First Line Friday - August 30, 2019


Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books

My first line today comes from Reunited In the Rockies by Mindy Obenhaus. I'm planning to read this book soon. I think the cover is such a peaceful scene.


"Twenty-four hours ago, Jude Stephens had his life figured out."

I'm wondering what happened to change that.

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!

    I shared the first few lines of my current read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron on my blog. But, here, I’ll share the first lines of a book I recently finished – City of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    “He was an easy mark.

    Nahri smiled behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her tall. The younger one glanced anxiously down the alley while the older man – her client – sweated in the cool dawn air. Save for the men, the alley was empty; fajr had already been called and anyone devout enough for public prayer – not that there were many in her neighborhood – was already ensconced in the small mosque at the end of the street.”

    Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great weekend!

  2. A teenage boy named Lenny rode silently through pristine Iowan fields, gliding along on a set of tracks.

  3. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson: "Anne Norris knew two things for certain. Some things could be forgiven. And some things most certainly could not."

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet Ferguson: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/29/first-line-friday-99/. Currently I'm finishing up Finding Miss Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano. I'll share a line from that book here. 🙂

    "As we hurried through the hallway, his grip on my arm tightened until I half expected to hear my bones snap."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  5. Sorry I didn't get around yesterday! The book I shared on my blog this week was In the Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse but I am now currently reading Out of the Ashes which is the next book in the series. I just recently started but I'll share the first line from chapter 2 here: "Gazing down at the coffin that housed his father's physical body, Jean-Michel counted the scoops of dark soil as they hit the lid and began to cover its surface." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

    "Elijah McNamara gave the lightbulb one final gentle turn then glanced down at the man holding the ladder for him."
