Welcome to day 11 of blogmas lovelies!
Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion @Rose City Reader. The idea is to share the beginning of a book.
You pick up a book and read the first few sentences. Will it hook you straight away? Does it have significant meaning that will be revealed later? Good. Book. Beginnings. Are. Crucial.
Suzanne Collins has such a special and unique writing style. Coriolanus Snow is one of the most famous villains in the book community and when it was announced that there was a prequel about his days at the Academy I did not expect the book to begin this way but I was hooked. These first few lines are crucial to the story and how Snow sees himself and others. We expect opulence and extravagance from his young days and the author takes a completely different direction and I loved it; it made me buy the book immediately and I really enjoyed it. (You can see my mini review for the book here).
Do these first lines make you want to read the book? Have you read it? Let me know in the comments!
