First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday – 17th September 2021

Hello!

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 . . .

“‘Honestly Mrs Hadley,’ said Meggie McGregor, wiping her eyes. ‘That sense of humour of yours will be the death of me yet!'”

I think that today’s book is very fitting, considering my recent blog challenge!

Today’s First Lines Friday book is . . .

“So you are going to kill me . . . You set me up so your friends could capture me. You’re real good at letting others do your dirty work . . .”

Sephy and Callum have been friends since early childhood. And that’s as far as it can go. Because theirs is a world full of prejudice, racism, distrust and mounting terrorist violence.

Despite all this, a romance builds between the two friends.

But this is a love that could lead both of them into terrible danger . . .

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

Thank you for reading this post.
