First Lines Fridays #56

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!


“I forget everything between footsteps. “Anna!” I finish shouting, snapping my mouth shut in surprise. My mind has gone blank.”

The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

by Stuart Turton

The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn HardcastleI’m finally starting this and I’m so excited. I think a mystery is the perfect thing to get me in the mood for fall, and I’ve wanted to read more adult books this year so it fits perfectly! I’ve also heard some glowing things from fellow bloggers, and that makes me even more excited. I can’t wait to get more into the story.

Goodreads Synopsis: At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed—again. She’s been murdered hundreds of times, and each day, Aiden Bishop is too late to save her. Doomed to repeat the same day over and over, Aiden’s only escape is to solve Evelyn Hardcastle’s murder and conquer the shadows of an enemy he struggles to even comprehend—but nothing and no one is quite what they seem.
