2 thoughts on “Hooking the Reader with a Killer Opening to Your Book

  1. I’m kind of a mix of both…there are books that have a slow start but then hooks me in after a few chapters 😂 Some books have killer openings but fall flat after a couple of chapters. When one book has a killer opening it’s like my expectations are higher and then I get disappointed. Have you ever felt that way with some books?

    1. Oh, yes! I believe the best plot twist in a murder mystery I’ve ever read was in a book it took me multiple attempts over months to get into. The first 20% is dull as a butter knife – but I’m so glad I hate DNFs and kept trying because the last 80% is pure gold! 😉

      The flipside of this happens WAY too often – a great beginning fizzles out long before the end and just has you wishing it was over. 😀
