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 think I have a good one here. Are you ready?
Good one, right!?
Can you guess?
It’s a new book by a popular MG author…
His books always make me laugh, sometimes loudly!
Do you know it?
Ok, last one….
And the book is…..
Alas, the last book is finally in my hands! I am excited to read it, but sad that it is the end. But at least I will know that I will probably be laughing almost the whole time!
