This post to twofold: it’s First Line Friday, becoming a First-Letter-Friday with this book! AND, it’s an announcement of an informal read-along.

Starting April 2, myself and some awesome bookish friends will be re-reading Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay and discussing it via Twitter using #DMKral! You’re invited! It’s been WAY too long since I’ve read this story. Since it was Katherine’s debut AND my first introduction to epistolary fiction, it’s time to revisit. (Plus our Twitter read-alongs are a highlight of life!)

Dear Mr. Knightley

First Letter:

Your turn! Find the book closest to you and share your first line in the comments! Then, head over to Hoarding Books for the linky and visit other FLF posts!

  1. Happy Friday!
    My FLF is from Safely Home by Randy Alcorn. “Three men watched intently as peculiar events occurred, one right after the other, on opposite sides of the globe.”
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter! 🙂

  2. Loved that book! Have fun re-reading and discussing.

    On my blog I am sharing from A Loyal Heart by Jody Hedlund, but here I will share from a new addition to my TBR pile, The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd. “Alarm’s menacing sting pricked Kate Dearborn’s consciousness and hurried her steps.” Happy Friday!

  3. That was an interesting book. I enjoyed it!

    My frist paragraph is from: Life on the Porcelain Edge by C.E. Hilbert

    Tessa Tarrington’s life was in the toilet.
    Job? FIRED
    Dad? HEART ATTACK
    Current residence? CHILDHOOD BEDROOM
    Love life? NON-EXISTENT.
    Her life was swirling in the bowl, just waiting for the ultimate flush.

    It’s humorous but deals with hard issues.

    Easter blessings!
