First Line Fridays 1/3/20

Hey everyone! Today I’m coming to you with another First Line Friday. 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.
  • A sex tape. A pregnancy scare. Two cheating scandals. And that’s just this weeks update.

    Daughter of the Pirate King review

    There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for. Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map- the key to a legendary treasure trove- seventeen year old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured be her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship. More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing between her and her map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

    First things first, i need to read the sequel like now. I really enjoyed this. It says it’s for fans of Pirates of the Caribbean, which I love soooo much. Alosa is very much Jack Sparrow and Riden gives me Will Turner vibes.

    I gave this book 4/5 stars. I took off a star because I felt the plot was a little lacking and certain characters didn’t live up to how I imagined them to be. Overall though I thoroughly enjoyed majority of the characters, especially Alosa. She just genuinely made me happy, and her interactions with Riden were some of my favorite parts.

    Small review because I’m not feeling too good, but if you have read this and it’s sequel let me know in the comments. Did you like it? Did you not like it? Is the sequel better or not? I’m excited to hear your thoughts. As always, happy reading!
