Hello Hello! How are you?

I only have two weeks left of my internship (and that makes me sad) so I thought I would keep going with the First Lines Fridays posts every week until I’ll have time to write some Down the TBR Hole posts to alternate the two!

Another busy week for me and my knee is being a real pain, so it’s been a bit of a struggle, but looking forward to a relaxing Sunday.

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!

“Wind howled through the night, carrying a scent that would change the world. A tall Shade lifted its head and sniffed the air. He looked human except for his crimson hair and maroon eyes. He blinked in surprise. The messages had been correct: they were here.”

But what book is this quote from?

Eragon (#1 The Inheritance Cycle) by Christopher Paolini

Book Cover

One boy…

One dragon…

A world of adventure.

When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.

Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.

I bought this book, both in English and French and I’ve had them on my shelves for over a year, but I still haven’t read them. I absolutely loved the film that I watched as a child, I have some amazing memories of it, so I know I love the story, I just can’t wait to finally read it!

Have you read this book yet? What did you think of it?

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post, see you soon, stay safe,
