First Lines Fridays (33) – November 26, 2021

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!

Book Review – The Eye of the World

Hello, everyone! Today I’m bringing you my review of The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. I’ve wanted to read this book (and the rest of the series) for years, but it has always been a little intimidating. I’ve already struggled through one epic fantasy series, The Sword of Truth, and wasn’t really ready to commit to another. Funny enough, the same thing that made me pick up The Sword of Truth finally made me decide to take the plunge with this one too, someone turned it into a TV show. I hate watching a movie/TV adaptation without reading the book first, and I couldn’t bring myself to watch it without reading it so soon after breaking that rule for Dune, which I promise I’ll get around to reading before the next movie comes out… Anyway, the point is I finally read The Eye of the World, and I have some thoughts. Here they are!

ARC Mini Review – Forging a Nightmare

Hello, everyone! Today’s post is an extra mini review of Forging a Nightmare by Patricia A. Jackson. The cover and description pulled me in as I was browsing NetGalley, and I just couldn’t resist. I love a good story about angels and nephilim, and the horse on the cover looked absolutely demented. So, I couldn’t pass it up…maybe this is a good indicator of why my NetGalley feedback ratio has been dropping. lol.
