It’s time for another first line Friday post, hosted by Hoarding Books! Today’s special edition of first line Friday is favorite genres. If you’re like me, your favorite genre changes monthly. Scratch that, it changes weekly. One week I could be loving on Amish fiction. Another week I could be obsessed with suspense, and another week historical. And let’s not forget all the other genres out there! I think from now on when people ask me, I’m just going to say that my favorite genre is Christian fiction. Period. I love all the genres really. So how do I decide what to do for this particular post?
Instead I thought about a book that represents by favorite thing ever. Well, besides Jesus, family, church and reading. Oh and baking. Ha – I have a lot of favorites lol. I have a problem friends. I may need intervention on this one. You see, I’m a Christmasaholic. Yes, this is a real thing. I cannot even explain to you the joy I feel inside when I think about Christmas and everything about it. Yes, I am one of those weird people that listens to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. Well before Thanksgiving if we’re being honest. Yes, I watch the Hallmark channel and their million movies about Christmas. I love decorating. I love baking cookies and candy. I love being with family. I love honoring the birth of our Savior. And I absolutely adore books with a Christmas theme.
Today I’m happy to share the first line from Michelle Griep’s novel A Tale of Two Hearts. I literally am starting to read it today, so we’re reading the first line together! I already know I am going to love it. Why? Three things.
1. Michelle Griep is a fantastic writer.
2. It’s a Christmas story.
3. It’s historical.
Need I say more??
In the tiny back courtyard of the Golden Egg Inn, Mina Scott lowered her copy of David Copperfield to her lap and lifted her face to the October sun.
