Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Book Quotes that Fit X Theme’ so, for the last week of Wyrd & Wonder (boohoo!), I’m taking inspiration from Malia @ BookParadise’s Try a Chapter Tag.
I’ve been very slumpy this year, and so far this month I’ve literally read one book, so I thought I’d share the first lines from some of the fantasy books on my TBR to see if any of them interest me enough to pick them up!
The police offer’s body goes blurry, then sharpens again.Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
I shouldn’t have been surprised that fairies exist.Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko
Though nearly barren of water, the deserts of Akhia are a well-spring of secrets.Turning Darkness into Light by Marie Brennan
The library at Osthorne Academy for Young Mages was silent save for the whisper of the books in the Theoretical Magic section.Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey
Night fell as death rode into the Great Library of Summershall.Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
So far magic school was total rubbish.In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan
The beast raged; it punctured the air with its spite.The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
It is said, in Imardin, that the wind has a soul, and that it wails through the narrow city streets because it is grieved by what it finds there.The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan
See this house perched not so far from the granite cliffs of Hob’s Head?All the Murmuring Bones by A.G. Slatter
Zhongli village lay flattened under the sun like a defeated dog that has given up on finding shade.She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan
I love the first line of In Other Lands, but the opening lines that are intriguing me most at the moment are from Legendborn, Magic for Liars and All the Murmuring Bones. Let me know which one you think I should try this week, because I have no idea what I’m in the mood to read right now!
