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!

Ready? Here is the quote..

Good one, right?

Can you guess it?

Need a hint?

It is a stand alone novel…

This was the second book by this author…

I am excited about her next book….

Have you guessed?

Here it is!

Ta Da!

One of my favorite books, and I just love the imagery in that first line. I have been thinking a lot about rereading this one and I hope to find the time soon. I also hope we hear soon about a new book by this wonderful author.
