First Line Fridays - September 8, 2017

Happy Friday! I am so excited to be joining this group of First Line Friday bloggers! I remember the first time I saw it on Reading Is My Superpower and thought it was such a fun idea. I'm thrilled to be participating!

My first line today is from Blown Together by Janet W. Ferguson. I really enjoyed the other books I've read in this series and am looking forward to reading this one.



"No way. Not now. Not ever." 

Maybe that's three lines, but they were all needed for the effect. 😊

Now it's your turn! Grab the book you are reading or that is closest to you and leave the first line in the comments then head over to the blogs listed below to see what others are sharing this week.


If you are interested in joining the First Line Friday group, contact Carrie at Reading is my Superpower, Rachel at Bookworm Mama, Beth Erin at Faithfully Bookish, or Sydney at Singing Librarian Books.

  1. I'm also sharing a Janet Ferguson novel today - from Magnolia Storms. It's the first one of her novels I've read, but I'm certainly keen to read more!

    But next on my to-read pile is Unblemished by Sara Ella, which is a bit different to what I usually read. But it's got a great first line:

    This is all my fault.
    She'll lose her soul because of me.

    Okay, so that's two lines. But you can see why I want to keep reading.

    1. I've heard great things about Magnolia Storms and that is certainly a dramatic first line! I recommend her Southern Hearts series.

  2. Welcome to First Line Fridays! I've read the first in this series and I keep seeing these books everywhere, reminding me that I'm still trying to find the time to read the rest! (Janet, I really will. I promise!!!)

    I’m featuring Nicole Deese’s new book, “A New Shade of Summer” on my blog this week, but I’ve FINALLY managed to get around to reading Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”, and I almost didn’t even want to put it down to do the First Line Friday rounds! But I’ve forced myself to share the first line:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

  3. Welcome to First Line Fridays! I'm glad you have joined.I just finished Magnolia Storms. I've added Blown Together to my ever growing #TBR

    On my blog this week I'm sharing the first line from a book I just finished. The Case of the Clobbered Cad. It was a fun story to read.
    I'll share here the first line from a book my son is currently reading.
    Tree Tall and the Whiteskins by Shirlee Evans
    "Tree Tall crept through the high dew-damp grass along the creek bank. It was early. The sun was not yet over the hill."

  4. My first line is going to be the first paragraph because It is short! It’s from These Healing Hills by Ann Gabhart. And her writing has captured me again!
    Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared. She’d studied the Frontier Nursing information until she almost knew it by heart. That should have given her a glimpse into this place.

    There are sooo many good quotes to glean from this book and I’m only on page 53!

  8. Happy Friday!!

    My first line is from For Such a Moment by Marie Wells Coutu:

    “Ellen Nielson scanned the large office, seeking a secret corner where she could escape.”

  9. Welcome to our group!!!

    My quote comes from The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachel Anderson. This is book #3 in series. I highly recommend all three novels!

    "'How dreadful it would be to live on one's own permanently,' Lady Harriet Cavendish said to no one in particular as she walked through a thick grove of pines in Askern, Yorkshire."

    1. Thanks for the welcome! Your first line sounds like it might be from a novel set in the Regency time period which is one of my favorites. I'll definitely look into those books!
