First Line Fridays

Happy January everyone!  I pray you have had a great start to 2019.  How is the weather where you are right now?  It seemed to be getting warmer one day--almost like spring--but then Jack Frost came right back!  Of course, this cold weather makes me feel like it is still Christmas.  Does anyone else feel that way?  And am I the only one still catching up on Christmas movies?  :)  Have a lovely day and 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: 

  A Tender Hope 
by Amanda Cabot 

And the fist line is...

August 8, 1881

"She was free."  

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. Happy Friday!😉

    My first lines come from Restaurant Weeks are Murder by Libby Klein.......

    “I don’t care how good Dr. Oz says it is, I’m not eating vegan cheese.” Aunt Ginny took the last stuffed pheasant off the Fraser fir, wrapped it in tissue paper, and placed it in an old Woolworth’s hat box to store until next Christmas.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕

    1. It's always so sad to take down the Christmas tree! Happy reading Susan!

  2. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks Beckie! Have a great week too and happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first few lines of Who I Am with You by Robin Lee Hatcher. It's such a good book. I'm just beginning chapter 25, so I will share the first line from there.

    "Feeling elated by his day down in the valley, meeting with a financial advisor and a Realtor, Ridley rapped on Jessica's back door."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

  4. Hi! Happy Friday.

    I shared the first couple of lines from one of my recent reads, The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi, on my blog. I loved this book so much and to celebrate its coming release (January 15) I will be sharing the first couple of lines from its prologue chapter here.

    The matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner. In the normal course of things, she did not care for punctuality. Punctuality, with its unseemly whiff of eagerness was for peasants. And she was neither a peasant nor eager to endure a meal with the mongrel heir of House Nyx.

    Hope you enjoy that. Happy weekend!

    1. Let's see, I think the saying goes...I'm not late, everyone else is just early. :) Happy reading Rachel!

  5. Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Marry Me Katie (Whispers in Wyoming Book 7)" by Lisa Prysock:

    "Flight #753 to Rockport Regional, come in Rockport Regional Airport... repeat... requesting permission to make an emergency landing... repeat... Flight #753 requesting permission to make an emergency landing. Low on fuel."

  6. I'm sharing the first paragraph from a non-fiction book today, Code Name: Lise by Larry Loftis. Here is the line that follows:

    "If his instincts were right, this was a girl who would throw herself headlong into danger."

    Happy Friday!

  7. I'm sharing the first line from You're Loved No Matter What by Holley Gerth: "Here's the scandalous truth: we can be loved, accepted, happy, and less stressed without being perfect."

    Have a great weekend!
