First lines Friday // it’s a first

 Hello, guys!

I have decided to join “First Lines Friday” for the first time today and see how it works out. It also gave me my first grey hairs and wrinkles from frustration because I cannot figure out how to hide the spoilers with the new WordPress block editor. Arrrg. (If one of you knows how to do it, please put me out of my misery.)

Anyway, 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!

Sounds easy, right? Let’s try!

It was early morning and Arthur was already running late for school when the gnomes exploded.

So? Any idea?

It’s Wonderscape by Jennifer Bell!

When Arthur, Ren and Cecily investigate a mysterious explosion on their way to school, they find themselves trapped aboard The Principia – a scientific research ship sailing through hazardous waters, captained by one Isaac Newton. Lost in the year 2473 in the Wonderscape, an epic in-reality adventure game, they must call on the help of some unlikely historical heroes, to play their way home before time runs out.

I’m really looking forward to read this. Not only is the cover insanely gorgeous – which shouldn’t be that much of an incentive but it has to be said – but it also sounds really interesting and special and fun. I can’t wait to get started.
