Hawaiian Discovery” by Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter over on my blog today. Since I’m currently reading a YA Christian fantasy novel called “Choice of the Mighty” by Kenyon T. Henry, I’ll share my first line from there.

    “He walked alone down the sidewalk.”

    Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

  • I just realized that I have and have read 3 of the old books shown in your photo!!!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Hidden Currents by Christy Barritt:

    “At the sound of a footfall behind her, Cady Matthews’s back muscles tightened faster than a mousetrap snapping its prey.”

  • Your blog is totally adorable, Sarah! I was busy devouring historical romance in high school (not that much has changed except now I love contemporary and suspense too)!

    I just finished reading Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan…
    Guilty. That’s the only possible verdict.

  • I don’t think I’ve ever read a James Patterson novel!

    I’m sharing from Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano on my blog today. But I’m reading Bookishly Ever After by Sarah Monzon, the final novella in the Timeless Love collection I featured a couple of weeks ago. It’s ticking all the boxes for me—contemporary romance, first person point of view, a bookish heroine, and a good friend who might become more … Anyway, here’s the first line:

    The hunter had become the hunted. Poetic? Not really.

  • The book I’m sharing on my blog is Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey but here I’ll share the book I’m currently reading The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham: “‘She dead?’ Em heard a man’s voice from somewhere above her.” Hope you have a great weekend!
