Last First Line Friday Of Spring And It Will End Just As It Begun— Splintered (HA! Look What I Did There)

First Line Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for readers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, readers are hooked on a book by the first lines?

Psst I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

 

Rules:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) 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-Epigraph 

Before I even give you the first line… I’d like to point out (just because I find it really interesting and it says something about the book, I hope) that there are three quotes that serve as the epigraph for the book for this week:

“The most painful state of being is remembering the future, particularly the one you’ll never have.” Soren Kierkegaard

“Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch.” Hans Christen Andersen

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” William Shakespeare

Not in the Epigraph but as a side note- according to Rose Nylund- its the cheese because Denmark refuses to use preservatives (Love Me Tender Season 4 Episode 14)
