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 Magnolia Story
by Chip and Joanna Gaines

And the first line is...

"To this day, I am still not sure what it was about Chip Gaines that made me give him a second chance--because, basically, our first date was over before it even started."  

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. I am looking forward to reading that book! Happy Friday! My first line is from "Healing Hearts" by KImberly Rae Jordan:

    "Sophia Haldorson shut off the car's engine, then turned to look at her almost-five-year-old son who sat in his car seat behind her."

    1. It was so good! I highly recommend it--in fact, I actually listened to this book on Audible. It was so fun hearing Chip and Joanna read their book. :) Happy reading Becky!

  2. My first line is from Obsession by Patricia Bradley:
    The January warm spell had definitely ended in South Mississippi.

  3. Happy Friday!
    Over on my blog I'm sharing from All of You, Always by Lindsay Harrel: Currently, I'm just starting A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deibel, so I'll share from there.
    "The grandfather clock downstairs chimed the hour, its clangs all too reminiscent of the funeral bells presiding over Mother's service just yesterday morning."
    Happy reading! 😀❤📚

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line of Waltz in the Wilderness by Kathleen Denly
    " "No!" The scream pierced Eli, ripping her from her sleep."

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!
