First Line Friday - August 17, 2018


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books!

Today I'm sharing the first line from the book I'm currently reading Someone to Trust by Melanie D. Snitker. 



"Brooke Pierce's Kia Rio barely made it through the busy intersection before it rolled to a stop at the curb."

Now it's your turn! Share the first line of the book closest to you in the comments below, then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today.

  2. Happy Friday! 😎

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading soon, Through the Autumn Air by Kelly Irvin.......

    At what point did a person realize that the special moments in life streak by in a flash, distilled into memories before they could be truly lived? Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!πŸ˜ŠπŸ“šπŸ’–

    The book I am sharing on my blog today is A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal but the book I'm currently reading is The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright. Since it was my FLF last week I'll share the first line from chapter 20 where I am now: "'You know you live in a creepy old house, don't you?' Christen stood from her chair at the kitchen table and retrieved the bag of mint Oreos from the counter." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! :)

  4. Happy Friday! I love your blog name- such happy things- sprinkles and pink!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing Not Her Daughter, but I’ll share from another book I’m reading here, Sadie,

    “DANNY GILCHRIST: It’s a beautiful day in the city. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky. I had a great lunch in Central Park, a chicken shawarma from the Shawarma Stop, which was overwhelmingly recommended to us by our listeners after last week’s episode on NYC’s best kept secrets. Thanks for that, you guys. It was so good, it just might be my dinner too. From WNRK New York, I’m Danny Gilchrist and you are listening to Always Out There.”

  5. The book I'm sharing on my blog is "The Covenant" by Hilda Stahl. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter 9 of the same novel. "In September, Jennet stood beside the open front door, held the satchel of clothes out to Free, and said dutifully, "Take care of yourself."" Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 2 and the little poem before) is from "A Little Ray of Sunshine" by Kimberly Rae Jordan.

    "(Shadows around me, shadows above me
    Never conceal my Savior and Guide:
    He is the light, in Him is no darkness,
    Ever I'm walking close to His side.)

    Ryan McFadden looked at each of the men gathered around the large boardroom table. He searched the familiar faces for any sign of the unease that sat so heavy in his gut."

  8. Happy Friday!

    Today I shared the first line of one of my next reads In Another Time by Caroline Leech. It's a YA historical romance set during WWII in the Scottish Highlands. Here, though, I'll share something from the book I am currently reading, See All the Stars by Kit Frick. I'm on chapter 31 now so I'm going to share the first line of that chapter.

    MARCH, JUNIOR YEAR
    (THEN)
    I grabbed Jenni before fourth, on our way into the sky dome.

    Enjoy your weekend. May it be filled with great books ������

  9. Happy Friday! I’m featuring lines from Julia Wolf’s Cut Free on my blog today.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Susan Stoker’s Defending Allye.

    “So I’ll see you back at the rendezvous point, right?” Black asked.
    “Absolutely,” Gray told his friend and partner as he readied himself to slip over the side of the fiberglass boat into the Pacific Ocean.

  10. Another author I haven't read!

    I'm about to start Hiding in Plain Sight by Mary Ellis, so I'll share that first line here:
    It wouldn't have taken much to turn a lousy day into something left of atrocious.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. I'm sharing from True Grit by Charles Portis today, here is a line from the ebook at 7%:

    "If Papa had a failing it was his kindly disposition. People would use him. I did not get my mean streak from him."

    Happy Friday!

  13. On my blog, I've shared the first line from Kim Vogel Sawyer's upcoming novel Ours For a Season. Right now, I'm just finishing up As the Tide Comes In by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall. I'm going to share the first line from chapter 36 here:

    "Luella drove toward church as Tara fidgeted with notes to her speech."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time! πŸ˜ƒπŸ“š

  14. Sounds interesting!

    I'm sharing from Know You More by Jan Thompson on my blog - it's the latest addition to my never-ending to-read pile. And it's currently free on Kindle (for around another 24 hours).
