It’s Friday (and I have the day off which makes it even better). I’m still house/dog sitting but that ends tomorrow, so I’m going to kick back and enjoy spending today reading.
A few books I’ve been looking forward to reading released this week, including the final book in Ronie Kendig’s Tox Files. And this time they’re hunting down Goliath’s sword.
Now it’s your turn. Grab the book nearest you and drop the first line in the comments. Then hop on over to Hoarding Books and check out what others are sharing this week.

My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, Oh My Stars by Sally Kilpatrick.
And it came to pass in those days, that a decree went out from my mother that I would be playing the Virgin Mary in the Dollar General drive-through Nativity whether I liked it or not.
Haha! I love those first lines and can’t wait to read this book!
Have a great weekend and happy reading!

I shared the first line of Veronica Roth’s Carve the Mark on my blog today. Here, though, I’ll share the book I’ve just started to read – A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.
“Once upon a time, a little girl helplessly watched as liquid gold spun a web across her tiny frame, racing to wrap her up in an icy cocoon.”
I hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend and happy reading!
Hallie @ Book by Book says
Ooh, great book!
I’m reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller right now, so here’s the first line: “It was love at first sight.”

Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:
“I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring.”
On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

The book I shared on my blog this week is Auschwitz Lullaby but it’s also what I just finished reading so I’ll share my favorite quote from the book here: “Sometimes we have to lose everything to find what is most important. When life robs us of what we thought we could not live without and leaves us standing naked before reality, the essential things that had always been invisible take on their true value.” Hope you have a great weekend!

Over on my blog, I’m showcasing the first line from Carolyn Miller’s new novel, Miss Serena’s Secret. It’s SO good. I’m almost finished with the book, so here I will share the first line of chapter 26.
“I cannot help you.”
A bit blunt and harsh! Lol.
I hope you’re having an awesome weekend filled with great reading time. ❤
I have a few Ronie Kendig books on my TBR that I’m looking forward to digging into. I’ll have to add this one to my wishlist! I hope you can stop by:
