Riddle Me This- Can you Guess? It is time for First Line 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?

Psst I found this at Becky’s Book Blog. Please go check her out!

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be a current read, ARC, TBR, favorite read, close your eyes and pick a book) 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!



Excerpt from Babies Killing Babies:
Profiles of Preteen and Teen Murders
By Jane E. Woods (pg. 10)

Some children are just born bad, plain and simple. These are the children that don’t live up to statistics. One cannot blame their surroundings or upbringings for their behavior. It’s a scientifically proven inheritable trait. These children are sociological phenomena.

Ok are you ready ?????????????

What are some of your favorite first lines or the first lines of the closest book to your or your next TBR or ARC?
