First Line Friday is a weekly feature that I now love to take part in.
It is hosted by Wandering Words.
What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or by its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?
Here is how it works:
– Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page.
– Copy the first few lines without giving the book away.
– Reveal the book.
I would like to use these posts to reveal books on my TBR in the hope that I can find my next great read!
Here we go!
She came in here with her brand-new shoes. Happy. I don’t know her, but I’d seen her at school.
I think her name’s Rebecca. Maybe Rachel. Something with an R. She was a freshman. A year younger than me. Maybe she’s still a freshman. I don’t know how much time has passed; I don’t know how long I’ve been here.
‘Please,’ she begs, but he doesn’t stop hurting her.
It never stops.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter
Well. I got this book from YALC this year, and I can’t believe I haven’t got to it yet.
These first lines really do make me want to read it.
Has anybody else read this book yet? What did you think? 🙂
