First Line Friday - March 9, 2018

Hello! I hope you had a good week. How was your weather? We were supposed to get another winter storm, but it seems to have fizzled and there isn't a flake in sight! 

What have you been reading this week? I'd love to know! Leave the first line in the comments below then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today. 

I'm currently reading The Amish Nanny's Sweetheart by Jan Drexler and that's where my first line is from this week.


"'You're sure you want to do this?'"

I hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  1. Well that opens up lots of possibilities!

    My blog is featuring Beneath The Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn, but here I will share from As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner. "Morning light shimmers on the apricot horizon as I stand at the place where my baby boy rests."

    Happy Friday!

  2. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from a book I will be starting later this weekend, Love’s Journey in SugarCreek by Sienna Miller.

    The leather on Rachel Troyer’s gun holster creaked as she shifted her weight on the kitchen chair. Her three elderly Amish aunts shot wary glances toward the offending weapon.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!😁📚

  3. I rarely read Amish but this first line definitely pulls a reader in!

    I'm currently reading "My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California: Abby's Prospects" by Janice Thompson. The first line is: "Never underestimate the power of coffee, Neville."

    Happy Friday!

  6. What part of the country do you live in? I am in eastern Nebraska and we have been on the very edge of every storm this winter and gotten hardly anything. On the other hand, I was born and raised in Minnesota, so what is significant snowfall here is definitely not significant to me, haha.

    Happy Reading!

    1. It's amazing how a few inches of snow can be a lot or a little depending on what you're used to. I live in the midatlantic and we've had our share of snow this winter (at least by my standards :)). Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line of a wonderful new book about the Maccabees, Judah's Wife, but here I'll share the first line of the nonfiction book I'm reading now, Our Unmet Needs by Charles Stanley: "Do you have a nagging, gnawing feeling that something isn't quite right in your life? Do you feel overwhelmed by a need you can't meet, a problem you can't solve, or a question you can't answer? Are you able to identify the real need that underlies your feelings of uneasiness, fear, worry, or restlessness?"

  10. Happy Friday! I always love seeing what everyone is reading when I get to stop by! My first line is from A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green:

    “Propping open the door to her shop, Vivienne Rivard listened to a distant rumble that vibrated the windows and shivered in her chest.”

  11. Happy Friday! On my blog, I'm featuring The Healer by Beverly Joy Roberts. It's an amazing fiction that moved me deeply. I hope you will take the time to check it out. Here, I will share the first line from a book by C.H. Spurgeon that I'm currently reading. "'Thou has visited me in the night.' --Psalm 18:3. 'Tis a theme for wonder that the glorious God should visit sinful man." Wishing you a blessed weekend.

    "Nash slid the tin of peppermints into his coat pocket and reached beneath the counter to pull out Mrs. Lancaster's log book."

    I am featuring Olivia Twist on my blog so here I'll share the first line from The Man He Never Was by James Rubart. Toren Daniels rolled over in bed and light pierced his closed eyelids, which meant five a.m. had come and gone.
