Book Publicity, Book Reviews, And Author Interviews

In Which First Line Friday Opens A Door

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

Psst, I found this in Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

Rules:

  • 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.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first (Goodreads Summary Link at end).

First Line(s) Friday Time!
