Firsts 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!


Sierra Madre Oriental. Mexico. 2011.

When Mikey saw the roadblock up ahead, he knew there was going to be trouble.

Mikey looked like your average stoner kid, fresh of out college. Shoulder-length hair. Wispy beard. Surf shorts and a Motorpsycho T-shirt. Sandals.

But appearances can be deceptive. Mikey had never smoked a joint or snorted a line. He’d drunk a single bottle of Coors Light on his sixteenth birthday and not touched the stuff since.
