First Lines Fridays – 30th September 2022

Hey everyone!

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:

‘How much longer now?’
Tyrese let out a loud sigh, making certain his mum heard. He didn’t want to be here. Here, underneath the beating sun. Here in the middle of nowhere. And here because his mum hadn’t given him any other choice.


And the book is…

The Haunting of Tyrese Walker by J.P. Rose

PURCHASE HERE (affiliate links): Amazon UKWaterstonesBook Depository

GoodReads Synopsis:

After a shocking event leaves Tyrese struggling with grief, he’s taken to visit family in Jamaica. From the first night, strange things start happening: impossible visions, blackouts, swarms of insects, and the discovery of a grave hidden deep in the forest… Tyrese can’t explain what’s going on and he’s scared that he’s losing his grip on reality.

Then Tyrese is warned he’s being hunted by the mysterious Shadow Man. Under threat, Tyrese and his friends set out on a terrifying journey across the island to try and uncover the Shadow Man’s sinister history. Who can Tyrese trust when his own mind is falling apart and there’s nowhere left to hide? 


I recently read The Haunting of Tyrese Walker for the upcoming @KaleidoscopicBT blog tour, and I loved it! My stop on the tour is 18th October, so keep an eye out for my review that day.
