Happy Friday bookish people! Today I am bringing you the second round of my newest series Friday First and Lasts. The series in which I take the first sentence of one book and combine it with the last series of another book to see what we get.
For this round I will be giving you three sets of first and lasts, the books up first are:
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik and Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder by T A Willberg
“I decided that Orion Lake needed to die after the second time he saved my life/ however long it took” – This sentence actually turned out really well. It creates a very dramatic line.
Up next are the books:
Capturing The Devil by Kerri Maniscalco and Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
“A blast of frigid air greeted me as I unlatched the carriage door and stumbled onto the street/filled with thoughtless joy I turned Priestbane to follow” – this one doesn’t work quite as well as the first set, but it still works and has a good flow to it.
The final set for today are from the books:
The Christmas Murder Game by Alexandra Benedict and The Gilded Cage by Lynette Noni
“Snow is falling/and then she would be dead” – This is the one that probably works the least out of the three sets but it has an intense and sinister ring to it that I quite like.
That’s it for today, I hope you all enjoyed it! If you’ve got any good ones, please leave them in the comments below, on my Instagram @the_blind_scribe or on Twitter @oliviatempleto6.
