First Line Friday #1

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Wandering Words. The meme is based on the idea that instead of judging a book by its cover, author, prestige, we judge it instead by its opening line(s). I’ve seen quite a few bloggers participating lately and I love the meme’s uniqueness and creativity!

  1. Yaaaayyy!! I love seeing other people’s FLF posts! I did one as well, if you want to check it out:

    I keep meaning to read The Thousandth Floor. I have all three books, but I just had the time to get around to them. I think it’s gotten to that point now where it’s actually daunting to read them because they’re just sat on my bookshelf staring at me!

  2. I haven’t heard of this book before, but now I am super interested! I feel like I don’t read very many futuristic, Sci-Fi novels. Everything is just fantasy, fantasy, fantasy….I need to work on changing things up a bit. Thanks for a lovely post and for making my TBR list longer 🙂

    1. This is like a near-futuristic sci-fi book so it’s easy to understand and imagine the technology they describe, which made reading them a breeze! This book is full of plot twists, secrets and lies, and it’s so fun! I hope you give it a chance and enjoy it! ✨
