Hookers and Hangers - Has Anyone Seen A Hooker?

Just wanna say, this is the absolute best title for a blog hop EVER!

The Hookers and Hangers bloghop is being hosted by the lovely ladies from Falling For Fiction! It's all about gripping your readers with excellent opening lines, and leaving them begging for more with amazing cliffhangers.

We begin with the hookers, and I am going to be using some of the openers from my latest WIP, the follow up to Game On. :D
 

Hooker One: Rain hammered against the window, jolting me awake.

Hooker Two: “One more try, I’ll do it this time, I swear!”

Hooker Three: Lunch at the Mills’ house was … a little weird to say the least. 

Hooker Four: “What the hell is she doing here?”

Hooker Five: Why are there lights on during the day? It is daytime, right? I always turn the lights off before I go to sleep, so why are they on? Wait. Where am I? 

Hooker Six:  It had been three hours since I’d seen Leon, and I was still thinking about what he said.

Okay, that's all, now I'm off to hop around to visit the other participants! :D  

P.S I'm really not sure why the words came out all different sizes up there, sorry about that!

  3. You have a really good voice. Very consistent. You can't beat a line that simply saids "What the hell is she doing here?" to produce some conflict. I am intrigued. Can't wait to read your hangers.

  4. Haha. I was wondering if you had done that one purpose, with the different sizes. :) It looks cool, so well done. ;)

    Have I said how excited I am for Game On?? I am SUPER excited. Love me some soccer.

    These lines are great. I'm liking four :)
