Top Ten Tuesday: killer Opening Lines

Top Ten (1)

Hey guys! Back with a Top Ten Tuesday article, it has been a while (I was not super inspired by previous prompts!) but this week’s theme really inspired me: Opening lines! I love a good opening line, that can hook me into a book right away! And looking for which ones I could choose for the challenge, I realize I do have a type of favorite opening lines… I will let you discover it :p Also, I could not choose only 10 opening lines, so you will get 15!

Book reviews #10: The dream thieves

Processed with VSCO with  presetNow that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after…

The dream thief

Back with the English reviews! And not with any review, but a Maggie Stiefvater one! I’ve been in love with her since I read the Raven boys book. Her writing and humor caught my attention, and the characters she created got my heart. Plus, Blue’s family is the one I dream to have. All this feminine vibe, kinda crazy but super close, that’s my dream life! Tarot coming as a perk 🙂

I found all that and more in this second book. It was darker, as Ronan took a more important place, as Adam got lost in the deal he made, and as treasure hunters come into play. It was darker and even more addictive. Getting to know more the characters… well you just love them even more, want to live the adventure with them. That’s what I also love with Maggie Stiefvater: she makes you feel like you are part of it. She has magic in her, and she shares it with us.

If you want some of that magic too, read her books!!

See you for a cup!

Elise

PS: I could not resist sharing this other quote from the book with you:

 » A secret is a strange thing.
There are three kinds of secrets. One is the sort everyone knows about, the sort you need at least two people for. One to keep it. One to never know. The second is a harder kind of secret: one you keep from yourself. Every day, thousands of confessions are kept from their would-be confessors, none of these people knowing that their never-admitted secrets all boil down to the same three words: I am afraid.
And then there is the third kind of secret, the most hidden kind. A secret no one knows about. Perhaps it was known once, but was taken to the grave. Or maybe it is a useless mystery, arcane and lonely, unfound because no one ever looked for it.
Sometimes, some rare times, a secret stays undiscovered because it is something too big for the mind to hold. It is too strange, too vast, too terrifying to contemplate.
All of us have secrets in our lives. We’re keepers or keptfrom, players or played. Secrets and cockroaches — that’s what will be left at the end of it all.«
