This First Line Friday, Take Your Seat And Take Your Shot

This First Line Friday, get ready! It is time to grab onto the reigns, anti-up, take your seat and when opportunity knocks? Open the door!

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(s)

    Before I learned how to read, I thought knowledge was finite, dead and decaying inside old men’s skulls. Now I know the truth, that knowledge is living gold threaded through layers of dead parchment, just waiting to be mined. But while the world may be driven by knowledge, it runs on gold. The hard kind. And if my plans were to succeed, that was the kind of leverage I needed. I saw my chance, placed my wager, and took my seat at the table.


Are you ready??!

First Line Friday Summer has arrived
