First Lines Friday #1| #FirstLinesFridays


First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature 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?” The graphic above is also taken from Wandering Words.

The post inspiring me to join in on the fun and where I saw this feature for the first time was this one by Halei @ DegenerateReads.

The Rules

  1. Pick a book off your shelf and open the first page
  2. Write down the first few lines, without giving away anything else about the book yet
  3. Reveal the book!

The First Few Lines

This is the part where I die.

Don’t panic; it isn’t unexpected. The sea is prideful, after all, and Death never goes back on a deal.

The Reveal

Reveal the book!

The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
2015 | ~400 pages | YA, Contemporary, Romance
