First Lines Friday – 11/15/19

I’ve decided to try out another of those “themed” days.  I saw a few other bloggers doing this one and it really piqued my interest.  So, I’m going to try to do this one on Fridays for a while and see how it turns out.


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?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • 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!

For once, no one was thinking of food.

From above, they were just three teenage girls, bobbing in the middle of the clear blue lake, a rowboat drifting lazily nearby as they splashed and laughed. A blonde and two brunettes, one with black hair, one with brown. Their voices rose and fell. Occasionally, one of them would slip underwater, then pop up a few yards away. Hair would be slicked back, and the swimmer might flip on her back and look up at the sky, so pure and deep that day, the thick white clouds floating slowly past on the lazy breeze.

Alright, guys.  I may have gotten carried away with how long this one is, being as it’s my first time doing this.  But I love this paragraph and how it really evokes the feelings of summer and girlfriends.

Any guesses???


I’ll give you a hint this week because I know you’re thinking hard…


I read this one recently and already posted my review…


Okay, okay, you’ve waited long enough…


Good Luck With That by Kristan Higgins

Maybe next week I’ll try a book I haven’t read yet.  I’m not sure.  I think I can have fun with this though.
