First Line Friday - July 12, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

My goal this summer is to work on my "to be read" list/shelf - the backlog, not anything new I added. However, I recently discovered a love of Amish fiction and I've read such good reviews about this book that I came up with all kinds of justifications this week to buy it. Justifications such as there were Amish men working on the house renovations across the street therefore I should be reading an Amish book and I have several appointments coming up where I will be sitting in a waiting room and this book would fit so well in my purse. I'm sure you understand! :) Next up on my reading list is Andrew by Jennifer Beckstrand.
 


"A muscle pulled tight across Mary's abdomen, creating a line of pain from her hip to her abdomen."

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. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first couple of lines from No Greater Love by Gina Holder. It's a really good book! I'm currently on chapter 25, so I'll share the first line from there.

    "If his sister fluffed his pillow one more time, Hamilton was going to lose his last shred of sanity."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. 😀❤📚

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Edge of Truth" by Kimberly Rose Johnson:

    "The hair on Kara Nelson's neck prickled as she sat behind the wheel of her car parked near the Miami Beach Marina. Something wasn't right."

  5. I hope Mary is okay? That pain doesn’t sound fun!

    Today I’m sharing on my blog the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet W. Ferguson.

    Love, like art, took on different forms with each creator.
