June 24, 2016 First Line Fridays, Kristy Cambron 43

first line fridays

I’m so glad it’s Friday! Are you?

Time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!


This week, instead of the first line of the book, let’s do something crazy and comment with the first line of page 24 (being as it’s the 24th of June and all).

The book I’m featuring today is The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambron.

the ringmaster's wife

And the first line from page 24 is….

“And you should meet it head-on.”

So… what’s your First Line (from page 24) on this Friday?

Let me know in the comments and then head over to these friends to see their First Lines:

    A white-haired man stood on the top rung of a ladder that reached to the very top of one of the huge vats of fermenting wine.

    Not very exciting compared to some of the comments!

    “Adreano was intelligent enough to be aware that there might be a contradiction inherent in these twinned sources of ire, but he was also young enough and had drunk a more than sufficient quantity of khav laced with Senzian brandy, for that awareness to remain well below the level of his conscious thoughts.”
