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: 

  With Love, Louisa
by Ashtyn Newbold

And the first line is...

"A lady had only two respectable choices when faced with poverty.  She could enter into a hasty marriage without any hope of future happiness, or she could call upon her relatives, not matter how distance, for their hospitality.  Being the romantic of all romantics, the first was not an option for Louisa Rosemeyer."  

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 Friday!
    I’m currently reading Secrets in the Mist by Morgan L. Busse. This is a new-to-me author and genre. So far, it’s pretty engaging. I’m just beginning chapter 13 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Theo spent the month collecting everything he could on the subject.”
    Hope you have an excellent weekend!

    1. Thank you so much Nicole! Have a lovely week too and happy reading!

  2. My first line is from a book coming out on the 31st
    Carved in Stone by Elizabeth Camden:
    April 1900. New York City
    How could a man buy a new suit with a dozen eggs?

    1. That's a super interesting line! Happy reading Paula!

  3. That's a good first line.

    My first line is from Undercurrent of Secrets by Rachel Scott McDaniel:

  4. This sounds interesting! I hope it was a great read!
