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!
One week down!
And, I’ve stuck with this. I’m actually very proud of myself since, usually, I completely bomb readathons like this. But, here we are.
I read 3/10 of the books this week, so I’m right on track!
