Happy Friday! Welcome to another edition of First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! This week’s edition is “in like a lion, out like a lamb”. I think that holds true for where I live. The beginning of March, we had a TON of snow. The forecast for next week? Well, it’s looking pretty good. Dare I say the temperatures are on the rise, and we may see the thermometer hit almost 50!? After being cold and snowy for so long, I am definitely ready.
So in keeping with the theme, I decided to go with an old classic. I loved this book when I was a kid. I probably read it about a hundred times. CS Lewis is just a fabulous writer. I have to tell you though that I have not seen the movie for this. I’m scared that it will be worse than my imagination! Let’s face it, our imaginations are always way better than anything we can see on the big screen. Maybe one day, way in the distant future. Unless some of you convince me otherwise!
Today’s first line comes from………
“Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.”
Remember the days when a lot of books started out with “Once upon” or “Once there”? Not that first lines of today aren’t great, because they are. But there’s something nostalgic about seeing those words for me.
Now it’s your turn to share your first line! Grab the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments. Don’t forget to check out what everyone else is reading at Hoarding Books!
