First Line Friday - September 14, 2018

Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! How did it get to be mid-September already? 

Today I'm sharing the first line from What Matters Most by Kellie Coates Gilbert. This book has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while and I'm hoping to read it soon. 

"'I'm sorry. We really need someone a bit more qualified.'"

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.

  1. On my blog, I shared the first line of Alessandro D'Avenia's "White as Silence, Red as Song," but here I will share something from my current read, "Strange Grace" by Tessa Graton. I'm currently 25% into the story and I'm enjoying it! This is the first line of the current chapter I'm on.

    "Three year ago, when Arthur was nearly fifteen, his best friend, Rhun, stopped the along the narrow deer path they'd been stalking along, and kissed him."

    Hope you're having a great day! Enjoy the weekend ahead. :D

  2. Happy Friday!

    My First Lines come from Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne.....

    “This is totally lame. Why do we have to stay here and wait for you? We can walk home in, like, ten minutes.” Daniela Capelli drew in a deep breath and prayed for patience, something she seemed to be doing with increasing frequency these days when it came to her thirteen-year-old daughter. “It’s starting to snow and already almost dark.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕📚

  3. Words no person wants to hear! Hope you enjoy the book.

    I'm sharing the first line from "My Hands Came Away Red" by Lisa McKay on my blog today, but I've also just finished reading Lisa Harris's new release "A Secret to Die For":

    A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out of the novel she was reading.

    Have a great weekend!

    Andie grabbed the pommel, slid her foot in the stirrup and hopped up on May-a fifteen-hand black cutting horse with white socks.

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  7. Those are the worst words to hear when applying for a new job. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is “Out of the Storm” by Jody Hedlund. Since I’m still reading it, I will share the first line of the fourth chapter here. “Isabelle,” called Henry from the bedroom. “I need you!” May your weekend be all you’re hoping it will be.

  8. That first line made me cringe. Not the best thing to be told.

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Tracy Groot's novel The Stones of my Accusers. Currently, I am reading Finding Us by Heather Moore. So far, it's a fun book. One of those books that has me smiling with each page! I am starting chapter 7, so I will leave the first line from there.

    "Opening the bookshop on Saturday morning wasn't as bad as Felicity thought it might be."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with quality reading time!

  9. Happy Friday! After preparing my blog post sharing first line from Shelley Shepard Gray’s Her Fear, I ended up reading the entire book. So here I’ll share the first lines for a novella I plan to read soon, Come Fly with Me by Gina Welborn and Becca Whitham:

    Please, let him not be here. As Luanne Palmer climbed the stairs to the second floor, she muttered “please” after “please.”

  10. This has been on my to-read list for half of forever as well. I read the first in the series and thought it was excellent, but have never got further. Too many books, too little time!

    I'm sharing the first line from All Made Up by Kara Isaac on my blog this week. It's currently available for pre-order, and it's another winner in my totally biased opinion :)

    I'm currently reading Delayed Justice by Cara Putman. Here's the first line:

    "It's time to go, sweetie."

    Have a great weekend!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  11. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Playing for More by Case Keenum to celebrate NFL season. (I feel the need to share that I'm a Colts fan). I am also currently reading Indivisible by Travis Thrasher so I will share the first line of that here: "She carries the memories and always will." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! :)
