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: 

  Town in a Pumpkin Bash
by B. B. Haywood


And the first line is...

"'There's a curse on that house, I'm sure of it,' Maggie Tremont said, the exasperation evident in her voice." 

Happy reading and happy Friday!

    This week on my blog I shared the first line from Backlash by Rachel Dylan but I'm currently reading Under the Tulip Tree by Michelle Shocklee so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: "Jael arrived home. She had news." Hope you have a good weekend with some quality reading time! :)

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Once Upon an Irish Summer" by Wendy Wilson Spooner:

    "I watched her long red hair blow wildly about her frame as I shouted with all my strength, 'Mary Ann! Step back!' But she couldn't hear my voice."

  3. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line from Expecting Danger by Jennifer Pierce. "The hair on the back of Kate's neck stood on end, and the feeling of being watched crawled along her skin
    in goose bumps."

  4. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first line from Rules Are Made to be Broken by Mylissa Demeyere. "I walked through the double doors and into the lobby, clutching the strap of my backpack on my shoulder as if my life depended on it."

    I'm currently reading On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White. I ❤ it so much. Currently, I'm on chpt. 15 so I'll share a line from there.
    "For a long moment, Arabelle could only stare. Perhaps it was the fact that she'd only managed about three hours of sleep, but the image before her simply made no sense."
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂❤📚

    Lilian Blackwell held her breath and inched along the wall, praying with every footfall that Mama wouldn’t look up.
