It’s almost the end of the month and ??? I just don’t know where the month has gone. I’ll try and cram as much reading into this weekend! I miss reading and having time to read, but at the same time I’m glad to be where I am right now, job-wise.
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!
Anna Latham tried to disappear into the passenger seat.
She hadn’t realized how much of her confidence had been tied to having Charles beside her. She’d only known him a day and a half, and he’d changed her world… at least while he was next to her.
Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.
Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.
It is recommended you read the prequel “Alpha & Omega” before reading Cry Wolf.
See, I read that last line but just didn’t heed it. Should I have?? Or can I just forge on with this book? I’m liking it so far but I am definitely feeling lost, especially since the book opens with Anna and Charles already knowing each other.
Man I just answered my own question. I really should read the prequel. (Or just read books from your TBR Nina, geez!!!)
