First Line Friday!

It’s Friday and therefore that means First Line Friday! I can’t believe how quickly this week has gone! Has anyone else noticed how fast this week has gone?

So, without further ado, hosted by Wandering Words, here are the rules for First Line Friday:

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!
  • Here is the first line of my chosen book:

    Mr Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No7 Saville Row, Burlington Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1814.

    Need another line?

    He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention; an enigmatical personage, about whom little was known, except that he was a polished man of the world.

    Any ideas?

    Around The World In Eighty Days by Jules Verne!

    Did you manage to guess it?

    For me it was an average read, but it was important from the view that it was another classic book ticked off my list.

    Here is my full review (and also my very first blog post!): Around The World In Eighty Days by Jules Verne
