1st Line/1st Paragraph

I’m linking up today with Vicki @ I’d Rather Be At The Beach who hosts a meme every Tuesday to share the First Chapter/First Paragraph of the book you are currently reading.

I’m pleased to share the first line and first full paragraph of The Lost For Words Bookshop. I just finished this book late last night, and I’m eager to bring you my full review soon. *Spoiler: If you loved Eleanor Oliphant, you will love this!

The Lost for Words Bookshop

Genre/Categories: Contemporary Fiction

1st Line/1st Paragraph:

“A book is a match in the smoking second between strike and flame.”

“Archie says books are our best lovers and our most provoking friends. He’s right, but I’m right, too. Books can really hurt you.”

Are you intrigued? Have you read this?

Our main character, Lovejoy Cardew, is tattooed with the first lines of a few of her most memorable reads …. so you know that the first line of this book will be a good one!
