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: 

  Of Books and Bagpipes
by Paige Shelton

And the first line is...

"'Wow!' I said as I stepped out of the cab and looked over its top toward the castle.  'It's beautiful.'" 

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 have not heard of this book or author, but I love a good mystery! I love castles too. I hope you enjoy it!

    1. I just finished this book, which is the second in the series, and it was wonderful!! Happy reading Cindy!

    Happy Friday!

  3. Happy Friday!
    I'm currently reading The Ace of Hearts by Ashtyn Newbold. It's pretty good! I'm on chapter 8, so I'll share from there.
    "Bridget's room was near Alice's, tucked on the second floor among all the newly decorated ones."
    Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂❤📚

    1. Thanks Nicole! Ashtyn Newbold has some wonderful books--happy reading!

  4. My first line comes from The Nature of Small Birds by Susie Finkbeiner.
    No matter how the world has changed over the course of my life, somehow crayons still smell the same way they did when I was a kid.
