Top 10 – Opening Lines

Opening lines……. they are the first impression you get of a book.

Here are my top 10 opening lines.

Buy links embedded in photos.


When my eyes are closed, the monsters can’t see me.
Whispers and the Roars – K. Webster


It’s crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you’ve been sober for so long.
A Love Letter to Whiskey – Kandi Steiner


I followed the crimson river flowing down between her pert breast through the lens; the deep rouge substance slowly traveling over the deep ridges of her breastbone, a pattern developing in the path of blood and leading her life force to pool on the floor around her tiny soft feet, her toes squelching in the puddle.
I See You – Ker Dukey


My grandmama once told me that love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances.
Vicious – L.J. Shen


You walk into the bookstore and you keep your hand on the door to make sure it doesn’t slam.
You – Caroline Kepnes


I stood before a table of assholes.
Bastards & Whiskey – Alta Hensley


I didn’t try to kill myself.
The Fall Before Flight – L.M. Halloran


Whenever I’d thought about the way I was going to die, I never believed I would be lucky enough for it to happen in my sleep or to have a heart attack and pass away in minutes.
Animal – Marni Mann


You didn’t see anything.
Angry God – L.J. Shen


Written words have the power to punch you in the gut and knock the air right out of you if they are delivered correctly.
Devils & Rye – Alta Hensley
