First Line Fridays

For this week, I decided to highlight a mystery instead of a Christmas book.  I can't believe it's November already!  Yet, I did start playing Christmas music this past week.  :)  Has anyone started decorating their Christmas tree yet or watching Hallmark Christmas movies?  I have seen so many Instagram posts where people are already putting up their decorations, which sounds like a lovely idea.  Happy reading everyone! 

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Buried in Books 
by Kate Carlisle 

And the first line is...

"'The name is Wainwright,' I said to the conference volunteer seated at the registration table before me.  'Brooklyn Wainwright.'"  

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! 


  1. That sounds heavenly!

    I'm featuring the first line from Angela K. Couch's brand new release "The Tory's Daughter" on my blog, but here, I'm going to share the first line of "Little Women", which I've just started listening to via audiobook:

    "Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I absolutely love Little Women!! Have you seen the film with Winona Ryder? It is so lovely! Happy reading girl!

  2. I love the cover of this book. I absolutely like the bookshelf, the cat, and the cozy feeling.

    This week I am featuring the first sentence from `Swimming in the Deep End` (Christina Suzann Nelson)

    So here I'll feature the first sentence from my next TBR book.

    `Someday I hope to write a book on the subject of "The End". (Through My Father's Eyes` by Franklin Graham)

    1. That is a very interesting thought! I bought this book by Franklin Graham for my dad. :) Happy reading Michelle!

  3. My first line comes from A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner:

    September 2011

    The length of floral-patterned challis rested on the cutting table like a bridal bouquet undone.

    Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!!!

  4. Over on my blog I'm sharing the first line from A Musket In My Hands by Sandra Merville Hart. Here I'll share the first line from chapter 8.
    "Callie's fingers shook as she signed the document to enter the army."

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend with lots of time to enjoy reading!

  5. Happy Friday!
    This week on my blog I shared The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright but I'm currently reading A Light on a Hill by Connilyn Cossette so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (30) here: "Staying close to the narrow river that now barreled downhill through the valley toward Beit She'an, we kept within the trees as much as possible." Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Happy Weekend! My first line is from Wait for Me by Susan May Warren:

    “He wasn’t looking for trouble, but if Pete didn’t act right now, at least one person was going to die.”

    1. Oh my goodness--what a first line! Happy reading Becky!

  7. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from An Unseemly Wife by E.B. Moore on my blog. Here is the first sentence from Chapter 6:

    “On and on, they rode alone through the woods, between the branches, a flaming sun setting thin clouds aglow, until one night the sky cleared to a deep black studded with uncountable white points.”

    1. I love the descriptions in this first line! Happy reading Yvette!
