I love Hallmark movies--especially the Christmas movies! :) It's so funny to see that they are already advertising their Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel right now too. The lovely part, of course, is that most of these films are based on books--so I though I would highlight one of these stories this week.
Do you have a favorite Hallmark movie or maybe a favorite Hallmark mystery movie? If so, I would love to hear your recommendations. Please let me know if 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:
Journey Back to Christmas
by Leigh Duncan
And the first line is...
"Her purse meticulously balanced in her lap, Hanna Morse crossed her ankles and pushed down a quiver of anticipation as the heavy curtains pulled away from the movie screen."
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!
My First Line comes from a book I'm reading now, The Ones We Choose by Julie Clark.....
If loneliness were a color, it would be the deep purple of my eight year old's shirt as he walks solitary laps around the school track.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚📚
Great comparison and imagery in that first line--happy Monday Susan!Delete
Hallmark Christmas movies are the best (and part of the reason I don't have cable. I'd never get any reading done!)ReplyDelete
“‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.’” No, I'm not reading Pride and Prejudice (again), but am reading a retelling by Debra White Smith: First Impressions.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Pride and Prejudice is my very favorite book. :) Happy Monday Suzie!Delete
Hallmark Christmas movies are my favorite! Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
I completely agree Trisha! Happy Monday!Delete
I will have to check out this book! My favorite Hallmark movie is A December Bride, based on Denise Hunter's book, and Denise & her husband appear in it.ReplyDelete
Happy Friday! My first line is from Robin Mason’s The Silent Song of Winter.
” The sounds of the swamp in winter would scare another person but not me.”
That is a wonderful Christmas movie! Happy Monday Becky!Delete
Today, I am showcasing Karen Barnett's novel Where the Fire Falls (#2 in her Shadows of the Wilderness series) over on my blog. Here I will share the first lines from chapter 2.
"Clark grunted as he jostled the bags under his arm and clambered up the stairs. At her disposal? First change he got, he'd be setting this little minx straight."
Have a great weekend!
Interesting first line--definitely makes me want to read the book! :) Happy Monday Nicole!Delete
The book I'm sharing this week on my blog is Grace in Strange Disguise but here I'll share from The Calling of Emily Evans by Janette Oke, which is the book I featured for my Memorable Monday post this week: "Emily Evans lifted a slender hand and pushed back a wisp of wayward brown hair." Have a great weekend! :)ReplyDelete
I love Janette Oke! She was one of my favorite authors growing up. Happy Monday Becca!Delete
I'm currently reading Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett. Here are the first couple of lines from chapter 10...ReplyDelete
"Clark strode into the Glacier Point Hotel. A burning sensation simmered in his gut, like his best campfire stew straight from the pot."
I love the imagery and detail in the lines from this book--it will definitely have to go on my Amazon wish list. :) Happy Monday Beth!Delete
I'm sharing from a favorite re-read on my blog, but I'll share from my current read here - a novel set in the 1920’s, Ramble and Roar by Catie Cordero:ReplyDelete
“I wasn’t looking for death. It found me. That’s what I tell myself.”
Oh my! That is definitely a shocking first line--happy Monday Yvette!Delete
I LOVE Hallmark movies. :) One of my favorites is Christmas at Cartwright's.ReplyDelete
