First Lines Friday – June 29, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing great. Let’s see which book I have picked up for this week’s First Lines Friday post.

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?

  • 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!

 

So here we go…

         I’ve always delighted in the free fall between sleep and wakefulness. Those precious few semi-conscious seconds before you open your eyes, when you catch yourself believing that your dreams might just be your reality. A moment of intense pleasure or pain, before your senses reboot and inform you who and where and what you are. For now, for just a second longer, I’m enjoying the self-medicated delusion that permits me to imagine that I could be anyone, I could be anywhere, I could be loved.

 

Ready for the reveal???

Sometimes I lie 20180629_133159

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

 

Synopsis from Goodreads:

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 
1. I’m in a coma. 
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 
3. Sometimes I lie. 
Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?
Sometimes I Lie

 

So did you like the first lines? Do tell me in the comments.

Until next time, take care and happy reading! 🙂

  1. That was a very intriguing opener. I quite like it 😉

    I featured the first line of Suzanne Rindell’s new book, Eagle and Crane on my blog but let me share the first line of the book I’m currently reading, Ghosted by Rosie Walsh.

    “Dear You,
    It’s exactly nineteen years since that luminous morning when we smiled and said good-bye. That we would see each other again was never in doubt, was it? It was a question of when, not if. In fact, it wasn’t even a question. The future might have seemed as insubstantial as the curled edge of a dream, but it unequivocally contained us both. Together.”

    Hope you liked it. Enjoy the weekend! 😀

  2. Happy Friday!😊 Oh your book sounds heartbreaking! I need to find it now!😊

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading shortly, The Hope Jar by Wanda Brunstetter….

    Tears streamed down Sara Murray’s face as she sat on the living-room floor, going through another box of her mother’s things. Mama had passed away two weeks ago after a short three-month battle with colon cancer.

    Have a great weekend,happy reading, and stay cool!😊💖
