Happy Friday! It's time for First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books.
It's time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today on First Line Friday, I'm featuring The Selection by Kiera Cass. It was released in 2013, and I've heard about it for years. I've just recently added it to my TBR pile.
And the first line is ...
When we got the letter in the post, my mother was ecstatic.
About the book...
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime.
The opportunity to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she begins to realize that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Let me know the first line of the book closest to you and then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating.
