Welcome to fabulous Friday! It’s been a busy, busy week for me at the office, so I am welcoming the weekend with wide open arms. Anyone have fun plans? I’m dog sitting/house sitting for a friend. I love doing this because I’m only a couple miles away from my place but I also feel like I’m away from the distraction of home. My weekend plans are walking the dog and lots of reading.
Including the second book in Carolyn Miller’s Promise of Hope series. For me, a good regency read is always something to look forward to.
What are you reading? Drop the first line in the comments below then hop over to Hoarding Books and find out what others are sharing this week.
Susan Dyer says
My first line comes from The Mending by Susan Lantz Simpson……..
She sensed someone had entered the room, even though she’d been dozing and hadn’t heard the whoosh of the door opening or the squeak of athletic shoes on the tile floor. Her eyes felt glued shut.
Have a great weekend and happy reading!
Becky Smith says
Happy Friday! My first line is from Dancing in the Rain by Eileen Rife and Jennifer Slattery:
“The letter was probably one more rejection Loni could add to all the others crumpled in her trash.”
Rachel @ In Between Book Pages says
Today I shared the first couple of lines from Fiona Davis’ upcoming book “The Masterpiece” on my blog. But as I’m only about 25% into the book, let me share the first few lines of the chapter I’m currently reading.
“Clara had seen Levon only twice since he’d taken her class five days earlier: once in a crowded hallway, where he’d given her a salute as he brushed by, and another time on the concourse of the terminal, where she was certain he’d spotted her but pretended not to.
His puerile behavior annoyed her. She had no way of knowing if he’d upheld his end of the bet and insisted that Mr. Lorette keep her on.”
I hope you enjoy that. Happy weekend and enjoying your reading! 😀

I’ve seen this book repeatedly across the blogosphere. I need to check it out. Here’s the first line from a book on my TBR shelf, Justice Buried by Patricia Bradley — It wasn’t too hot for 10:00 P.M. in the middle of May unless you were about to climb over the ledge of a fourteen-story building in downtown Memphis.
Happy Friday! Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright. Here I’ll share the first line from Chapter 28 of the same book:
“Dusk had settled over Gossamer Pond. The mist rolled off its surface, making the mossy green algae glow in the moonlight.”
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Nicole Santana says
Can’t wait to read this one!
Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Cara Putman’s novel A Promise Forged. Here I will share the first line from the novel I just started reading, Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar.
“The first time I climbed through a window and crept about secretly through a house, the moon sat high in the sky and I was running away from home.”
Hope you have a great weekend!
I’m hosting a baby shower for my niece in my home tomorrow. Looking forward to that! On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Secrets & Charades by Cindy Ervin Huff. Since I’m still reading the book, I will share the first two lines from chapter 8 here. “Jake finished hitching the wagon as the sun rose over the horizon. When he peered in the door of the soddie, Evangeline stood before him trying to press the wrinkles out of her green dress with her hands.” Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from a different book on my blog today, but my current lunchtime read is the second Lady Alkmene Cozy Mystery, Diamonds of Death by Vivian Conroy. Here is the first line:
“It was madness to do this on a night with a full moon. But then you had to be a little mad to do this work to begin with.”
Paula Shreckhise says
My First line is from The Best of Intentions by Susan Anne Mason:
Grace Abernathy stood at the rail of the S S Olympic, staring out over the calm expanse of the sea as the last trace of sunlight disappeared over the horizon.
Just finished Miss Serena. Am finalizing my review now!
BECCA WEIDEL says
The book I shared on my blog today is A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line from chapter 3 here: “Squinting into the fog made orange by the rising sun, I strode through the sprawling vineyard in a nightdress and my tattered old garden cloak and pondered the odd whispers of my servant.” Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time! 🙂
Hallie @ Book by Book says
I’m looking forward to reading this book!
I’m reading The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw by Christopher Healy right now, so here’s the first line: “Outlaws have too many feathers in their hats.”
Hallie @ Book by Book
Sounds like a great weekend to me! I also shared Miss Serena’s Secret on my blog today! I’ll share the first lines of Rachel Dylan’s Lone Witness, my current lunch break read, here: “Guilty. That’s the only possible verdict.”
Caryl Kane says
Happy Friday! My first line comes from The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
It was dark where she crouched but the little girl did as she’d been told.
I’m also sharing the first line of Miss Serena’s Secret on my blog, so I’ll share the first line from the book I’m currently reading: Justice by Emily Conrad:
“Snow floated onto Main Street, each flake large enough to catch the breeze like a parachute.”
