First Line Friday - May 11, 2018

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I've already been thinking about my summer reading list and I have a suggestion for yours: Why I Hate Green Beans by Lincee Ray. I think this would be a GREAT summer read! It's light and refreshing. You can read my review here. Instead of sharing the first line, I'm going to share my favorite line.



"I hopped up from my bed, grabbed my IV pole, and sprinted like an ambitious snail to the bathroom."

Now it's your turn! Leave 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. Happy Friday! Haha funny first line!😊

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading later this month, The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan.

    There are good anniversaries, and bad anniversaries . This was a bad one and Suzanne chose to mark the moment with a nightmare.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!😊📚💖

  3. On my blog today, I am featuring a book by Georgette Heyer, "A Civil Contract." Here, I will share the first line of chapter 10 in that same novel. "Few invitations conferred so great a distinction on the social aspirant as one to Nassington House." Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Haha what a funny first line!
    The book I'm sharing on my blog is Unblemished by Sara Ella but I'm currently reading called The Road Home by Beverly Lewis. I shared the first line last week so I'll share the first line of chapter 22 where I am right now: " The next morning, after the four o'clock milking and a nice hot breakfast, Mimi suggested Harley take a lemon pound cake over to Abram Mast's for his birthday." Cake anyone? :P (I actually don't like lemon pound cake though lol).

  6. That is a GREAT line - I can see why it's your favourite!

    I'm sharing the very long first line from A Defense of Honor from the new Haven Manor series by Kristi Ann Hunter on my blog today. It was one of those read-in-a-day books :)

    I’m currently reading Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh, a romance about a woman wanting to reconnect with the mother who abandoned her years ago. But the first line is from the viewpoint of the hero:

    He shouldn’t be here.
    A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was.

    Have a great weekend!
