    Happy Friday!

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, August and Everything After by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski…..

    I started wearing my grandmother’s old cat-eye glasses in June, right after my latest crush nearly crushed me.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    I have got to get my hands on this book! Thanks for sharing .I’m featuring A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith over on the blog. Here I’lll share from Keturah by Lisa T. Bergren. “In the hopes that at least one would get through, their father had sent three copies of his last letter from the West Indies; as it happened, his daughters received them all.”

    I’m going to share the first line from Part 1 Chapter 1 of Jocelyn Green’s “A Refuge Assured”
    She should be used to this by now, the way skin exposed to cold eventually lost feeling.

    I loved this one. I didn’t realize what I was getting into when I started it and almost hit pause on the audiobook and stuck it out and really enjoyed it. My current read is not CF, so no First Line this week. However, I did just realize a new Kimberly Rae Jordan book came out, so I’ll be starting that ASAP.

    I’m sharing from James Markert’s All Things Bright and Strange on my blog today. Here is the first line from Chapter 2:

    “Anna Belle was pretty as a sunrise and always dressed to the nines.”

    I loved this book!

    Paragraph 5 of page one.
    February 1909
    Bella has visited many lovely homes in London after her presentation at court and the rounds of balls and dinner parties during her first two seasons, but she’d never seen a more lavish home tha Broadlands, her family’s new country estate.
