First Line Friday!!!

First Lines Friday 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?
Psst I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first.
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Shh, I know it is Thursday but I really want it to be Friday, Don’t you? Because. Avengers Endgame! So if we pretend and snap our fingers…. NO WAIT…. I WAS KIDDING… OH NO…

Oh well… before I dust off…

Here’s this weeks first line/lines of the book….

I was eight years old when my mother tried to kill me.
