First Line Friday - June 1, 2018

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! It's hard to believe it's the first Friday in June! Do you have any special plans you are looking forward to this weekend (besides reading, of course)? 

My first line today comes from A Stolen Heart by Amanda Cabot. I read the first book in this series, A Borrowed Dream, a couple of months ago and loved it. (You can read my review here.) I think the cover of this book is so sweet! I am very much looking forward to reading A Stolen Heart soon! 



"No matter what anyone said, she wouldn't believe this was a mistake."

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! Wow, I wonder what she is doing??

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading shortly, Room on the Porch Swing by Amy Clipston......

    Allen Lambert rolled onto his side and yawned. His eyes blinked open , and his large but dark bedroom came into clear focus. The green numerals on his battery-operated digital clock read 2: 12. What had awakened him so early?

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚

  4. I missed book one in this series, but enjoyed the second one! Yes, I'm one of those people who has no problem reading a series out of order :)

    More than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer is on my reading agenda this weekend, so I'll share the first lines from that: 1879--Fannin County, TX
    "Don't lose heart, children. We have several strong families lined up in Bonham. I'm sure we'll find good homes for each of you."

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  6. Prologue
    Bruce fumbled behind his ears, adjusted the elastic band necessary to hold his Santa Claus beard in place. His salt-and-pepper hair was mostly white around temples, the only places not covered by a traditional Santa hat, so he fit the part well.

  7. I wish it was more common to wear dresses and aprons, I love my sweatpants and all but those dresses are just so pretty! I just finished reading A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter... "Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brook's and White's, was bored."

    Happy reading!

  8. Happy Friday! My first line is from Mail-Order Bride Switch by Dorothy Clark:

    "Garret Stevenson kicked the snow off his boots, climbed the steps to the roofed platform of the Union Pacific Railroad station and stopped."

  9. My first lines come from Jana Aston’s Good Girl.

    “‘We’re not leaving this bar until you kiss someone.’” Payton says this as if we were in the midst of having a conversation about me kissing someone. We weren’t. I nod all the same because we’re nest friends and I’m used to this kind of outburst from her.”

    I’m featuring lines from Alessandra Torre’s upcoming release Even Money on my blog today. Drop by to check them out!

  10. One of my current reads is A Proposal to Die For, the first Lady Alkmene Cosy Mystery by Vivian Conroy:

    'Marry me.' The whispered words reached Lady Alkene Callender's ears just as she was reaching for the gold lighter on the mantelpiece to relight the cigarette in her ivory holder.

    Have a great weekend!

  12. This looks like an interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m sharing about “No One Ever Asked” by Katie Ganshert on the blog, but I’m currently reading, “The Weaver’s Daughter” by Sarah E. Ladd.

    Alarm’s menacing sting picked Kate Dearborne’s consciousness and hurried her steps.

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!
