First Line Friday – 10th July

Welcome to my First Line Friday! This is my first time trying this book meme hosted by Wondering Words. Can you guess what book these opening lines are from?

The Rules

  • 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!

The Opening Line

He began his new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale, dusty air.

This Week’s First Line Was From

Name: The Maze Runner

Author: James Dashner

Published: 2010 (Makes me feel very old)

Synopsis: When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he’s not alone. He’s surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade – a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze.

Like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they came to be there – or what’s happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything – even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out

Rating: 5 out of 5.

There you go! Did you guess correctly? Have you read this book? Like and let me know in the comments.

I’m a teenager (and Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teen romance (it’s ironic I know but you can’t really go wrong with 'Eleanor and Park'). And one day, I decided to try and share some of my opinions on some great – and not so great – books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it; I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
