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!
I’ve decided to go back to my old First Lines Friday and focus on books on my TBR that I need/want to pick up. This idea came from Susan over at NovelLives and it worked super well last time… so keep your fingers crossed. BTW you should totally go and check her blog out because she posts some top notch content.

I loved Mass ACOTAR and TOG series so I was super excited when I found out she was taking on one of the DC Icons series. I’m not sure why I havent got round to picking this one up yet, but I will definitely be picking it up ASAP. Have you read this yet? Let me know your thoughts.
