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? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:
- 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!

Hello hello friends! Welcome to today’s post: a First Lines Fridays.
The first in over a year, haha. my FLF posts are short in nature, so let’s dive into it! This weeks first sentence is going to contain a little more than one sentence, since there’s quite a bit to the sentence, but not enough (especially for FLF posts!).
An ax swings at my head.
The dull training weapon may not be enough to decapitate me, but I know all too well the sharp sting of metal on skin.
