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
The funny thing about almost dying is that afterward everyone you expects you to jump on the happy train and take time to chase butterflies through grassy fields or see rainbows in puddles on the highway
