Happy Friday everyone hope that your week was event full. My week was a hectic and Friday could not come fast enough and I am still trying to get over this nasty flu bug, which just doesn’t want to leave me.
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!
She wasn’t at the Halloween block party. Neither were any of her friends since their parents had grounded them all. None of the teenagers living in the neighborhood of Shadow Hill were present when it happened, but they all heard screams in the night. At first Jazmine thought, it was just the grown-ups partying, yelling, and maybe finally have too much to drink, maybe even fighting as usual. But as the screams didn’t die down, she realized this was a lot more serious.
“Oh, dear God!” someone exclaimed.
Have you read it, if so what were your thoughts, I would love to hear them.
Happy reading everyone.
