It’s time for a new edition of First Line Fridays hosted by the Hoarding Books blog!

You all know I love any combination of story and food, especially when I can eat while reading :). This upcoming foodie fiction release from author Carla Laureano made its way to me this week, so I thought it was time to hint at the story within for First Line Friday! The Saturday Night Supper Club releases February 6th from Tyndale.

  1. Loved this book! Well, it was by Carla Laureano, so that’s no surprise.

    I’m about to start reading The Boy in the Hoodie, a young adult novel by debut Australian author Catriona McKeown. Here’s the first line:

    Before I met him, there wasn’t much I knew about the boy in the hoodie. He seemed to live above the rules.

  2. Can’ wait to get to this one. I’ve heard lots of good things!

    I’m featuring the first line from the SECOND chapter of Mesu Andrews’ ‘Isaiah’s Daughter’ on my blog (since the first line of chapter one is on Hoarding Books this week), but right now I’m going to share the first line from ‘Fatal Mistake’ by Susan Sleeman:

    “He was coming for her, and he was close.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Heather Day Gilbert’s latest “Guilt by Association” It is the 3rd book in her Murder in the Mountains series. I’ll share here the first line from chapter 4.
    “Without a doubt, the number five trailer is the prettiest place in Scots’ Hollow.”
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I can’t wait to read this! My copy just arrived in the mail the other day as well. 🙂

    I’m sharing about The Melody of the Soul by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but I’ll share a first line from a book on my soon-to-read list here.

    Your first thought upon picking up this book is probably: How can a person born without any limbs consider himself to to be the hands and feet of Jesus on this Earth?
    -Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children by Nick Vujicic

    Happy weekend!

  5. Loved this one! I’ve been telling everyone to go get it.
    The snow in middle Tennessee melted enough that my mailman finally showed up with a few packages in hand (a few of the books I’ve been waiting on). I pulled the first line to share from one of those:
    Her head throbbed and grogginess gripped her.
    –Thread of Revenge by Elizabeth Goddard

    • Yay for bookmail! (and hopefully a safe snowy time!) I’m super excited to read it soon.

      Happy weekend!

  6. Sounds interesting. The book I’m sharing on my blog this week is Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy. I will share here the first line from a children’s book I just finished reading by A. Lynn Basset called The Boy and The Clock Book. “Tick-tock, tick-tock. Only three minutes stood between Charlie Higgins and the best summer ever!” Have a great weekend!

  7. I can’t wait to read this one! Happy Friday! My first line is from Callum’s Compass by Sara L. Foust:

    “A persistent knock at the front door dragged Kat Williams awake.”

  8. yaaaaaaaay for Carla’s new book!

    My current first line is from The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright –

    “Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.”

  9. I recently won an ARC copy. I’m looking forward to reading it soon.

    PROLOGUE

    Two Years Earlier

    Renee huddled in the garden shed in her pajamas and tried to hear him over the pounding of her heart in her ears. – Beneath Copper Falls by Colleen Coble

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

    • Oh yay! Enjoy it when you do!

      And that’s an attention-getting first line! Colleen knows how to keep a reader in suspense 🙂 .

  10. I’ve read a lot of good things about this book. I will definitely have to check it out.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog, I am featuring Brett Armstrong’s novel Destitutio Quod Remissio. It’s an interesting read so far. Here I will post the first lines from chapter four of this book.

    “The streets were filled beyond the usual that day, or perhaps it only appeared so to Marcus. The market district was expansive enough to accommodate thousands. Over it looked the tall stone buildings surrounding the huge open Forum that was the city’s center for centuries. All of the grand structures were washed white by the noon’s radiance and loomed large over the transactions of Rome’s citizens.”
