First Line Friday!

Happy Friday reader friends! Hope you’re having a good week. This was my birthday week, and I just have to share how lucky I am. My husband and daughter did very good on the presents this year 🙂 First, I got the new Beauty and the Beast movie. I could watch it 100 times! Then, the first edition of The Pioneer Woman Magazine. I just love her!! She’s so down to earth and sweet, and she makes food that I can actually make and eat! Next I got a beautiful bracelet with a music sign on it. My daughter picked it out because she knows how important music is to me. And lastly, a new dehydrator! Funny story about that….I accidentally ruined my old one by placing it on a tablecloth. Go ahead, I know you want to laugh. I did! Don’t worry, I got rid of the tablecloth…..not going to let that happen again!

The book world has been great too. I’ve been busy finishing up reading the books I need to judge for the INSPY awards, and trying to squeeze review books in between. Just finished the last one today, so watch out, review books are going to be read in full force now! Today’s first line comes from the talented Christy Barritt. Her latest book Distorted comes out on Tuesday. Make sure you check it out! I first read a book by Christy when Disillusioned came out, and I loved it! This book is just as good!

Today’s First Line is…….

First Line from the Prologue: Tennyson Walker’s mission was clear: find Dante Torres, take him down by whatever means necessary, capture the insurgents, and get out.

First Line from Chapter One: “You’re going to do great, Mallory.”


There you have it guys! And now it’s your turn! Open the book nearest to you and share the first line in the comments! And make sure to check out what my friends are reading this week! Happy Friday!

    First line from ‘To Tame the Wind’ by Regan Walker
    A small scraping sound exploded in the still night like a pistol shot setting Claire’s every nerve on end.

  2. I like Christy Barritt books! Happy Friday! My first line is from Karen Krist’s new LIH book The Engagement Charade, coming out July 1st (and it’s REALLY good!): “Alexander Copeland’s one goal in life was to be left alone.”

    1. And I did just spell Karen Kirst wrong! Oh my, not enough coffee yet this morning!

  3. Sounds like you had a fantastic birthday!! I’m currently reading (and loving) All Of You by Sarah Monzon. “Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.”

  4. Happy Birthday!!! 🙂 My first line is from “Missing,” by Lisa Harris.

    “Nikki Boyd slid out of her white Mini Cooper as two bagged bodies were being wheeled from the one-story house nestled in on of Nashville’s nicer suburbs.” 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday week! Great first line. I love the cover!

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

  6. Happy Friday and birthday week!
    My first line is:
    “It started with a phone call, deceptively simple and easy to ignore.” ~All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda.

  7. Happy Birthday! Those sound like great gifts from people who know and love you. 🙂
    I admit I’m a bit jealous you’re reading for the Inspy Awards. That must be so amazing!

  8. Happy birthday! (Love the Beauty and the Beast movie!)

    I recently started Three Little Words by Melissa Tagg. “Seven years shouldn’t feel like such a gaping span of time.”

  9. I’m disappointed I couldn’t squeeze this one in! Happy reading!

    Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.
