Happy Friday y’all! Man, what a week! For some reason, this week has felt so long! And I don’t even have a real, like fun update for y’all because even though it’s felt really long, I can’t, for the life of me, remember anything that’s really happened this week! What the heck.
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!
Now, onto the line!
“The tropical rain fell in drenching sheets, hammering the corrugated roof of the clinic building, roaring down the metal gutters, splashing on the ground in a torrent. Roberta Carter sighed, and stared out the window. From the clinic, she could hardly see the beach or the ocean beyond, cloaked in low fog.”
It’s a hard one this week!
It’s Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton! I’m obsessed with these movies, but I haven’t read the books yet, so when I realized that my family actually owned the first book, I had to add it to my TBR pile! Here’s the summary from Goodreads: An astonishing technique for recovering and cloning dinosaur DNA has been discovered. Now humankind’s most thrilling fantasies have come true. Creatures extinct for eons roam Jurassic Park with their awesome presence and profound mystery, and all the world can visit them—for a price. Until something goes wrong. . . .
Have y’all read Jurassic Park/are y’all obsessed with the movies like I am? Let me know what you think about all the dinosaurs!
