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! Hope you’re all having a great Friday ❤ How are you all doing? 😀 I hope you enjoy this week’s First Line Friday! Let me know in the comments if you guessed the book. Here we go! 😀
We must, by law, keep a record of the innocents we kill. And as I see it, they’re all innocents. Even the guilty. Everyone is guilty of something, and everyone still harbors a memory of childhood innocence, no matter how many layers of life wrap around it.
Thou shalt kill.
A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.
Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
Did anyone guess what book it was? 😀 I’ve seen this book around everywhere, and I think that I might be one of the only people who haven’t read it yet 🙈 Have you read Scythe yet? Let me know what you thought in the comments. Hope you all enjoyed! Bye guys, happy reading! x

I haven’t read it either, but I didn’t know much about until now. I might have to pick it up. The premise reminds me a little like the show “Dead Like Me,” in which a teenage girl must become a grim reaper. I miss the show, so I might enjoy this series. Adding it to my wishlist!
