Hey everyone! How has your April being going thus far? It's been a bit busy for me, but I'm looking forward to celebrating Easter in a couple of weeks. What are your Easter plans?
April is also a special month for me because it is Donate Life month. If you don't know much about Donate Life, I will include a link below, but April is about celebrating life and honoring those who have given life through organ donation.
Thank you for your interest!
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!
Today I am going to post a line from:
In Places Hidden
by Tracie Peterson
And the fist line is...
Late November, 1905
"'San...Fran...cisco! Next stop, San...Fran...cisco,!' the conductor called in a slow, elongated manner.'"
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!
Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line of Amanda Dykes's novella "Up from the Sea". Here I'll share with you the first line from chapter 25 of the book I'm currently reading, The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E. Ladd. "They'd found her."ReplyDelete
Oh, I want to read this book! It's such a beautiful cover too. Happy reading Trisha!Delete
Today on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. It is SO awesome. You can see my post by going to: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/04/11/first-line-friday-82-2/. Currently, I am on chapter 22, so I will share a line from there.
"The knock came late as the house rattled with the crashes and flashes of a spring thunderstorm."
Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤️📚
Another book I need to read...I read my first book by Hauck last year, and it was great! Happy reading Nicole!Delete
The book I shared today on my blog is Caught by Surprise by Jen Turano but I'm currently reading The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sara E Ladd so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (17) here: "Delia chewed her lip as she traversed the path to Fairhold Cottage, mentally practicing what she wanted to say." Hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
I love that people are sharing the first lines from the chapters they are on. What a great idea! Happy reading Becca!Delete
Tracie Peterson always writes interesting historical novels. I can't wait to get to this one on my extensive TBR pile.
Today on my blog, I am sharing the opening line from Susan Anne Mason’s A Worthy Heart. I’m also reading The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky. The first line is:
“If she lived to be one hundred and five, Katherine Evangeline Ramsey would never understand why every debutante must begin the London social season by curtsying to the king and queen.”
Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂
Both of those books sound like excellent reads! And yes, I have an extensive TBR pile too...that's the perfect way to explain it. :) Happy reading!Delete
Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer is on top of my “read this next” stack. I’m sharing from Chapter 1 on my blog, so here is the first line from the prologue:ReplyDelete
“A great philosopher looks at his various struggles as fodder for his innovative thinking, but, since I am not a great philosopher, I look at my struggles as something akin to stepping on a bee the size of a Komodo dragon.”
Happy Friday and have a good weekend!
I read the first book in this series, and it was great! Can't wait to read the next text. Happy reading Yvette!Delete
I'm sharing the first line from Beyond the Stars, Past the Moons by Jebraun Clifford on my blog today. It's from the Encircled anthology, which I'm looking forward to reading.
Here's another first line from the anthology. This one is from Edged in Silver by Laurie Lucking:
"If only I didn’t have to go home."
Happy reading. Have a great weekend :)
Oh, goodness! I always want to go home--just like Dorothy--"there's no place like home." :) Happy reading Iola!Delete
That's such a striking cover!ReplyDelete
I'm sharing about a FREE novella by Tari Faris on my blog today, but I'm also in the middle of listening to Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell, narrated by Juliet Stevenson. I'm absolutely loving it--both the story and the narration. Here's the first line from chapter 16:
The day arrived on which the masters were to have an interview with a deputation of the work-people.
Have a great weekend!
I love Elizabeth Gaskell! The Victorian era will always be my favorite era of literature. :) Happy reading Katie!Delete
I haven't read any of Tracie Peterson's books in a long time. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Today I'm sharing the first lines from Glory Road by Lauren K. Denton:
"I'd been on the porch steps shelling purple hull peas for less than an hour and my thumbnails had already turned purple."
Oh my! I can understand how that would happen--great descriptive line. Happy reading!Delete
I'm late this weekend because I just got back from being out of town. I will share a book that was waiting for me in the mailbox -- Living Lies by Natalie Walters. "Just let go."ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
A book waiting in the mailbox...what a perfect day! Happy reading Beckie!Delete
