First Lines Friday is run by WanderingWords, click the link to learn more!

The basic premise is to hook a reader in with the first line of a book, instead of the cover! For this week I chose a book that I was initially really uncertain about. See if you can guess the book/author before scrolling down to see the answer!

It’s funny, Vasher though, how many things begin with my getting thrown into prison.

Any guesses?

Know who Vasher is?

dsc02080This first line comes from Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. It was the first Sanderson book I ever read and it spurned an absolute love affair with high fantasy. The books in his Cosmere universe are some of my all-time favorites, and I highly recommend starting with this one, if you have never read one of his books. Poor Vasher does so often find himself in trouble.

Have you read Warbreaker? Let me know what you thought in the comments!
