  1. Happy Friday!😁

    My First Line Fridays comes from a book I'm planning on reading very soon, Shelter In Place by Nora Roberts.

    On Friday, July 22, 2005, Simone Knox ordered a large Fanta - orange - to go with her popcorn and Swedish Fish. The choice, her standard night at the movies fare, changed her life, and very likely saved it. Still, she'd never drink Fanta again.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😎📚📚

  2. Happy Friday!

    I keep seeing great things about this book, too, and I really want to read it.

    I’m reading The Dear Reader by Mary O'Connell right now, so here’s the first line: “Miss Sweeney disappeared on the first day of March, an icy Thursday morning of gloves and boots and veneers of diamondy frost on the windows of Sacred Heart High School.”

  3. Two words and I'm hooked!

    Today, I'm sharing the first line from a book recommended by my daughter: Matched by Ally Condie. "Now that I’ve found the way to fly, which direction should I go into the night?" I don't think I'm going to read that one, but she sure liked it :) Happy reading!

  7. LOVED this book!!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Her Place in Time by Stephenia H McGee but my next book is going to be The Baker's secret by Stephen P Kiernan so I'll share that first line here: "All through those years of war, the bread tasted of humiliation." Hope you have happy weekend with plenty of reading! :)

  8. I'm sharing from a book that will be out early next month (I won an uncorrected proof on GoodReads) on my blog today, The Daisy Children by Sofia Grant, so here is the second line:

    "It wasn't the fault of the trousers, of course, but it was tempting to blame them nonetheless."

    Happy Reading!
