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: 

  Broken Bone China
by Laura Childs 

And the first line is...

"Red and yellow flames belched from propane burners, inflating the hot-air balloon to heroic proportions and propelling it skyward."  

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 line is from "The Heart of a Hero" by Susan May Warren:

    "In the daylight, Jake Silver wasn't the devil."

  2. That just sounds so peaceful to be floating high in the sky in a hot air balloon! Happy Friday!!

  3. My first line is from STORIES THAT BIND US by Susie Finkbeiner

    My Norman had never understood why I liked to hang laundry on the line when I had a perfectly good dryer inside.

  4. Reminds me of the time I rode in a hot air balloon! Today, I'm sharing the first line from The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep: "Death prowled the cellblock like a dark animal seeking prey -- especially the weakest."

    1. That's so awesome Jolene! What was riding in a hot air balloon like? Happy Friday!

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Comparison Girl by Shannon Popkin but I'm currently reading The Way of Love by Tracie Peterson so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (5) here: "Mrs. Weaver joined the boardinghouse residents for breakfast the next morning." Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Thank you so much Nicole! Happy reading!

  7. Thank you so much! That is a wonderfully descriptive first line--happy reading!
