First lines Friday :)


Hello book lovers! Today, I’m going to be doing the First Lines Friday. It is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.  Judge a book by its opening lines, and not by its cover! I saw geekish books do it and I asked her if I could do it. She said that it is a weekly feature that everyone could do so I’m doing it. I also invite you to do it too, it sounds really fun!

The rules:

  • Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines to capture the reader’s attention
  • Finally… reveal the book!


The first few lines:

I’m going to die tomorrow morning.

That’s what the Inquisitors tell me, anyway, when they visit my cell. I’ve been in here for weeks-I know this only because I’ve been counting the number of times my meals come.

One day. Two days.

Four days. A week.

Two weeks.


I stopped counting after that. The hours run together, an endless train of nothingness, filled with different slants of light and the shiver of cold, wet stone, the pieces of my sanity, the disjointed whispers of my thoughts. But tomorrow, my time ends. They’re going to burn me at the stake in the central market square, for all to see. The Inquisitors tell me a crowd has already begun to gather outside.

Can you guess which book it is?? Scroll down to discover which book it is…

The book is:

THE YOUNG ELITES BY MARIE LU!!!! Ok so let’s be honest, if you did read this book, it was an easy guess. Inquisitors? I only heard this in the young elites and the first line is really hard to forget so in my opinion, it was really easy.

Honestly, I have no idea why I chose this book… If you haven’t read it yet, I recommend it because it was very different from the other YA books. In this one, the protagonist is very…special. She has a dark side that isn’t like the other characters. It is a must read. I actually gave this book 3.5 stars. Maybe one day I’ll write a review on the book….maybe….one day.

The plot: (from Goodreads)

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Well, that was very fun!!! Hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to comment if you guessed it or not. Have you read it or not and what are your thoughts?

Have a nice day!
