First Line Fridays (10/11/19)

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!

Without further ado, here is the first line-

I had three brothers once. Finlei was the oldest-the brave one. Nothing frightened him, not spiders or needles or a flogging from Baba’s cane. He was the quickest of us four children, fast enough to catch a fly with only his thumb and a thimble.






Spin The Dawn by Elizabeth Lim (Amazon Link)

I happened to have this book still close at hand. The opening line doesn’t do much to reveal the contents within or the premise, but several people have read this newer release in the last couple of months. This is one I’m confident a few people will be able to guess out.

Thanks as always for checking in to this week’s First Line Fridays! Hoping everyone has a great and fun (and/or relaxing) weekend. ~ Kitty

      1. LOL- I have to make those choices more- I tend to go the ARC route to see if I can drum up interest for books that look good– but I should go more backlist… πŸ™‚
