First Lines Friday #1

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 (or a few) 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!


This seems like a fun meme, so I’ve been thinking I’ll give it a go! Let’s see what we think in a few weeks. And feel free to let me know in the comments if there are memes or tags you’d like to see me complete in future. Thanks for reading, Wayfarers!


i liked being ridden, and offered the chance to pretty much every guy in Video II. i guess it made me feel as if I had something to contribute to the group.

the first time I saw a redwood, I had a brand new feeling – like discovering a new color you’ve never seen before, or smelling snow for the first time if you were raised in a world without cold. mom and I were driving up Highway 101 in a mostly good mood.

saint Jude was the patron saint of impossible causes. my foster brother took his namesake very seriously.
