It’s time for another First Lines Friday! Hosted by Wandering Words!!
What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?
Here is how it works:
– Pick a book and open to the first page.
– Copy the first few lines without revealing which book it is.
– Reveal the book!
So… do these first lines entice you?
I’ve made some things for you, Constant Reader; you see them laid out before you in the moonlight. But before you look at the little handcrafted treasures I have for sale, let’s talk about them for a bit, shall we? It won’t take long. Here, sit down beside me. And do come a little closer. I don’t bite.
Except… we’ve known each other for a very long time, and I suspect you know that’s not entirely true.
Scroll down to reveal the book!
A short story collection which I picked up second hand purely because of the cover and the authors name! I really do need to get around to this one cause I bought it in December 2019, so maybe this is a contender for this years Spooky Season!! I’ve only finished one of King’s books before, and whilst I enjoyed it I did also find it quite problematic so I’m looking forward to being able to make more judgements on this, and on 11.22.63 to make up my mind about him. Have you read this one before? What did you think?

I haven’t read any King books, as I’ve also heard some problematic things ): those first lines were definitely intriguing though

I don’t think I’ll be buying anything more from him, but I’m still interested in reading this one and I hope I can still enjoy it! But I’ll definitely be keeping one wary eye out for any issues
