    This is from Love You Always by Jan Editti Thompson, her 6th Savannah Sweethearts novel. I love her writing 🙂

    “We’re not hungry” five-year-old Peggy said earnestly, “we had turkey and bacon”.

    Now the fact little Peggy is talking about cat food makes it funnier!!

    “He told himself a story.” – The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

    This is the third book of the trilogy. Can’t way to see how everything plays out. It has been an awesome ride so far. #thefeelsarekillingme

    • Carrie

      i definitely need to add this trilogy to my TBR list!

      • Cara

        So good. Outside of my normal comfort zone and SO worth it.

    • Carrie

      ooo i need to check into this one! I love books set in Ireleand!

      • RachelS

        Me too (and Scotland)! 😀

        It’s part of the Matchmaker series although they can all be read as stand alone’s. Have you read any of those?

    • Carrie

      lol lol – you are on a mission to make me swoon as much as possible with all your mentioning of Aidan Turner and Drew and Richard Armitage, aren’t you? 😉

      • DeAnna Dodson

        Hee hee . . . you have uncovered my evil scheme!

        But come on! New Poldark (Aidan Turner) is so > Old Poldark (Rabbity Looking 70s Guy), how can I not?

        😀

    Let me tell you how it all really began.

    Love is Something You Do by Shery and Bobby Burnette

    • Carrie

      that is a great title! and an intriguing first line 🙂

  8. Elizabeth

    “I last attended worship service on a blustery Sunday in March, the year I turned seven.” – Jaded by Varina Denman (I’m almost half way through the book and can barely put it down!)

    • Carrie

      oh! oh! I love that book – the whole series!! Yay!

  9. Marylin Furumasu

    I CAN’T write the first line of the book I’m reading right now because I’m a beta reader for a new book by Kristen Heitzmann. I CAN say it’s fantastic and you’ll want to read it when it comes out. The first book in her new series IS out and just as good. “I Told You So.”….. Look it up!

    • Carrie

      Oooooo I have I Told You So! And the next one too!!! Yay!!!

    • Amanda J.

      I can’t wait for the undisclosed title you’re reading to release. Told You So was one of those books that sticks with you and keeps you thinking LONG after you’ve finished it–so good. You know, it may be time for a reread.

    “You know why I have called you here, do you not?” So Rare a Gift by Amber Lynn Perry.

    The book closest to me is Parade of Stories, (my childhood friend). The first story is “One Cold Day” by Elizabeth Coatsworth
    “One cold day in late November, when the first show was beginning to fall, a little boy got lost in the woods.”
    I also want to share what is on the title page.

    Books are friends-
    Come let us read…
    This is the book my mom bought before I was born. As an adult looking back, I can see where my love of books began.
