Happy Friday, readers! 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!
“No matter which way we turned the girl, she didn’t have a face. There was hair in the front and hair in the back – only saying which was the front and which was the back was impossible.”??????????????
Ready to find out???
The book is…
Song for the Unraveling of the World is a fever dream of short stories that are perfect for the creepy vibes of spooky season. From an infant whose face was born on the back of someone else’s head to a therapist who inexplicable begins showing up in his patient’s room at night, the stories in this collection are best read with plenty of daylight lest they enter your dreams.
Am I speaking from experience? Possibly. 😂
