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: 

  His Bluestocking Bride
by Sally Britton 

And the first line is...

"Ellen flicked a black curl from her forehead, but the irksome curl just bounced back.  Her irritation mounted, and she wished her Mother's maid had not thought to give the matron and her daughter the same curls."

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. Oh, I loved this book! Sally Britton is such a funny author. :)
    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from To Steal a Heart by Jen Turano.
    Here’s the first line from my current read, The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky:

    If she lived to be one hundred and five, Katherine Evangeline Ramsey would never understand why every debutante must begin the London social season by curtsying to the king and queen.

    1. I completely agree Kathleen! Sally Britton's books are great! I need to read both of the books you mentioned. :) Happy reading!

  2. Happy Friday!!

    Over on my blog I am sharing the first line to the Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano
    “It always came to this, didn’t it? Amid the glittering swirl of music and gowns, I looked up into the handsome face of Lord Cumberland and forced a smile as if nothing at all were about to happen.”

    Have a happy weekend!

    1. Thanks Kelly-Ann! I love the title of that book-happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday! 😊
    I'm sharing from All is Mary and Bright by Kasey Stockton on my blog: I'm currently reading The Cul-de-sac War by Melissa Ferguson. I'm just starting chapter 4 so I'll share from there.
    "Chip tried really, really hard to keep a smile from playing on his lips as Bree stomped out of the sleet and onto his concrete porch in tall black galoshes."
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂❤📚

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Into the Darkness" by Margaret Daley:

    "Hot, humid - no, make that wet - air clung to her like a second skin."

  5. My first line is from an exceptional book: The Promised Land by Elizabeth Musser:
    “I have spent twenty years carefully stitching my family’s life together, so when it suddenly starts to unravel I find myself in a tangled knot of anxiety.”
