First Line Fridays is a feature hosted by Hoarding Books.
TGIF, everyone! Another week almost in the books!
Today my first lines are from a book I am currently reading:
If anyone told me I could bring down the president, and the Pure Movement, and that incompetent little BLEEP Morgan LeBron in a week’s time, I wouldn’t believe them. But I wouldn’t argue. I wouldn’t say a thing.
I’ve become a woman of few words.
I have been excited about reading Vox for a while! This is a different genre for me, and so far, I am completely enthralled with this book.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.
On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial–this can’t happen here. Not in America. Not to her.
This is just the beginning.
Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.
But this is not the end.
For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
Please share with me the first line(s) of the book you are currently reading! I would love to read it! Have you read Vox, or do you plan to? Happy Friday reading! ~ Jennifer THR
