Hello, everyone! Today is Friday, so it’s time for some more first lines!
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!
Light slices the darkness, jerking me awake. My right eye – someone’s prying it open. Latex-gloved fingers part the lids, yanking on them like they’re stubborn window shades. There’s more light now. Harsh. Painfully bright. A penlight, aimed at my pupil.
And the book is…
I’m about halfway through this mystery/thriller, and I’m super intrigued! I never really read books like this, but I picked it up on a whim and I’m enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would.
