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!
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.
