First Lines Friday

Hello, sweet peas!

It’s time for First Lines Friday again. 😀

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!

Mountains always have secrets.

Okay, I have to admit, this one is rather hard. It could be anything. Do you want a hint?

(Psssst. It has to do with dragons.)

And? Does it sound familiar?

It’s Dragon Mountain by Katie & Kevin Tsang!

When 12-year-old Billy Chan finds out his parents are sending him to a summer camp in middle-of-nowhere China he doesn’t know what to expect. There he meets fellow campers Dylan, Charlotte and Ling-Fei and together they stumble upon an age-old secret: four powerful warrior dragons, hidden deep within the mountain behind the camp. They have been trapped since an epic battle with the Dragon of Death and need the children’s help to set them free before terrible evil is unleashed on the earth. Billy and his friends must set off on a dangerous adventure that will take them to the heart of the Dragon Realm. But can they save the dragon and human worlds from destruction?

It’s also one of my current reads. I was so hyped to read it and now it’s finally released! Yay!

Did you guess my book? Have you read it yet?

  1. Oh, that is an interesting first sentence! I have heard a lot about the book, see it pop up on Twitter a lot. Kind of curious about it, how are you liking it?

    • So far I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed? I wanted to get if from Netgalley and wasn’t approved and I think I hyped myself up too much… But it’s not bad either. I love the atmosphere it has. I think I can say more, when I’m done with it.
