First Lines Fridays #122

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!

So Shanna got a new job at the movie theater, we thought we’d play a fun prank on her, and now most of use are dead, and I’m really starting to feel kind of guilty about it all.

Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones


Night of the Mannequins: A Tor.com OriginalThis is one of very few horror stories that I’ve ever picked up – I’m more a mystery/thriller reader typically, but since my luck with another horror author hasn’t been the best, I thought I’d give a novella a try. And I while I still don’t know if the genre is for me, Stephen Graham Jones writing style is excellent.


Goodreads Synopsis: Stephen Graham Jones returns with Night of the Mannequins, a contemporary horror story where a teen prank goes very wrong and all hell breaks loose: is there a supernatural cause, a psychopath on the loose, or both?

 


Until next time,
