Happy Friday everyone hope that your week was event full.
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!
Everything is quiet, as if I’m completely alone. I don’t feel scared, I like the silence. I like it better than the sound of adults fighting.
The door opposite the bathroom is open a little and I hear a noise coming from behind it. A sort of puffing, scratching sound.
I take a couple of steps closer and peer through the crack.
And now for the book that I am reading……..
Every day, a woman like Louise passes you in the street: elegant, confident, determined. But underneath, she’s struggling.
She doesn’t know her sister, Alice, has been scared of leaving the house since their mother died.
She doesn’t know when Alice babysits her little boy, Archie, he sometimes sees things he shouldn’t.
She doesn’t know Archie has a secret.
A secret that could send cracks through the heart of Louise’s carefully constructed life… You can purchase it HERE
