Ah, Friday! Even though I had a short work week, I’m happy the weekend is almost here once again. Somehow extra time off translates to extra chores and projects for me. But I did get some extra reading in there, too.
Right now, I’m in a romantic suspense mode (reading one book and listening to another on audiobook). This week I’m sharing the first line from the book I’m currently reading.
What are you reading right now? Share the first line in the comments then hop over to Hoarding Books to see what books others are highlighting.
Ooh, this sounds super interesting with that first line. Adding this to my TBR.
I’m sharing about “By the Waters of Babylon” by Mesu Andrews on the blog today, but I’m currently reading “Where the Fire Falls” by Karen Barnett so my first line will come from there.
Olivia Rutherford applied lip rouge the same way she painted -with bold, broad strokes. Anything to distract from the truth.
Happy Friday and hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with reading excellent books!

I shared the first line of the 8th book from the In Death series, Conspiracy in Death. But here, I’ll share with you the first line of one of the books I’m currently reading. This one is from Kit Frick’s “See All the Stars.”
JUNE, SOPHOMORE SUMMER
We went to the party because Ret insisted. I was perfectly happy right where we were: lying on our backs in Jenni’s sprawling front yard, building our best-ever summer playlist, telling time by the dandelion clocks until the sky was a white haze of down. We were idle and airy. We had perfected the summer loaf.
Hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend! 😀

My first lines come from Carolina Mercy by Regina Rudd Merrick…..
Lucy Dixon wanted it to be a bad dream, but it wasn’t. Auto pilot. It was the only way she was getting through this. Daddy was dead.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!

Happy Friday! My first line is from Other People’s Children by Ellen Fannon (which I have laughed so hard through the little bit I started reading): Prologue:
“Why are children so childish?” Robin groused to herself as she sat valiantly attempting to put two coherent thoughts together for her newspaper column that was due tomorrow.
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from the third Lady Alkmene Callender Cosy Mystery on my blog today. Here are the first lines from the fourth, Fatal Masquerade by Vivian Conroy:
“Can’t this thing go any faster?” Denise Hargrove snapped at the driver. During the drive she’d consulted her watch over and over again, exuding a nervous energy Lady Alkmene Callender found hard to place.
Great first line! Happy reading!
