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!

I have been trying to get some spooky ones for the next couple of weeks because of Halloween. This week’s quote comes from a book that I think would be a perfect fall read.

Can you guess this one?

It was one of my favorites from last fall.

It is by a pretty well known author.

Have you guessed it?


Well, here it is….

Ninth House was one of my favorite books last year. Still no time line for the next book, but I hope we won’t have to wait too long for it.
