Hello, everyone! I came across this weekly blog post while perusing WordPress last week, and I thought it’d be a fun inclusion to my weekly posts! Today also happens to be my 7th anniversary with my boyfriend, Sam. So, while I’m celebrating that, I thought I’d celebrate the first lines of a new book!
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
- Finally… reveal the book!
If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

I’m less than twenty pages into this story, and I’m already intrigued! I love the magic behind the grimoires, and I’m curious to see more characters emerge. I’ve read some great reviews of this lately, so I have high hopes!
