First Lines Friday – 26 June

Happy Friday book lovers! We’re back with another First Lines Friday, 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? Here are the rules:

  • 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!

First lines:

“Aleja was a girl so hungry for adventure that sometimes she found herself in strange places.

Do you recognize the book these first lines come from?

*drumroll please!*

Aleja is a dreamer who longs for a life of magic and adventure. So when a mysterious ship arrives in her Spanish harbour city, crewed by a band of ruthless women, Aleja knows it’s sailed right out of a legend.

And it wants her.

But life aboard the Ship of Shadows is more than even she bargained for. It will take all of Aleja’s strength and skill to gain the trust of her fellow pirates – and discover what they are risking everything to find . . .

Please just take a moment to appreciate this gorgeous cover! The Ship of Shadows not only looks like a lot of fun but I’m liking the sound of that synopsis! I’ll be reading this MG fantasy for a blog tour and I can’t wait to dive into it!

Have you read The Ship of Shadows or is it on your TBR?

    • I don’t recall seeing these type of MG covers before but I’m here for it 😀 It’s so gorgeous 😍 I’m so glad this was put on my radar. I hope the content is just as lovely as the cover is! Lol
