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!
My Little Friday Update First:
I can’t believe we are almost done with November! I’m so ready to decorate my house for Christmas and yes this year I will be doing it before Thanksgiving because Thanksgiving comes late in the month this year. Once I’m done dog-sitting Maya, the rambunctious husky 😅, I’ll be able to put up ornaments. If I did it now, I’m pretty sure Maya would pull the round ornament off the tree. This dog loves ball toys. She is OBSESSED with them. She even whines/sings when she hears them squeak. It cracks me up.
So here we go with the lines – –
“On a drowsy Sunday afternoon, a man in a long dark coat hesitated in front of a house on a tree-lined street.”
Yes, I’m doing a reread of The Cruel Prince and mind you I’ve read this book a few times already when it first published, then before Wicked King was published and finally, finally we will get The Queen of Nothing on Tuesday! Actually I may have to wait a bit longer for my items to ship. I bought the box set and also I think I got the special box from OwlCrate, I forget. 🤦🏻♀️ But I’m so ready to read the final book of this series!
