First Line(s) Friday | September 24, 2021

Happy Friday! Today I am participating in First Line Friday, hosted by Reading is My Superpower, AND First Lines Friday, created by Wandering Words!

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!

“Maybe it’s easier if I introduce myself the way I best know how.”

Anyone have any guesses on what book this is? I’ll give you a few clues…

What would you ask your future self? First question: What does it feel like to kiss someone?
Xia is stuck in a lonely, boring loop. Her only escapes are Wiser, an artificial intelligence app she designed to answer questions like her future self, and a mysterious online crush she knows only as ObjectPermanence.
And then one day Xia enrolls at the Foundry, an app incubator for tech prodigies in Silicon Valley.
Suddenly, anything is possible. Flirting with Mast, a classmate also working on AI, leads to a date. Speaking up generates a vindictive nemesis intent on publicly humiliating her. And running into Mitzy Erst, Foundry alumna and Xia’s idol, could give Xia all the answers.
And then Xia receives a shocking message from ObjectPermanence: He is at the Foundry, too. Xia is torn between Mast and ObjectPermanence—just as Mitzy pushes her towards a shiny new future. Xia doesn’t have to ask Wiser to know: The right choice could transform her into the future self of her dreams, but the wrong one could destroy her.

Maybe it’s easier if I introduce myself the way I best know how.”

I’m listening to If You, Then Me by Yvonne Woon right now and LOVING IT! I’m still listening on scribd (my saved list has now surpassed 600, oops), and wow is it good! This book reminds me a lot of Screen Queens by Lori Goldstein and Speak for Yourself by Lana Wood Johnson, both books that I ABSOLUTELY ADORED! So I’m really excited about this one!

Do you have scribd? How do you listen to your audiobooks? And what have you been reading lately? Let me know in the comments and have a splendiferous day!

Do you participate in either of these memes? Let me know if you do and link your posts in the comments so I can visit! And don’t forget to have a splendiferous week!
