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 *cough*)
- Finally… reveal the book!
If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!
It’s time for another First Lines Friday! Today, I’m featuring a book that I’ve been wanting to read for awhile now. I’ve already started it and can confirm that the first line immediately captured my interest. This is a book that I know, now that I don’t have any books I need to finish for tours, will bogart all of my attention until I’ve finished it.
Now, let’s see if the first line piques your interest as much as it did mine!
“You think you’d know what a killer sounds like.”
This is a young adult thriller with a blood red cover.
It is the second book in a series.
It has a podcast element which is something I love in books!
