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!
“Let me tell you the story of a righteous man.”
I’m leaving it there because the next line would completely give this away. What do you think?
Here’s a hint: Greek Mythology
Yes! That myth exactly!
The book is Ariadne by Jennifer Saint!
