First Line Fridays


I was looking through the numerous books I have on my Kindle, and I came across this book by Brandy Bruce.  Several months ago, I reviewed her book The Last Summer, which was a wonderful tale, so I cannot wait to read this new story she has written.  On a side note, yet a very amazing fact to know, is that Brandy graduated from Liberty University--just like me.  :) 

Have you read any books by Brady Bruce?  What books are you most looking forward to reading this spring?  Let me know in the comments below.  :) 

Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Looks Like Love 
by Brandy Bruce 



And the first line is...

"I wasn't going to marry him anyway."  

Happy reading and happy Friday!  

Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books  to see who else is participating!

  3. Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It's the book closest to me right now because I'm currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    "Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean."

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

    1. I love Shakespeare! When I was in college, I had the honor of studying abroad in Oxford, England, and we visited the Globe in London. Ironically, we watched the play Romeo and Juliet--it was so good! Happy Friday Nicole!

    I'm reading Julie by Catherine Marshall right now. The first line is: "Our 1928 Willys-Knight had been climbing for at least ten miles, one hairpin turn after another, under a threatening sky."

    Have a wonderful weekend!
