First Line Friday
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? I saw this over on The Anatomy of a Bookworm but it was originally hosted by Wandering Words.
> 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!
Hey everyone! Happy Friday ❤ How are you all doing? 😀 Hope you enjoy this week’s First Line Friday! Let me know in the comments if you guessed the book. Here we go! 😀
Hannah calls it “A state of becoming,” but most people would probably call it chaos. The floor and work spaces are littered with leaves, stems, and thorns that haven’t made it into the giant wastebins by the tables.
This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura. Katsuyamas never quit—but seventeen-year-old CJ doesn’t even know where to start. She’s never lived up to her mom’s type A ambition, and she’s perfectly happy just helping her aunt, Hannah, at their family’s flower shop. She doesn’t buy into Hannah’s romantic ideas about flowers and their hidden meanings, but when it comes to arranging the perfect bouquet, CJ discovers a knack she never knew she had. A skill she might even be proud of. Then her mom decides to sell the shop—to the family who swindled CJ’s grandparents when thousands of Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps during WWII. Soon a rift threatens to splinter CJ’s family, friends, and their entire Northern California community; and for the first time, CJ has found something she wants to fight for.
Did anyone guess what book it was? 😀 This book sounds really good! I can’t wait to start it! It’s been sitting on my shelf for a little bit now, and I really want to get to it soon ❤ Have you read This Time Will Be Different yet? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Hope you all enjoyed! Bye guys, happy reading! x
