First Line Friday - June 8, 2018


Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! I hope June is starting off well for you! 

I'm sharing the first line from Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh today. I think the cover is one of the prettiest I've seen! I also really enjoyed the book and you can read my review here.



"He shouldn't be here."


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 FLF comes from a book I will be reading next, Falling for the Cowgirl by Tina Radcliffe.

    “I like Zeb Turner for the assistant ranch foreman position.” Travis Maxwell looked across the conference table at his sisters, Lucy and Emma, hoping for confirmation, and then shoved another cinnamon roll into his mouth.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊

  3. That is just such a pretty cover! I love the flowers :)

    Over on my blog I’m featuring Among The Poppies by J’Nell Ciesielski. Here I'll share the first line from Chapter 22.
    “The wrench spun like a dial, blurring faster and faster until it flew off the side of the engine and cartwheeled in the dirt.”

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

  5. I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:

    “A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”

    Happy Friday!

  7. Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.

    “Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lexi Blake’s new release “Order of Protection” on my blog. Check out to see the start of her newest series!

  8. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first paragraph to This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller. Here I will share the first two lines from the book I'm currently reading, I Am My Beloved by Caryl McAdoo. It's a retelling of Song of Solomon.

    "Abishag held the cups level and took small ladylike steps, careful not to slosh. She grinned then placed the wine -- except water really, her mother wouldn't allow her real wine -- on the stone table."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend with lots of quality reading time! 😁

  9. Happy Friday!
    The Book I'm sharing on my blog is Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan but I'm currently listening to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and I'll share the first line from that here: "We slept in what had once been the gymnasium." Happy reading this weekend! :)
