First Line Friday - May 18, 2018

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! The book I've been reading this week is First Impressions by Debra White Smith. I'm enjoying it so far!


"'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a wife.'"

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!😎

    My First Line comes from a book I'm reading now, The Ones We Choose by Julie Clark.....

    If loneliness were a color, it would be the deep purple of my eight year old's shirt as he walks solitary laps around the school track.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚📚

  3. My first line (plus some)
    Lou hoisted up her gown and winced as she tottered across the parking lot. The sparkly four-inch heels had looked so pretty in the box, but they felt like mortar and pestle grinding each bone in her foot. She missed her green Crocs.

  5. One of my favorite first lines! I will have to read your book!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Robin Mason’s The Silent Song of Winter.

    ” The sounds of the swamp in winter would scare another person but not me.”

  6. Happy Friday!

    Today, I am showcasing Karen Barnett's novel Where the Fire Falls (#2 in her Shadows of the Wilderness series) over on my blog. Here I will share the first lines from chapter 2.

    "Clark grunted as he jostled the bags under his arm and clambered up the stairs. At her disposal? First change he got, he'd be setting this little minx straight."

    Have a great weekend!

    The book I'm sharing this week on my blog is Grace in Strange Disguise but here I'll share from The Calling of Emily Evans by Janette Oke, which is the book I featured for my Memorable Monday post this week: "Emily Evans lifted a slender hand and pushed back a wisp of wayward brown hair." Have a great weekend! :)

  8. This series is so tempting! I wish I could squeeze it in! I'm currently reading Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett. Here are the first couple of lines from chapter 10...
    "Clark strode into the Glacier Point Hotel. A burning sensation simmered in his gut, like his best campfire stew straight from the pot."

  9. I'm sharing from a favorite re-read on my blog, but I'll share from my current read here - a novel set in the 1920’s, Ramble and Roar by Catie Cordero:

    “I wasn’t looking for death. It found me. That’s what I tell myself.”

    Happy Friday!
