Happy March everyone! We are at the start of a brand new day to a brand new month--how exciting! As the Bible says, "Behold, I make all things new." This month is always wonderful for me, because it is my birthday month! :) So this particular verse really humbles me this time of the year, since I'm about to start a new chapter in my life. Some people do not care for birthdays, but I have always loved mine--it reminds me to be grateful for all my blessings and to remember what the Lord has done in my life. I wish you a month of joy this March! 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:
Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen
And the first line is...
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
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!
A great choice! A few years ago I went back and reread some of the classics and really enjoyed them. It's fun to compare styles of writing then to style of writing now.ReplyDelete
Thanks Robbye! Happy reading!Delete
I've shared the first line from The Deceived by Kelly Harrel over on my blog. But, I am currently reading Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews. OH. MY. WORD! Is this book AMAZING!!!! I'm just starting chapter 12, so I will leave the first line from there.
"Babylon's coolest months were warmer than Jerusalem's winter, and my small world of friendships was warmer still."
Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 😊💜📚
I keep seeing this book all over Instagram! Have a great weekend Nicole!Delete
Happy Friday & Happy Weekend! My first line is from "The Curse of Misty Wayfair" by Jaime Jo Wright:ReplyDelete
"Melancholy was a condition of the spirit and the soul, but also of the mind."
So sad--such a though-provoking first line. Have a great weekend Becky!Delete
Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorite "classics." My first line comes from Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson:ReplyDelete
"Maple leaves draped over the tree house window, the silvery fronds linked together like rings of chain mail to protect the boy and girl playing inside."
I agree Jolene--Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book! There are so many wonderful books in the classic literature genre. :) Have a great weekend!Delete
When I'm having a hard time falling asleep sometimes I put an audiobook on that I've read before so don't have to pay full attention to it. This is my current sleepy-time audiobook lol.ReplyDelete
On my blog this week I shared the first line from Uninvited by Beckie Lindsay but I'm currently reading Vivir el Dream by Allison K Garcia (Yes, it's written in *mostly* English but anything in Spanish shares the translation). I'll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: "Linda grumbled as she changed from her pajamas into jeans and a t-shirt." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)
Audiobooks are great! And I love that first line--sometimes you just want to stay in your pajamas and read a good book. :) Have a great weekend Becca!Delete
