Hello Hello! How are you?

Today I’m back with another First Lines Fridays post because I’ve been so busy lately and just haven’t had time to sit down and draft any Down the TBR Hole posts, but hopefully will soon!

The book I’m featuring today is one I’m currently reading and already totally hooked on, so keep on reading to find out what the first lines are and which book they are from!

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!

“There she is,” Philip says as we clear the peaks of several mountains, taking one hand off the steering column to point to a small collection of buildings in the distance. “Healy, Alaska. Home sweet home.”

“Oh wow. It looks…” Tiny. It looks really, really tiny. Way smaller than just my neighborhood in San Diego, let alone the whole city.

Then again, it’s pretty hard to see much of anything from up here. Not because of the mountains that loom over the area like long-forgotten monsters but because we’re in the middle of a weird kind of haze that Philip refers to as “civil twilight” even though it’s barely five o’clock. Still, I can see well enough to make out that the so-called town he’s posting at is full of mismatched buildings randomly grouped together.

I finally settle on, “Interesting. It looks… interesting.”

But what book is this quote from?

Crave (#1) by Tracy Wolff

My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.

Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.

Which could spell death for us all.

Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.


This book has been on my TBR for quite a while now and if you know me, you know I’m a sucker for any book with vampires or other types of creatures (werewolves, witches, etc!). I started it a few days ago and I’m already absolutely hooked, so I can’t wait to continue it! This is going to be a binge-worthy series!

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post.

See you soon, stay safe,

Ellie xx
