First Lines Fridays #13

Yup, it’s that time of the week again. Time for 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?

College had always seemed so crucial, such an essential part of what measures a person’s worth and determines their future. We live in a time where people ask which school you went to before asking your last name. From an early age I was taught, trained really, to prepare for my education. It had become this necessity that required an overwhelming amount of preparation and borderline obsession. 

And the book is……

After by Anna Todd

I read this book back in July, and I honestly still don’t even know what to think of it. The relationship was super unhealthy and kind of strange and the plot was super repetitive. It was a hot mess but often so awful that it was comical and entertaining. The fact that it was originally Harry Styles fan fiction still cracks me up.
I don’t imagine that I’ll continue on with this series in the future, especially because the books are so long.
I feel like I end up being disappointed in most of the books I read that were originally Wattpad stories, so I should probably try to avoid reading them in the future.

You can see my review of After here.
