First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday – 10th September 2021


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!

First Lines . . .

“I was older than all my friends when I got my first tattoo. My mother loves to tell the story. I wish she wouldn’t. At two days old, you’re meant to get your birthmark, and Mum cancelled the ceremony.”

This is the first book of a trilogy which I have highlighted in several posts!

Today’s First Lines Friday book is . . .

There are no secrets in Saintstone . . .

Imagine a world where every action, your every deed, is marked on your skin for all to see. And Leora has something to hide. INK is a story about love, loyalty, and the desire to live forever. It’s a tale that gets under your skin.

The truth will get under your skin.

Did you guess this book by its first lines? Let me know in the comments!
