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!
Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson

Pip is not a detective anymore.
With the help of Ravi Singh, she released a true-crime podcast about the murder case they solved together last year. The podcast has gone viral, yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her.
But she will have to break that promise when someone she knows goes missing. Jamie Reynolds has disappeared, on the very same night the town hosted a memorial for the sixth-year anniversary of the deaths of Andie Bell and Sal Singh.
The police won’t do anything about it. And if they won’t look for Jamie then Pip will, uncovering more of her town’s dark secrets along the way… and this time everyone is listening. But will she find him before it’s too late?
Did that first line capture your attention? Did it make you want to read the rest of the story? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
