Wait What Day Is It? Oh Right… For The First Time In A Month… First Line Friday

For whoever needs to hear this- Today is Friday and you SHOULD NOT ingest disinfectants! There is no sanitizing the chosen first lines from the 2020 Spring/Summer Fling.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for readers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, readers were hooked on a book by the first 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

This is not a fairy tale. Certainly it is not one that has been sanitized, homogenized, or Disneyfied, bloodless in every possible sense of the word, beasts and human monsters defanged and claws clipped, children safe and the children saved, the hard truths harvested from hard lives if not lost then obscured, and purposefully so.



 

Are you ready??!
