#FirstLinesFriday ~ First Lines That Grab Your Attention #Reading

First Lines Friday is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. (Unfortunately the links I’ve seen on other blogs tell me the site can’t be reached) What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

FirstLinesFriday

  • 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!

Even now I still dream about Brodie’s Watch, and the nightmare is always the same. I am standing in the gravel driveway and the house looms before melike a ghost ship adrift in the fog. Around my feet mist curls and slithers and it coats my skin in icy rime.

Does that draw you in?

If the walls could talk . . . they’d tell her to leave. Now.

When Ava arrives at Brodie’s Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget.

But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone. Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?
