First Line Friday

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? I saw this over on The Anatomy of a Bookworm but it was originally hosted by Wandering Words.

Rules:
> 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!

I didn’t get a chance to post this on Friday, but here’s last weeks First Line Friday! Here we go! πŸ˜€

I never thought I’d be back here. My family moved around a lot when I was a kid – never stayed in one place long enough to really settle anywhere. I never felt like I belonged, but here… here, I could have, if we’d stayed long enough.

Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu. A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft. Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teenage witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town. One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home. Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.

Did anyone guess what book it was? πŸ˜€ I have been waiting to get my hands on this book for so long! πŸ˜‚ I can’t wait to start reading it ❀ Have you read Mooncakes yet? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Hope you all enjoyed! Bye guys, happy reading! x
