First Lines Friday

Oh, boy! It’s Friday!
I have family over this weekend, so as soon as I’m done with work it’s off to some last minute cleaning I go. For today’s post: First Lines Friday, featuring my very next read!

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?  

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) 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!
