First Line Friday - May 17, 2019



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! Do you have special plans for the weekend? I am planning to go to the greenhouse and get some summer vegetables for planting and some petunias to put in pots. I love being able to pop outside in the morning and pick some veggies for that day's salad! Of course I'm also hoping to get in some reading time, too.

I'm currently reading A Tender Hope by Amanda Cabot. It's the third book in the Cimarron Creek Trilogy and I loved the first two books in this series. 



"She was free."


Now it's your turn! Share 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. The crimson of the rag Charity Skells removed from between her legs was too bright. Blood soaked the long strips of muslin. The painfully thin woman bent into herself, her arms crossed over her empty womb.

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from "When He Returns" by author Kimberly Rae Jordan, which I haven't started, but hope to start reading soon:

    Prologue
    "Dalton Callaghan stared at the gleaming wood casket at the front of the chapel, the profile of his friend just barely visible over the edge as he lay there."

  3. I'm so very glad today is Friday! It has been a long week! Over on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Michelle Griep's new book, The Noble Guardian. Here I'll share the first line of a book that is on my #TBR mountain.

    "Tommy, wait!" Carly Blair screeched as she bounded off the depot platform after her brother.

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first couple of lines from The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. It's a fabulous story that I highly recommend. Currently, I am just starting Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by the fantastic Bethany Turner so I will share a line from that book.

    I hope your weekend is a great one. Happy reading! 🤗💙📚

    On my blog today I shared the first line from Living Lies by Natalie Walters. Here I'll hare the first line from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith which I just received in the mail yesterday :) "The teacher looked at his scroll, light dancing in little ringlets over the words from the flickering candle at his side." Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading!

  7. Very pretty cover.
    My plans for the weekend... it all depends on what news I receive today. ;)
    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from The Social Tutor by Sally Britton.
    Here, I’ll share the line from the top of the page I’m currently reading:
    In the dark, he had to imagine her expression, though he thought it must be one of eagerness, likely with one of her larger smiles curving her pink lips upward.

    "The second day in Oxford arrived, luminescent, the honey-hues of sunlight falling from the leaves to settle on the grass like spilled paint."
