First Line Friday - May 24, 2019



Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! I am extra excited this Friday because I'm starting a one week "staycation" today. Yay!!! I went to the bookstore and purchased two books and have a novella lined up on my Kindle. 

One of the books I bought is A Welcome at Our Door by Amy Clipston. I am proof that blog tours with JustRead Publicity Tours work! I read the first two chapters on someone's blog post who was part of the JustReads tour for this book and then I was hooked! Book blogs in general have helped me find SO MANY great books that I don't think I would otherwise have found.  

If the first two chapters of this book are any indication, I am in for a treat as I continue reading!



"Cindy Riehl hummed as she hung a pair of her father's trousers on the clothes-line, and then she swept a lock of golden-brown hair escaping her prayer covering away from her eyes."


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. I have this book out from my library and I'm hoping to read it this weekend. I'm sharing from A Modest Independence by Mimi Matthews today. Here is the first line from Chapter 10:

    "Jenny stood on the deck of the Indus, watching the ancient city of Alexandria come into view."

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  3. The low, keening wail reverberated from the walls of Nicole Dyer's apartment as fear skittered through her body.

  4. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "The Black Veil" by June Belfie:

    "Rebecca Gingerich rested her hands on the the deep milk-white sill of the kitchen window and peered out from the clapboard farmhouse she'd been born in nearly twenty-three years ago to the day."

  5. Hope you enjoy!

    My first line this week comes from Flight of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse, but I'm also listening to Great Expectations by Charles Dickens in audio book format at the moment, so I'm going to share the first line from Chapter 51:

    What purpose I had in view when I was hot on tracing out and proving Estella's parentage, I cannot say.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I really enjoyed that one hope you do too :)
    Sorry I'm a little late coming around this weekend! The book I shared on my blog this week is Vigilant by Sara Davison but it's also the book I'm currently reading so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: "Daniel stared at the computer screen like he'd been doing for hours, his mind racing." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)
