First Lines Fridays #7

Well, it’s that time of the week again! Time for another First Lines Friday!
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?

It always feels like death. At least at first. Your muscles stretch and burn until they might rip. The bones in your hips threaten to rotate right out of their sockets. Your spine lengthens and twists into impossible shapes. The veins in your arms swell, blood pulsing though them. Your fingers tremble as you try to hold them taut but graceful, just so. Your toes jam into a pretty pink box, battering your feet with constellations of blisters and bruises. 

And the book is……

Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

This is a YA contemporary about a group of young dancers at an elite ballet school in New York who are fighting for the lead role in the school’s production of the Nutcracker ballet. It’s a suspenseful, drama-packed story filled with manipulation, betrayal, and sabotage as the girls do whatever it takes to reach the top.
I read Tiny Pretty Things a little over a year ago, and I really enjoyed it! It has recently been announced that there will be a Netflix adaptation coming out next year, which I am stoked about!
This is actually a duology, but I have yet to read the sequel. I’m excited to get my hands on a copy before the Netflix show!!

Is Tiny Pretty Things on your TBR? Have you already read it? What did you think?
Have you read the sequel?
