  1. Today at my blog, I featured the first line of Beth Revis’ latest release, Give the Dark My Love. Here, though, I will be sharing the first line of my next read, Broken Things by Lauren Oliver.

    “Before we were the Monsters of Brickhouse Lane – before everyone from Connecticut to California knew us by that tagline, and blogs ran pictures of our faces, and searching our names led to sites that crashed from all the names led to sites that crashed from all the traffic – we were just girls, and there were only two of us.”

    Hope you enjoy the weekend! Happy reading! ❤️📚 😀

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from A Time to Love by Marion Ueckermann:

    “You can do this. You’ve done it a thousand times before.”

  3. Happy Friday! I’m sharing about “This Is The Day” by Tim Tebow over on my blog today. I’m currently reading “Ours for a Season” by Kim Vogel Sawyer so I’ll be sharing my first line from there.

    Marty followed her husband to the front door, keeping enough distance between them to prevent bumping her knee against the bulky suitcase that hung from his hand.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday!!! My first line is from Love Unexpected by Jody Hedlund (her 2014 release).

    “The blast of a gunshot awoke Emma Chambers.”

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Roseanna M. White’s An Hour Unspent. Here I’ll share with you the first line from Kristi Ann Hunter’s novella A Legacy of Love from The Christmas Heirloom Collection.
    “From a purely rational standpoint, Sarah Gooding should have been ecstatic with her present position.”
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Killer Classics by Kym Roberts……

    “Sugar did it.” Sugar’s mouth dropped open, and her eyes nearly popped out of her head at Reba Sue’s accusation. “Sugar didn’t kill anyone,” Leila argued. “The woman traps scorpions at the bar and releases them outside.” Leila shuddered, her round body jiggling from head to toe. “Stupid critters belong under a boot heel.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕📚💕

  7. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Lynn Austin’s novel Legacy of Mercy. I just started the book today and I am only on chapter two, so I will share the first line from there.

    “I don’t know how to answer my son Jakob.”

    Makes me want to read on! 😊

    Hope you have an excellent day, and a relaxing weekend filled with great reading!

  8. I’m sharing from an upcoming read, The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck, over on my blog today. Here are the first lines from the prologue, set during the American Revolution:

    “He must finish. He must. Stumbling, he fell to the damp earth of the maple swamp with the click-slap of musket fire ringing through the cold dew, his breath billowing.”

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  9. Happy Friday! On my blog, I’m featuring the book I just finished reading, “The Awakening” by Tamara Leigh. Here I will share the first line from the book I’m currently reading, “The Unwanted Suitor” by Michelle Pennington. There is a prologue, but I’ll share the first line from Chapter 1. “Cornelia Greystone glanced at the ormolu clock that graced the wall over her dressing table and her whole body tensed with urgency.” Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. I’m featuring lines from Susan Stoker’s Justice for Hope on my blog today. Hope you can stop by!

    Here, I am featuring lines from Dare to Love Again by Maddie Taylor. Here is the first line of chapter 13.

    “Esme went to work the next day, determined to keep her mind focused on the million and one things she had to do rather than letting more sexy Finn daydreams distract her.”

    Happy Reading!
