First Line Friday! (22)

Source

First Line Friday is a feature created by me, where I post five first lines from some books that I have on my TBR pile. You guys then get to vote, based on the first lines, for the book that I will read next! 

I’ll post the first line and nothing else.  This way you pick my next read based on the first line only.  I’ll reveal what book you chose next Friday when I review it.  Make sense?

Also, I’m sure some of you might recognize the books but please don’t mention what they are!  

First line #1:

I was probably the first kid ever excited for summer to be over.

First line #2:

There are rumors the day Emily Beam arrives at the Amherst School for Girls–in January, halfway through her junior year. 

First line #3:

“You dropped something.”

First line #4:

Nadia and I scramble down the hill at the edge of school property right as the morning’s final late bell rings behind us.

First line #5:

It was clear that beer didn’t make my boyfriend a deep thinker.

Which first line do you vote for?

    I was torn between 1 and 2. 3 doesn’t really grab me without knowing anything else (somehow I imagine it’s schoolbooks that dropped, hahaha), 4 is the same, I’m not really motivated, 5 was quite funny, but I only didn’t pick that because of 1 and 2.

    1 interested me because I want to know why there is such emotion from this character!! it is looking forward to something after summer, or kind of something that happened during summer is over… maybe?

    2 hooked me because the word ‘rumours’ makes me think of a scandal. Like a scandal at the school, or maybe Emily Bean IS the scandal… who knows?!!!

    Anywhoo, I think I’m going with… 1.
