first line fridays

Next Friday is Christmas Eve Eve!! Can you believe that?!? I’m in denial.

Instead of thinking about how far behind I am, let’s grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

The book I’m featuring today is Wrapped in Red by my sweet friend Meghan Gorecki.

And the first line is…

“Magical? More like laughable.”

Don’t you adore that cover?!?

So… what’s your First Line today?

    Wrapped in Red is on my wish list!

    Here is my first line from A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann
    Noelle pressed her back into the textured wall and tensed, her breathing fast and shallow.

    Enjoy this LAST WEEKEND before Christmas. 😉

    The night was moonless, the color of black ink, with not one star twinkling from the heavens.
    First line from “A Royal Christmas Wedding” by Rachel Hauck.
    It just arrived in the mail!!!

    I cannot believe that next week is Christmas!

    I can’t wait to read this book! I pre-ordered it, and it will be loading to my Kindle tomorrow. 🙂

    Here is my first line:

    The Christmas Box
    Richard Paul Evans

    “It may be that I am growing old in this world and have used up more than my share of allotted words and eager audiences.”

    Short mewing sounds ripple the night air inside the thin wooden shack. the whimpers are soft and brand new, like the baby emitting them, and hardly muted by blankets the mum’s using to swaddle the tiny child against her chest. ~ Siren’s Song (Storm Siren #3) by Mary Weber

    I had to include the second line, as it seems seasonally appropriate when you take it out of context of the Storm Siren series 😀

  5. Andi Tubbs

    My first line comes from Regina Jennings new book For the Record

    October 1885
    Pine Gap, Missouri

    Only a limited patch of Earth could claim the privilege of belonging to Texas.

    “Wounded soldiers returned from war as heroes. Wounded nurses returned as old maids.”

    The Thorn Healer by Pepper Basham

    I have been wanting to read this one for a couple of weeks now but didn’t want to buy it in case my husband had it ordered for Christmas. I finally just flat out asked him about it. He didn’t have it but ordered it so I could read it as soon as possible! Gotta love a husband who doesn’t quite understand my book obsession but lovingly supports it!

      oh what a sweet hubby!!!! A keeper for sure! And i just adore the opening lines of that series!

    Look at you being all Chrsitmas-y. I am firmly back in Medieval England 😉

    My Fist Line is from ‘Henry III: The Son of Magna Carta’ by Matthew Lewis. And it is actually a SHORT paragraph. Oops. Happy Friday!

    “King Henry III of England is a monarch who slips from the notice of history. Many famous events took place during his reign, but few would know that he was sitting on the throne at the time they occurred. He is overshadowed by events before his rule, great problems and even greater personalities during his kingship, and by the force of will that was his son and successor.”

    It wasn’t chance. There wasn’t any part of it that happened just by chance.

    The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. I have it on audio and this is my second read. It’s an escape.

  9. Katie Donovan

    “PhD was *not* supposed to smell like this.” LOL! Here’s the second sentence for a bit of context: “Adelina Roseland dropped a box of research articles onto the floor and stifled a deep breath as the strong aroma of naturally fertilized farmland wafted in from the open window.”

    A Twist of Faith ~ Pepper Basham

    Late again! My first line comes from A Primary Decision by Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit, because there is not enough political drama in the real world. LOL!!

    “Tension crackled in the air.”

  11. Beth Erin

    I’m looking forward to reading that one! It’s on my kindle 😀

    Found this one in my mailbox yesterday:
    She was too softhearted to be an oil tycoon.
    Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade
    SQUEEE!!!
