✏️ #FirstLineFriday: Love the Way You Lie

Dark Romance is my most read genre. I like it because it’s different from my real life. I don’t want to pick up a book and read about characters in safe, normal life. That’s boring lol! I want variety. I want to be lost in a different world.

Just look at the first line of this book. Isn’t that familiar? Life is not all rainbow farting unicorn. Sometimes you get thrown into the deep end and you have to adept in order to survive. It’s sink or swim and sometimes you have to do things you are not proud of. I’d say be proud that you survived because that alone is an accomplishment.

P.S.: This series is about strippers and I think strippers have interesting life lol!

Love the Way You Lie (Stripped #1) by Skye Warren
Amazon  |  Goodreads  |  Review

A dark romance about the lies that lead us down…

I’ll do anything to get safe, even if that means working at the scariest club in town.

I’ll do anything to stay hidden, even if it means taking off my clothes for strangers.

I’ll do anything to be free. Except give him up. When he looks at me, I forget why I can’t have him. He’s beautiful and scarred. His body fits mine, filling the places where I’m hollow, rough where I am soft.

He’s the one man who wants to help me, but he has his own agenda. He has questions I can’t answer. What are you afraid of?


✏️ #FirstLineFriday: The Matriarch

Nice way to get attention with that first line isn’t it? Haha!
I haven’t read this one yet, but definitely intrigued with the superhero/vigilante theme. I won this signed copy from the author teaser contest.

The Matriarch (The Matriarch Trilogy #1) by Sloane Howell
Amazon  |  Goodreads

Betrayal is easy, sex is a weapon, and information is power. Maggie Madison sits in the lofty towers of her city during the day, but at night she lurks the seedy underbelly, looking to snare the man who stole her innocence. Her simple quest becomes complicated when she meets a man who is as light as she is dark, as straightforward as she is deceptive. When a villain rises and sets her world alight, she must weigh her need for revenge against the good of the city she vowed to protect.

✏️ #FirstLineFriday: Gulliver’s Travels

I like collecting classic books but I haven’t read many including this one. One, I wasn’t a reader when I was in school. I don’t think I’ve finished any of the assigned books haha! Two, the school syllabus usually involved local or other Asian literature. I hope one day I will have time to read some of the classic books I’ve acquired since I became an avid reader 😁.

Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
Amazon |  Goodreads

Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters – with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos – give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behaviour. Swift’s savage satire view mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves.
