First Line Fridays

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

Today I am going to post a line from: 

  Murder in the Locked Library 
by Ellery Adams

And the first line is...

"Don't touch that book!" 

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! Today I'm sharing the first lines from Light From Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker: "Cohen Marah clears his throat quietly, more out of discomfort than the presence of any particular thing that needs clearing, and attempts to step over the body for a second time."

    1. Oh my goodness! That last bit was a surprise! Happy reading Jolene!

  2. Locked room mysteries are fun!

    I’m sharing the first line from Catherine West’s latest book over on my blog, As the Light Fades. I know we’re not supposed to judge books by the cover, but this has a great cover and I’m itching to get into it.

    Happy reading!

  3. What a horrible thing to say! ;) I'm not much into mysteries, but I love looking at the covers of the ones that have animals on them. I hope you have a nice weekend!

    1. Animal covers are always so pretty! Thanks Ellie--have a lovely weekend too and happy reading!

  4. Happy Saturday!
    Yesterday on my blog I shared the first couple of lines from A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden: Currently, I am reading The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken. I'll share a line from there.

    "A thick cloud of dust hovered on the top of the hill just outside the Bates estate."

    Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂💜📚

    1. So many books are coming out--so exciting! Happy reading Nicole!

  5. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Choose Me" by Marion Ueckermann:

    "Today of all days, Julia Delpont needed to forget about the world."

  6. I’m wondering what’s the go with the book?

    I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Starting Anew by Melanie D. Snitker.

    Lynn Crosby sat up in bed, unsure of what actually woke her up.
