Surprise, surprise, I decided to do more of blog meme! 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? Wouldn’t it be more fair, though? Anyway, here’s the rules if you want to join:
A text from a blocked number read: If you want to see your baby again come out to Service Road 705. There’s a cabin at the very end. She found the ramshackle but serviceable structure. She didn’t enter. Behind it about an eight of a mile was the root cellar. That’s where she was now — where he’d brought Isabel earlier.
This book is my current read and it’s been pretty good so far! I wouldn’t say the first lines do all the justice for this book, like, sure… it’s a bit creepy and mysterious and all. But I don’t it’s intriguing enough. Anyway, we’ll see about that in a couple days once I finished this book.
What do you think? Would you continue to read the book based on those first lines?
