It is time for this week’s First Lines Fridays post!
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!
The first lines of today’s chosen book are:
Ten years ago, anyone who took much of an interest in the subject of conspiracies was seen as slightly weird. I remember one book signing where a woman came up to me and asked me to sign a copy of the first edition of this book for her sister. ‘Her name’s Jakki,’ she said. ‘J-A-K-K-I. She’ll love this. She believes in everything.’
No one should ever believe in everything.
And the book is…
Conspiracy by Ian Shircore
Conspiracy 2022 edition is revised, expanded and updated, with new cases, material and evidence.
New topics include the UK subpostmasters scandal, Trump and QAnon, Putin and Malaysia Airlines MH17, COVID-19 and the lab-leaks theory, Russiagate and the strange death of Jeffrey Epstein.
I saw Conspiracy on a recent trip to the local supermarket, and of course I HAD to buy it! Things like this fascinate me, even if I don’t necessarily agree with the conspiracy, I love hearing other people’s theories on these types of topics. I am aiming to read this as soon as I have got through my backlog of ARCs, review requests, and blog tours!
Have you read this book?
If yes, what did you think of it?
