First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for readers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, author, or prestige. We try to hook Readers with the first line instead.

- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, or favorite read (Hello, close your eyes and pick a book) and open to the first page.
