You want them!

Tuesday Twist, a way to feature upcoming books and books that are already on the shelves waiting for you to grab.

The game: I give you three sentences, you tell me what one's you would read based on the first sentence.

Let's start the fun!!!

Sentences

1. Good girls don't walk with boys.
2. I'm sixteen.
3. I'd always heard that New York City was weird, but I had no idea just how weird until I got here.

The Big Reveal

1. Secret Revealed
2. Secret Revealed
3. Secret Revealed

So what would you read?!

Yeah, so I'm all about Elana's first line. :)

Lindsay N. Currie said...

Oh, definitely #1. I had no idea it was Elana's until I clicked on it. Can't wait to read that one!

KatieO said...

I recognized Elana's first line from her original query that she posted on her blog long ago... CAN'T WAIT to read it!

Deana said...

I picked 1 having no idea it was Elana's but, yup I am REALLY wanting to read that one...nailed it

Bee said...

I recognised the first one right away!
But I do love me some of that 3rd one. Weird New York. Heh.

Renae said...

Love Elana's! Her book is just fantastic!

Jessica Bell said...

Gotta go with the first. But YA isn't really my thing ... I'm guessing they're all YA, right?

Becky Taylor said...

Number 1, for sure. Now I'm going to go see what it is.

Laura M. Campbell said...

#1 and #2 are the two I would pick up and read. What a great way to entice people to pick up a new book. I love it!

Elana Johnson said...

LOL! Man, #1 is KILLER. Ha! I would totally read that. And #3 as well. And hey, I like me some sixteen year olds, too, so yeah. These are all great!

Teenage Bride said...

#1!!!! Sounds like a fun read.... sounds like me in middle school haha

Michael Di Gesu said...

One and three for sure! I haven't read Elana's book yet, but I can't wait!

Carolyn V said...

Woohoo! Have some of those on my list! =)

Jess said...

I love that I immediately recognized Elana's!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Definitely the third one, because it's actually true.

Sara McClung ♥ said...

Number 1, for sure :)

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha ha! NO QUESTION: #1 :-)

Yay, Elana! :-)

Tracey Neithercott said...

I already knew it was from Possession, but I still have to say that #1 is such a great opening line and I'd pick that one over the rest.

Kristin Rae said...

Definitely #1!

I've actually read #3, and #2 is on my list. For some reason though... I'd always thought it's not a good idea to open with "I". And considering most commenters here went for the line that didn't, I'd say that's an accurate thought. :)

Holly Ruggiero said...

#1!

K.M. Weiland said...

Definitely the first one. It presents the most interesting inherent question - that being why?, of course.

This is such a fun exercise - and not just from a reading perspective. It's also a great exercise to help writers focus on what makes a first line work.

Jolene Perry said...

First one. Easy.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

i'd read them all of course!
Of course, i've already read #1

Kimberly Franklin said...

I have Elana's book at home. Waiting to be read. No time. UGH. It's next though, I'm slowly making my way through my pile!

And I love the line from #3. LOL.

Talli Roland said...

Number three, please! :)

Jennifer Hillier said...

I'd read number three. It had me at "New York"!

Stephanie said...

#1 and 2 are already on my TBR list and I just added #3!! Thanks!!

The Golden Eagle said...

#3! I'm wondering what the character thought was so weird about NYC. And, of course, #1--got to read Elana's book! :)

Stephsco said...

It was a tie between 1 & 3. I definitely want to read Possession! #3 looks cute although I've never heard of it.

Carrie said...

I am so excited to read #1. It is preordered on my kindle.

Meredith said...

Clearly #1 is awesome. :) Can't wait to read that one!

Misha said...

I REALLY want to read 1.

:-)

Samantha Vérant said...

Ditto. I'm all about Elana's first line too. Can't freakin' wait!

Clarissa Draper said...

They all sound wonderful. I love the first line best.

KimberlyJ said...

I picked number three. Number one was a maybe and number two was no. I am new to your blog. Enjoying your posts.
