Happy Friday, everyone! First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? Wouldn’t it be more fair, though? Anyway, here’s the rules if you want to join:
There was a boy in her room. Cath looked up at the number painted on the door, then down at the room assignment in her hand. ‘Pound Hall, 913’. This was definitely room 913, but maybe it wasn’t Pound Hall — all these dormitories looked alike, like public housing towers for the elderly. Maybe Cath should try to catch her dad before he brought up the rest of her boxes.
This book is one of my current read and I’m pretty sure everyone’s already read it but me. Oh well. It’s also my first time to read Rainbow Rowell’s work. I owned Eleanor and Park in paperback, but I haven’t got a chance to read it yet (the guilt!). Anyway, I’m still on Chapter 6 yet it has been really fun! I can totally relate to Cath because a lot of her fear of little things are similar to mine. I’m hoping I can finish this book by this weekend, but we’ll see!
What do you think? Would you continue to read the book based on those first lines?
