First Line Friday - July 19, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

Today I'm sharing the first line from Sweet on You by Becky Wade. Is there anyone out there besides me who hasn't read this yet? I'm hoping to read it soon. I am a huge fan of this author's books!  


"Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he'd seen her last."

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.

  4. Happy Friday!

    On my blog I'm sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecelia by Carolyn Miller: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/18/first-line-friday-94/.

    Today, I'm currently reading The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden. It's an excellent story that I highly recommend! I'm just starting chapter 34, so I'll share from there.

    "Gray rarely took the time to read The Washington Post first thing in the morning."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend!!! 😀❤📚

  6. Sweet on You was brilliant!

    I'm sharing the first line from Underestimating Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller on my blog today - it seems to be a popular choice!

    I'm currently reading Fatal Strike by DiAnn Mills. Here's the first line:

    Special Agent Leah Riesel scanned the headlines on her phone.

    That's a little underwhelming, but the first chapter includes a shoot-out in a hostage situation, so it ramps up the action quickly.

    Happy reading!

  7. Happy Friday! Since I’m sharing from chapter 1 of Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham on my blog today, here is the first line from the prologue:

    “After letting an involuntary squeal escape, Penny pulled the yellowed papers closer and pressed her lips to them.”

  8. I haven't read this one yet either. Hope you get to read it soon and enjoy it!

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Storm Rising by Ronie Kendig but I'm currently reading Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: "Marley was sitting by the door in the living room when Travis returned." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! :)

  9. Me! I have the print book sitting on my book shelf waiting to be read. :) I’m sharing on my blog the first line from At First Spark by Liwen Y. Ho.

    Darren Spark never imagined that one person could make him feel so happy and sad all at the same time.
