First Line Friday

Welcome back, y’all! This week, I thought I would join in on a fun prompt called First Line Friday to get our minds off all current affairs. First Line Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Hoarding Books. I’ll be featuring the first lines from two books (one closest to me and one from a book on my TBR). See if you can guess what they are! 🙂

Book One:
“Everyone on the internet is a liar.”

Hint: This is the author’s second novel.

Book: Follow Me by Kathleen Barber

52503984. sx318 sy475

About the book:

Everyone wants new followers…until they follow you home.

Audrey Miller has an enviable new job at the Smithsonian, a body by reformer Pilates, an apartment door with a broken lock, and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to bear witness to it all. Having just moved to Washington, DC, Audrey busies herself impressing her new boss, interacting with her online fan base, and staving off a creepy upstairs neighbor with the help of the only two people she knows in town: an ex-boyfriend she can’t stay away from and a sorority sister with a high-powered job and a mysterious past.

But Audrey’s faulty door may be the least of her security concerns. Unbeknownst to her, her move has brought her within striking distance of someone who’s obsessively followed her social media presence for years—from her first WordPress blog to her most recent Instagram Story. No longer content to simply follow her carefully curated life from a distance, he consults the dark web for advice on how to make Audrey his and his alone. In his quest to win her heart, nothing is off-limits—and nothing is private.

Book Two:
“I have stopped loving you.”

Any guesses? (Hint: This book releases May 15, 2020)

Book: What Lies Between Us by John Marrs

48133801

About the book:

Nina can never forgive Maggie for what she did. And she can never let her leave.

They say every house has its secrets, and the house that Maggie and Nina have shared for so long is no different. Except that these secrets are not buried in the past.

Every other night, Maggie and Nina have dinner together. When they are finished, Nina helps Maggie back to her room in the attic, and into the heavy chain that keeps her there. Because Maggie has done things to Nina that can’t ever be forgiven, and now she is paying the price.

But there are many things about the past that Nina doesn’t know, and Maggie is going to keep it that way—even if it kills her.

Because in this house, the truth is more dangerous than lies.

Let me know the first line in the book closest to you or your favorite book in the comments, so I can add some new books to my never ending TBR! 🙂

xoxo,
Thi


#WWW Wednesday

#WWW WEDNESDAY: MARCH 18, 2020

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam on Taking on a World of Words. If you want to join in on the fun, be sure to tag the original post in the link above. Or feel free to answer the questions in the comment section below!

What are the three Ws:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

CURRENTLY READING:

I am hoping to finish Little Fires Everywhere today so that I can start watching the show! The Downstairs Girl has been a step out of my norm, but I have been thoroughly enjoying it and should have it completed by tomorrow. Lastly, Dark Matter is my most recent start and I am about a third of the way through it. It has been recommended to me by numerous people, so I have high hopes for this book!

RECENTLY FINISHED:

My most recent finish was Crown of Midnight and all I can say is if you haven’t started the Throne of Glass series yet, you definitely should! That is a solid 5 star read for me!! Oasis was a very quick read that I completed in 24 hours. It was a different style of writing for me, but I found it enjoyable and certainly peaked my interest. Overall, a 4 stars book! Then, we have The Sun Down Motel and holy moly, the creep factor is REAL! I could not read this book at night and found the paranormal aspects to be done extremely well. I think I am somewhere between 4-4.5 stars on this one!

WHAT’S NEXT:

I have a few buddy reads that I am doing next week, which includes Havenfall and Stalking Jack the Ripper. I have also been wanting to start the Folk of Air series for quite some time, so here is hoping I can knock out The Cruel Prince over the next week!

Thanks for stopping by! As I said before, feel free to join the fun on your own blog, or leave your answers in the comment section!
