Happy Friday! Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? My agenda is simple–chores and reading–and that’s exactly the kind of weekend I need.
This week I’m sharing the first line from a book written by one of my local writing group members. Until now, I had not read any of the Uncharted series, which the author describes as “historical with a sci-fi twist.” Intriguing, yes? By the way, the boxed set of the first three eBooks of that series is on sale through May 2 for $0.99 so now is a great time to pick them up!
The line I’m sharing today is from the Uncharted Beginnings series (which follows the above series).
Amazon // Goodreads
Now it’s your turn. Open the book nearest you and share the first line in the comments. Be sure and hop on over to Hoarding Books and read what others are sharing today!
I haven’t read any of the Uncharted series yet, but they are on my TBR list – They do sound intriguing! 🙂
I’m featuring As Bright as Heaven on my blog today, but I’ll share the first line from another on my TBR pile here, Quo Vadis: “Petronius woke only about midday, and as usual greatly wearied.”

Ooh! Thanks for the sale tip!
I’m featuring ‘No Less Days’ by Amanda G. Stevens on my blog today, but right now I’m reading ‘Presumption and Partiality’ by Rebekah Jones–a Pride & Prejudice retelling set in 1930s Arizona!
The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932.
Have a great weekend

Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Becky Wade’s Falling for You. I’ll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed “Amongst the Roses” by Meghan M. Gorecki
“Papa’s Home!” A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant’s spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist.”
BECCA WEIDEL says
I’m a little hooked I want to know what she wrote! lol
The book I’m sharing on my blog is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, but the book I’ll share here is the one I am currently reading called Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson: “Candlelight flickered on the medieval walls as Gisele Duchant stepped into the warmth of the nave.” Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
Thanks for the sale tip! Looks like I need to add this to my collection!
I’m featuring “Beneath a Prairie Moon” by Kim Vogel Sawyer on the blog today, but I’m going to share about the book I’m currently reading called “The Story Peddler” by Lindsay A. Franklin.
Colored ribbons of light poured from my fingers. One strand broke free and soared above the crowd’s head, glowing golden in the afternoon sun.
Have a great weekend and happy reading! 🙂

Happy Friday!!!! I’m so excited for the weekend.
I’m sharing the first line from The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd over on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from a YA novel I teach to my 9th Honors English students — Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin,
“The end came quickly, and there wasn’t any pain.”
Sci-fi twist??! That sounds super interesting. You will have to let us know how they combine both of those genres. Happy Friday! 🙂

If you read the description of the first book in the Uncharted series, you’ll get it 🙂

Jodi Hunter says
I have to try this series.

Great book! Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:
“As a vicar’s daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so.”
This is next on my to-read pile. I’ve read and enjoyed all the Uncharted stories – the futuristic sci-fi ones, and these prequels.
Over on my blog I’m sharing from Where Hope Begins by Catherine West … which I finished about four hours after starting it.
I’m now reading A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden. Here’s the first line of the Prologue:
“You and your brother are to go to the music room, close the door, and don’t come out until I say you can.”
Have a great weekend!
Our weekend plans are pretty low-key also. My little lady has dance practice tomorrow, then Sunday we are off to church, then the children’s theatre to see Curious George. All other time will be spent giggling, cuddling, reading, and being silly. Those are the best kind of weekends.
My plans are chores, reading, writing reviews and celebrating my youngest niece’s fifteenth birthday 😀
I’m sharing from my current read, The Backcountry Brides Romance Collection from Barbour Books, on my blog today. So here is the first line from the prologue of a book I plan to read soon, The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron:
“Crumbling walls were rare, beautiful things.”
Have a great weekend!
