First Lines Fridays #6

Hey. hey, hey!! Happy Friday, everybody! I hope you’ve been having an excellent week so far. Today I’m back with another First Lines Friday… hope you enjoy!! 😉

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.
What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

“Would the defendant please rise.”
This wasn’t an actual question, even though it sounded like one. I’d noticed that the first time we’d all been assembled here, in this way. Instead, it was a command, an order. The “please” was just for show.

And the book is……

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen


I’m a big fan of Sarah Dessen’s books (though I’ve still only read a little over half of them – I can’t keep up with her), but I think this one is definitely one of my favourites! I felt a really strong connection with the protagonist, Sydney. Just like any other Sarah Dessen novel, Saint Anything had a fun, charismatic group of characters whose friends group I yearned to be a part of. I also particularly enjoyed the setting of this one, as many scenes took place in a pizza shop or delivering pizzas.
It’s a great story that definitely deserves a shot from any fan of contemporary romance that packs a punch.

Have you read Saint Anything? Is it on your TBR?
