And 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.
I’m continuing my feature of recent award nominees/finalists that I haven’t previously used for a FLF post.
The book I’m featuring today is If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock
a nominee for the 2017 RT Reviewer’s Choice Awards!
And the first line is…
“The police lights in my rearview mirror almost destroy me.”
Congratulations, Terri, on the much-deserved nomination!!
If you haven’t yet read the If I Run series, you absolutely must check it out!
Let me know the first line of the book closest to you & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!
If you’re a blogger or just a social media-er, we’d love for you to join us too!
Awesome series! I am reading Criss Cross by C.C. Warrens.
The ominous sound of something scraping across the cement behind me raised the hairs on the back of my neck.
eeep! That’s got my attention 😀
Arrgghh! I still have to read the last one in this series. I need to know how it ends!!!!
I’m featuring ‘No Less Days’ by Amanda G. Stevens on my blog today, but right now I’m reading ‘Presumption and Partiality’ by Rebekah Jones–a Pride & Prejudice retelling set in 1930s Arizona!
The sun beat down cheerfully on that last day of August in the year 1932.
Have a great weekend 🙂
oh my gosh, Katie – that last book is AMAZING!! it’s so intense!
THEN: JULY 18, 1992
The faint voice floated towards me.
By Hannah Mary McKinnon
eeep! that sounds like a great read!
Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Becky Wade’s Falling for You. I’ll share with you here the first line from a book I recently read and enjoyed “Amongst the Roses” by Meghan M. Gorecki
“Papa’s Home!” A nameless shiver of dread worked its way up Margaret Bryant’s spine, causing her fingers to shake as she checked the chatelaine watch at her waist.”
I love this series. The last book is so good!
As for the first line of the book, I’m reading:
“My Jean-Marc’s uncle was married to an English woman, and she told us once, a very long time ago, that in this world there are men of two kinds.” This is from the book, The Pretender: A Blackguard in Disguise (The Caselli Family Series) by Ta’ Mara Hanscom
This author is new to me and I’m enjoying the book so far.
Happy Friday! I need to read this series now!
My FLF comes from a book I’m going to be reading shortly, The Good Daughter by Diane Chamberlain…….
No one wanted to work with the man in the wheelchair . “There’s something strange about that guy,” one of my fellow students warned me in the hall outside the PT ward. “If they try to assign you to him, say no.”
Have a great weekend and happy reading!??
i love her books!!
Right?? SO good.
The morning light had not yet tinted the June sky with a promise of a new day as Christy Miller hurried down the cobblestone street of Basel, Switzerland. – Until Tomorrow, Robin Jones Gunn.
Christy Miller! yay!
He kissed her again. “Don’t lose that number, Jacey,” he said, the rain beating down on both of them, stinging and biting their bodies. The Sweet Smell of Magnolias and Memories by Celeste Fletcher McHale
i want to read that one soon!
Catch a Falling Star by Christine M. Butler
“When I was 12 years old I sneaked out of my house to watch the Venus showers.”
that sounds like an interesting book!
Happy Friday! My first line is from Miss Wilton’s Waltz by Josi S. Kilpack, which will be released May 1st:
“As a vicar’s daughter, Lenora knew that doing the right thing was not always easy, in fact it was rarely so.”
i can’t wait to read that one – i love Josi’s books!
