Book Beginnings~ The Young Elites

I’ve added some additional memes to my repertoire and am linking up with Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.

This meme is a fairly simple concept, we share the first line or so from a current read. This week I’m featuring The Young Elites by Marie Lu.

The Young Elites

Four hundred have died here. I pray that yours are faring better. The city has canceled celebrations of the Spring Moons on quarantine orders, and the typical masquerades have become as scarce as the meat and eggs.

Makes you wonder if it’s war or disease….

The Start of Me and You

Of all the places to have something memorable happen to you, Oakhurst, Indiana, had to be one of the worst. Our town was too big for people to know everything about you, but just small enough for them to clench down on one defining moment like teeth clamped on prey. Won the spelling bee in the fourth grade? You are Dictionary Girl forever. Laughed a little too hard in sixth grade? You will still be Guy Who Peed His Pants as you walk across the stage to receive your diploma.
And I was the Girl Whose Boyfriend Drowned.

The beginning isn’t quite as interesting until you add that last line… it packs it with power.

A Dog's Purpose (A Dog's Purpose, #1)

 One day it occurred to me that the warm, squeaky, smelly things squirming around next to me were my brothers and sister. I was very disappointed.

This beginning is so sad to me.

Dear Aggie, I bought my girlfriend an expensive coffee machine for her birthday. First she cried, then she sold it on eBay. I don’t understand women.
Yours, Decaffeinated.

 Poor, misguided guy.

It Ends with Us

As I sit here with one foot on either side of the ledge, looking down from twelve stories above the streets of Boston, I can’t help but think about suicide.

Woah! That’s a powerful opening!
