First Line Fridays 2/21/2020

Hey everyone! I’m back with another First Line Fridays, 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?

  • 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.
  • I emerge from the simulation with a yell. My lip stings, and when I take my hand away from it, there is blood on my fingertips. I must have bitten it during the test.

    This book is…

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the perspective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here- The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor- plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.

    1. I still haven’t read all of this. I think I read a knife scene that might have been in this book. I don’t know if I’ll read this as I don’t remember much of the Divergent trilogy and don’t want to reread it.
