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?
- 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!
Adrian crouched on the rooftop, peering at the deliver entrance behind Gatlon City Hospital. It was early morning – the sun hadn’t risen yet, though hints of lights were turning the sky from charcoal gray to pale violent. The dimness made it difficult to see anything ten stories below, beyond a couple of vans and a supply truck.
Archenemies (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer. I actually just finished reading this book earlier today and it was 500x better than the first one. Action, superpowers, blurred lines between good and evil…this was good stuff, people. There were a few items I took issue with but nothing terrible. Worth a read! A review for this book should be up here at LW within the next two weeks.
The Renegades Trilogy continues, in this fiercely awaited second installment after the New York Times-bestselling Renegades by Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles.
Time is running out.
Together, they can save the world.
But they each other’s worst nightmare.
In Renegades, Nova and Adrian (aka Insomnia and Sketch) fought the battle of their lives against the Anarchist known as the Detonator. It was a short-lived victory.
The Anarchists still have a secret weapon, one that Nova believes will protect her. The Renegades also have a strategy for overpowering the Anarchists, but both Nova and Adrian understand that it could mean the end of Gatlon City – and the world – as they know it. (from Goodreads)
