First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays 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!

By the time Jesse realized where they were heading, it was too late to object.


Yet again, I’m only choosing the first line of this book. I felt like it was enough to leave it there at that.

So, this book is horror. It’s by, basically, my favorite horror author who has never let me down. The author is a woman (who is amazing!).

It is…

If You See Her

I haven’t started this yet, but I’m super hyped for it because I’ve been wanting some good horror recently! Sometimes I just crave it. I’m just trying to decide where I’m going to squeeze it into my reading schedule. I have a feeling this book will need to be read in one or two sittings.

The first line in the prologue definitely caught me. Too late for what? What is Jesse objecting over? Makes me super curious about what’s going to happen next!


Talk to me!
Would you read this based on the first line?
Do you have a favorite horror author?

  1. This is such a creative idea/concept!

    I immediately went to my shelf and grabbed The Princess Diarist – Carrie Fisher

    “It was 1976…Charlie’s Angels, Laverne & Shirley and Family Feus premiered on TV.”

    Definitely think there would be a different amount of people more inclined to read this based on the first line over looking at the cover! x
