First Lines Friday: April 3

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?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • 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!


FIRST LINE(S)

I hate First Friday. It makes the village crowded, and now, in the heat of high summer, that’s the last thing anyone wants.


Do you recognize the book?

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.


It’s a weird feeling when it seems like no time has gone by and yet it feels like I haven’t been outside in a year. Do you know what I mean? Anyway, I’m going to read Red Queen this month and I’m really excited to start it. What have you been reading? Tell me everything in the comments.

Xoxo,

Andie

      1. Hey, no worries at all. I had time this week because my daughter was on spring break and I didn’t have to share my computer. We’ve been sharing for the past month since school got moved to distance learning, so I actually haven’t been on as much commenting until this past week. We will see how it goes from here.
