First Lines Friday is hosted by Wandering Words for book lovers!
The Rules are:
- 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!
I trace the outline of my sister’s drawing, lungs molded from a sea of flowers. Petals burst out from every edge of the twin ovals in soft pinks, deep whites, even heather blues, but somehow each one has a uniqueness, a vibrancy that feels like it’ll bloom forever.
It is Five Feet Apart! I am so obsessed with this book at the moment. I chose the first two lines instead of just the one, because its written so beautifully.
If you haven’t read Five Feet Apart yet, I highly recommend it – just make sure you have tissues.
