♥ Happy GOOD Friday! ♥

Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.

And no – I promise I didn’t just accidentally post last week’s FLF again today.
I’m not being lazy – I’m being Easter-y.  You’ll understand in a moment.

The book I’m featuring (again) today is The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Since I gave the first line last week, today – in the spirit of Good Friday &  Easter Sunday – I’m sharing a line from much later in the book.

“She (the White Witch) would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery was killed in a traitor’s stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backward.”

Thankful today for a Savior who arrested death on my behalf. Death lost. Grace won. ♥

Let me know the first line of the book closest to you & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  2. This weekend I’m reading A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot which is what I’m sharing on my blog and what I’ll share here “It was only a dream.”

    Happy Easter!

    “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is my very favorite book . . . ever, because of lines just like the one you shared.

    My frist paragraph is from: Life on the Porcelain Edge by C.E. Hilbert

    Tessa Tarrington’s life was in the toilet.
    Job? FIRED
    Current residence? CHILDHOOD BEDROOM
    Love life? NON-EXISTENT.
    Her life was swirling in the bowl, just waiting for the ultimate flush.

    It’s humorous but deals with hard issues.

    Easter blessings!

    My next book is Honeysuckle Dreams by Denise Hunter.

    Playing house was just a little too easy for Hope Daniels.

    Happy Easter!

  6. Grace won! I love that!

    I shared a different first line on my blog, but here’s the first line of my current read: “Aven peered down at the letter again, noted the address written in Aunt Dorothe’s hand, then looked back to the wooden sign that was staked into the ground.” -my ARC of Sons of Blackbird Mountain by Joanne Bischof

    Serenade by Heather McKenzie

    My lungs burned, sweat stung my eyes, and every muscle screamed, but running was an escape from my over-controlled life and the rush of adrenaline and fresh mountain air a drug I couldn’t get enough of.
