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: 

  The Unfortunate Debutante
by Laura Beers
And the first line is...
England 1815
"Emma was a notorious dreamer.  She dreamed improbable dreams, and her mind was often far away, in another time." 
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. My first line is from a WWII book by Anne Greene: Angel With Steel Wings:
    December 1943- Camp Davis, North Carolina
    “Bad weather. Bad plane. Bad day. And I have a bad feeling.”

    1. Oh no! I hope everything turns out ok--happy reading Paula!

  2. My first line today is from Sweet as Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand: “Dan Kanagy stopped his open-air buggy in the middle of the deserted road and turned on his flashlight. ”

    1. Intrigue--I want to know what happens next! Happy reading Ellie!

  3. Happy Friday! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I’m currently reading Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey by Abigail Wilson. It’s awesome!!! I’ll share a line from chapter 3 here.
    “As with so many previous events in my life, my marriage proved the complete opposite of my dreams.”
    Isn’t that a fantastic line? The novel is filled with lines like this. So good!
    Have a great weekend! 🙂💚📚

    1. I love the title of that book! Happy reading Nicole!

  4. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line form She Walks in Beauty by Siri Mitchell.
    “Get Dressed, Clara.”

    Happy Weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Hadley Beckett's Next Dish by Bethany Turner, but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from where I'm at right now (chapter 18) here: "What was I thinking? What was I thinking? What was I thinking?" I'm loving the witty humor all throughout this one.
    Happy reading!

    1. I've thought that :) Happy reading Becca!
