Today I am going to post a line from:

And the first line is...

"'I was promised chocolate.'"

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 Saturday!
    I'm sharing the first line from The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M. White: I'm still reading this book so I'll share another line from this book.
    "Libby had to bite her lip to keep the laughter from spilling out at the way Oliver Tremayne's eyes yet again went wide with panic."
    Have a great weekend. Happy reading! 😀❤📚

    1. Thanks Nicole! Oh my goodness, how many times have I had to stop myself from laughing! :) Happy reading!

  2. Happy Sunday! This week on my blog, I shared the first line from The Paris Betrayal by James R. Hannibal: "From a rooftop perch, Ben Calix watched the courier leave the Tiber and cross the piazza."

  3. Here’s my first line this week:
    From The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna White:
    5 June. 1906. Penzance, Cornwall, England
    More beauty than Lady Elizabeth Sinclair had ever thought possible beckoned to her-a turquoise sea, blue sky wisped with soft white clouds, birds cartwheeling through the air, islands studding it all with the promise of life she’d never had the opportunity to examine up close.
