My first ever…..First Lines Friday!!!

I’ve never done this before but this month I decided to get involved with some memes…

And here is my first!

This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

Here are my first lines:

‘Shining bright, but not bright enough, the half-moon mocked me from where it sat pressed into the deep, dark sky. Even the stars had abandoned me, winking out of sight the moment I plunged into the dense woods.’

Do you recognize these first lines? Would you want to read?!

And the book is…Bloodstained Beauty by Ella Fields


Fresh out of college and headed straight for my dream job, I didn’t think things could get any better.

Then I met my dream man.

In an instant, my happy ever after had begun.

The life I’d stumbled into was beautiful, and the man I loved was perfect.

But perfection comes at a cost, and I’d slumbered through all the alarms.

Then I met my nightmare.

The man whose bright eyes held untamed darkness.

The man who disarmed me with his peculiar behavior.

The man whose cold, merciless hands shook me awake.

In an instant, questions started to dismantle my happy ever after.

But whoever said the truth would set you free was wrong.

It wasn’t going to repair the cracks in my naive heart.

It wasn’t going to caress my face with comforting hands and reassure me it was all just a dream.

No, the truth shoved me down a rabbit hole, and I landed in the lair of a real-life monster.

  1. Happy Friday!🍁

    My first lines come from Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh….

    This is it, Lyndie. Don’t blow it. Lyndie St. James stood in the hallway of Judson Music Studios, willing herself to open the door. A door that, in the past few months , had come to mean so much, thanks to constant reminders that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!🍁🙃💕
