First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

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!

This happened in 1932, when the state penitentiary was still at Cold Mountain. And the electric chair was there, too, of course.

What’s better than ending a month with a classic? Not, you know, a classic that’s hundreds of years old, but some classic horror by a favorite author. I think it could be pretty obvious what this book is if you all remember my TBR, but it is…



The Green Mile

This isn’t the cover I’m reading from, but I do like it. And I’m excited for this book because, I mean, it’s classic! And I’ve been meaning to read it for about 8 years now. That’s how far behind I am with my TBR if you haven’t noticed before.
