Happy New Year! I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas and New Year celebration. It is so wonderful to start again--each and every day is a blessing. Let me leave you with this Bible verse: "He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!' Then he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'" Revelation 21:5 Happy reading!
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!
Today I am going to post a line from:
The Bramble House Christmas
by CJ Carmichael
And the first line is...
"Willa Fairchild hadn't counted on driving through a blizzard on her first night in Montana, but given the way her life had gone the past two-and-a-half years, maybe she should have."
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!
Happy New Year Heather! I love that cover!❤ReplyDelete
My first lines come from a book I'm reading now, The Marriage Bargain by Stephanie Dees....
Cameron Quinn looked around the tiny town of Red Hill Springs. Big pots of pansies, twinkle lights in the trees lining the streets......apparently the basketball team at the local high school was doing well this year--the storefronts were full of team spirit. It had charm, he guessed, if you were a person who liked that down-home kind of stuff.
Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊💕
Thanks Susan! Happy New Year! The Love Inspired books have so many wonderful stories--my favorites are in the historical collection. Happy reading!Delete
Whoa, girl! I need a break from all things Christmas, but there are just SO MANY great Christmas themed books, they don't all fit in December! I wouldn't be opposed to some white winter weather though, we haven't really seen any of that here yet. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Yes, I never get to read all the Christmas books I want to in December, so I have to fit them in throughout the year. :) This book was actually turned into a Hallmark movie. :) Happy New Year Beth!Delete
Happy Friday! My first line is from "Until I Met You: Brides of Seattle Prequel" by Kimberly Rose Johnson:ReplyDelete
"Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle."
This is a great first line, because it talks about coffee. :) Happy New Year Becky!Delete
Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first line of the ‘First January’ diary entry from D.E. Stevenson’s Mrs. Tim of the Regiment on my blog today. So here I’ll share the beginning of the ‘Tenth January’ entry:ReplyDelete
“Meet Nora Watt on my way home from church. She has been lying in wait for me. We agree that the sermon was slightly dull, but that the singing has improved. I see Grace hovering about but there is no escape from Nora.”
Happy New Year Yvette!Delete
I love the cover . . . it's soooo Christmas. I haven't read the book yet or seen the movie. However, that opening line makes me want to bump "A Bramble House Christmas" to the top of my TBR pile.
On my blog this week, I’m featuring Laura Frantz’s “The Frontiersman’s Daughter” as my FLF. I’m also reading Mary Connealy’s “Out of Control.” This FLF is:
June 23, 1866
“Last time. This is it. Never again.”
Have a good weekend and happy reading.
I recommend it Caitlin! :) Reading two books at the same time--brilliant! Happy New Year!Delete
Today, on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Chasing Someday by Crystal Walton. I'm currently on chapter 24, so I will leave the first line from there.
"Chase sat back in one of the wicker chairs Mom insisted he own, cradled his guitar in his lap, and watched the fireflies hail the end of a long day."
It's such a good book. I'm loving it. 😀
Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚
Awesome--this looks like a great book! Happy New Year Nicole!Delete
Sounds like a good read!ReplyDelete
I'm featuring a non-fiction book on my blog this week--A Light So Lovely (about Madeleine L'Engle)--but I'm also about to dive into Stratagem by Robin Caroll, so here's the first line:
"According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can't open the door unless her employee uses the key he got in the last room."
Have a great weekend!
I read A Wrinkle in Time when I was college, so reading a bio about Madeleine L'Engle sounds so interesting. Happy New Year Katie!Delete
