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!

Happy Friday! Time for me to highlight another book off my ridiculously sized backlist. This weeks choice is one I am incredibly excited to pick up, I’ve seen so many bloggers rave about the series and it genuinely sounds amazing.

“Books ran when they grew restless, when they grew unruly, or when they grew real. Regardless of the reason, when books ran, it was a librarians duty to catch them.”

I am here for the amount of books about books that we have been treated to recently and this title, as well as HG Parrys Uriah Heap are both high on my physical TBR. Ready to find out what it is?

Many years ago, Claire was named Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing—a neutral space in Hell where all the stories unfinished by their authors reside. Her job consists mainly of repairing and organizing books, but also of keeping an eye on restless stories that risk materializing as characters and escaping the library. When a Hero escapes from his book and goes in search of his author, Claire must track and capture him with the help of former muse and current assistant Brevity and nervous demon courier Leto.

But what should have been a simple retrieval goes horrifyingly wrong when the terrifyingly angelic Ramiel attacks them, convinced that they hold the Devil’s Bible. The text of the Devil’s Bible is a powerful weapon in the power struggle between Heaven and Hell, so it falls to the librarians to find a book with the power to reshape the boundaries between Heaven, Hell … and Earth.

  1. Aye, I actually guessed the book right even though this is still on my TBR! 😂 I read the first few pages earlier this year when I was trying to gauge my reading mood but maybe it’s time to come back to it soon. Great pick!
