[Luna Station Quarterly] More Opening Lines: Girl, Serpent, Thorn; Romanov; Wilder Girls

Happy Friday, y’all!

If you’re new here, let me introduce this series. This mini-review will include the first line and—depending on if I’ve read the book or not—either my opinion on how this first line sums up the novel or my first impression and predictions of what the vibe of the story will be. This week, I’m looking at Girl, Serpent, Thorn, Romanov, and Wilder Girls. I haven’t read any of these, so I’m excited to give my first impressions!

I hope you enjoy this week’s installment – click here to read!
