Thursday Thirteen #7

Thirteen First Lines from My Books!

I saw another author do this and I thought it would be fun! Here are thirteen first lines from my books:

1. A vampire walked into a bar. (Stefan’s Salvation)

2. “I heard you were hot.” (Annabelle Lee)

3. “Men Suck.” (Christina’s Tapestry)

4. I must be out of my mind. (Jessamyn’s Christmas Gift)

5. “I hate Valentine’s Day,” Anastasia Style muttered as she contemplated the wisdom of kicking the flat tire she was glaring at. (Anastasia’s Style)

6. Run! (Lucian’s Delight)

7. He was early. (A Love Eternal—Ellora’s Cavemen: Legendary Tails IV)

8. It was the screams that woke him. (Craving Candy)

9. Erin Connors ran her index finger over the glossy magazine cover with the scantily clad cover model and underlined the article, “Seven Sex Positions That Will Drive You Both Wild!” (Erin’s Fancy)

10. “Don’t just stand there, man, push!” (Discovering Dani)

11. “This can’t be happening,” Johanna Harker muttered to herself as she limped off the gravel path to lean against a tree. (Harker’s Journey)

12. “So, will you marry me?” (The Way Home)

13. He sat in his massive chair at the head of the table. (Shadows Stir—Dreams of the Oasis Volume IV)

Thanks Rene and Charli! I think it was Shelley Munro that did this before and I thought the idea was so cool I decided to do it!

amy said...

shelley said...

Some great first lines, NJ! The rest of the books are pretty good reads, too ;)

Christine said...

This is such a cool idea for a TT! Someday I'll have 13 books to be able to quote from.

N.J.Walters said...

Thanks, Amy!

Thanks Shelley. I think it was your blog I got the idea from. :-)

Thanks Christine. It was a lot of fun to do.

Annmarie McKenna said...

Love the idea, NJ. Not that I could use it since I don't have 13 books out, but it's a cool thought.

N.J.Walters said...

Thanks, AM. The way you're going, it won't be too long until you'll be doing one too.

Becka said...

Ooo first lines are so cool! I especially love the creative ones. "A vampire walked into a bar." That one had me chuckling. LOL


N.J.Walters said...

Thanks, Becka. I'll admit that I love that line as well. It was the first image I had of the character and I knew I just had to use it. *g*

Nicole Austin said...

This is great! I love it! Too bad I don't have 13 yet.

Samantha Lucas said...

Oooh great list! I may do this at some point too, only I just have six books at the moment. lol

Amanda Young said...

I'm so jealous. I can't wait until I have that many books. *g*

Rhian / Crowwoman said...

these were great beginning lines. I remember this one and it was a favorite: "Erin Connors ran her index finger over the glossy magazine cover with the scantily clad cover model and underlined the article, “Seven Sex Positions That Will Drive You Both Wild!”

loved that series.
