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: 

  What a Spinster Wants
by Rebecca Connolly

And the first line is...

"Lady Edith Leveson sat on the faded brocade of her couch, seething as she stared stonily out of the filthy windows of her London townhome."  

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 (2) line(s) is from "Hope for Christmas" by Dr. Elizabeth Maddrey:

    "Cyan Hewitt stared out at the waves of the Pacific Ocean. The pebbly beach on Whidbey Island wasn't comfortable for sitting, so he'd found himself doing a lot of standing on mornings when the sea called to him."

    1. It's always exciting to learn about Christmas books! Happy reading Becky!

  2. Great first line! I'm excited to read this story!!

    Mine is from Alexis by Dianne Harman.......

    Alexis sat back in her chair and stared at Bob and Nina, not believing what she's just heard. After several moments she cleared her throat and said in a voice that was clearly fighting back tears "You're giving me weight loss surgery for my annual bonus? Seriously?" she asked.

    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!📚💜

    1. Yeah! I am so excited you have a new book to read! Happy Friday Susan!

  3. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray. "I've face-planted myself into rock bottom."

  4. I'm currently reading Tomorrow's Shining Dream by Naomi Rawlings.
    "Daniel shifted in his saddle, causing a drop of sweat to roll down his back."
    I hope you have a great weekend. 🙂❤📚

  5. My first line is from The Edge of Belonging a debut book by Amanda Cox.
    September 8, 1994
    People considered him homeless because he didn’t have an address of his own, but Harvey James would’ve been homeless even if he owned the turreted mansion off State Route 460.

  6. Uh oh...
    I wonder why she's mad.
