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? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:
- 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 (I cheat a little bit here 😉)
- Finally… reveal the book!

We’ve made it to the end of another work week. We’re supposed to be getting a massive snow storm this weekend and I am not happy about it. Mostly because I have to work, boooo. If I could just sit at home and watch it snow, I’d be all for it! Alas, I work in healthcare and, snow or not, there are always samples to run.
In an effort to get my mind of my snowy drive tomorrow, I’ve picked something lighthearted for today’s First Lines Friday. This is a book I’ve just started reading and, so far, I’m digging the main character’s vibes! And, I have to say, the first line really caught my attention. Let’s see if it does the same for you!
It was the exploding unicorn that final broke him.”
This rom-com is perfect for someone with a sweet tooth.
It just came out last year and is the first book in a new series.
It’s my first read from my 12 friends, 12 recommendations challenge!
