Today I am going to post a line from: 

  The Queen's Ball

And the first line is...

by Anthea Lawson

May 1851

"The soft gray drizzle of an English spring coated the half-open buds of the rhododendron flowers in the garden and glazed the windows of the late Viscount Tremont's townhouse."  

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. My first line is from Come Back To Me by Jody Hedlund:
    “Your father is in a coma.”
    Happy readin

    1. Oh no, that's terrible--what an opening statement. Happy reading Paula!

  2. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Shell Collector by Nancy Naigle: I'm just starting chapter 19, so I'll share a line from there:
    "The next morning, Amanda read another passage from the book Ginny had given her."
    I hope you have a lovely and relaxing weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. Thank you so much Nicole! I hope you are having a lovely week too--happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Crazy for You" by Susan May Warren and Michelle Sass Aleckson:

    "The plan was easy. Bring Oreos, kiss his mother, and skedaddle."

  4. My first line is from "Bridge of Gold" by Kimberley Woodhouse. "Certain moments in life define a person. Moments that invoke physical feelings that can't be described."
