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
‘DO YOU WANT a drink?’ Lee called from the kitchen as I shut the front door. ‘No, thanks,’ I called back. ‘I’ll head on up to your room.’ ‘Sure thing.’ I’d never stop wondering at how big Lee Flynn’s house was; it was practically a mansion. There was a room downstairs complete with a fifty-inch TV and surround sound, not to mention the pool table, and the (heated) pool outside. Even though I treated it like a second home the only place I felt really, really comfortable was in Lee’s bedroom. I opened the door and saw the sunlight spilling in through the open doors leading to his small balcony. Posters of bands covered the walls, his drum kit sat in the corner next to a guitar, and his Apple Mac was proudly displayed on a smart mahogany desk that matched the rest of the furniture.
And The Book Is…
The reason why I chose this book is that as the book After by Anna Todd I didn’t like it and I wonder if the movies are worth watching. So, please if you watched After or The Kissing Booth, can you let me know your opinion?
