First Lines Friday – December 28

This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

Here are my first lines:

“You are about to read the true story of Father Christmas. Yes. Father Christmas. You may wonder how I know the true story of father Christmas, and I will tell you that you shouldn’t really question such things. Not right at the start of a book.”

Do you recognize these first lines?

And the book is… A Boy Called Christmas (Christmas Series #1) by Matt Haig.

Goodreads synopsis:

You are about to read the true story of Father Christmas.
It is a story that proves that nothing is impossible.
If you are one of those people who believe that some things are impossible, you should put this book down right away. It is most certainly not for you.
Because this book is FULL of impossible things.

Are you still reading?

Good.

Then let us begin . . .

A Boy Called Christmas is a tale of adventure, snow, kidnapping, elves, more snow, and an eleven-year-old boy called Nikolas, who isn’t afraid to believe in magic.

Have you read A Boy Called Christmas? What did you think of it?

  1. Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

    My first lines come from Home For Christmas by Holly Chamberlin…..

    It was the eleventh of December, a crisp winter day with not a cloud in the sky to threaten rain or snow. Nell King shivered as she came down the stairs from the second floor and into the living room.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ†πŸ’•
