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
There were literally three separate couples sitting around the fire
making out, like some sort of organised kissing orgy, and half of me
was like, ew, and the other half was like, Wow, I sure do wish that
To be fair, it’s probably what I should have expected from our prom
afterparty. I don’t go to parties very often. I hadn’t been aware this
actually was the culture.
I retreated from the firepit and headed back towards Hattie
Jorgensen’s giant country house, holding up my prom dress in one
hand so I didn’t trip, and dropped Pip a message.
I picked Loveless to be this week lines because it is a 2020 release compelling read with an aces main character and yes I do give it five stars.
