First Lines Fridays

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 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!

Okay I always use these Friday Lines Fridays post as a weekly update as well – so just a quick one: my sister-in-law and her family are here visiting us from upstate New York and they watched our kids so my hubby and I could go to the Phantom of the Opera that’s touring right now in Hawaii. While we were waiting for a friend to join us outside of the theater I noticed the sky was the color of cotton candy. 😍 Loved it! It’s been busy around here, I hope you all have had an awesome week. 😘

So back to the lines!

“Lara rested her elbows on the low sandstone wall, her eyes fixed on the glowing sun descending over the distant mountain peaks, nothing between here and there but scorching sand dunes, scorpions, and the occasional lizard. “






I love Danielle L. Jensen books and saw this pop up on as an audiobook and I was like, wait, she wrote another book I haven’t heard about? WHEN? WHAT? WHY is it an audiobook? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜± But I did find the ebook copy, I bought it, read it in one day and now I need book two. 😭 Review to come soon!
