First Lines Friday || February 14th



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!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Mrs. Spencer's scones are legendary. Their ingredients are mixed in such perfect harmony that eating them obliterates all the obstacles to love that exist with one's soul.
