 ARC Review | Winterglass by Benjanun Sriduangkaew

First Lines Fridays {6}

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!

Bonjour mes amis! Comment ça va?

So Halloween is just a couple of days away and I am so ready to get my spook on! To celebrate this grave occasion, Jessica over at Reading With Jessica came up with the Haunted Halloween Hop. There are 10 of us participating and we’ll be spreading our posts over 10 days from the 22nd to the 31st, so make sure you check out them out! Each post will be Halloween themed so be prepared for some RIPeting reads!
