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!

Today’s First Lines Friday book is . . .
Sorry I made you marry a horse.
Your father-in-law is trying to kill me.
This is the story of a real Queen of England. Not the nasty version where her head is chopped off, but the one with lots of humour, romance, and galloping around. Lady Jane must keep her wits to survive, but it’s tricky when your downfall is being plotted and your new husband forgets to tell you that he turns into a horse.
Did you guess this book by its first lines? Let me know in the comments!
