First Line Friday – School has begun!

Hello everyone! Happy First Week of School (at least in central NY). My daughter started 10th grade this year. 10th Grade!!! This mama is a little sad about that. Every year I struggle with the first day of school because I realize she is getting older and time is slipping by faster then I want it to! She turns 15 next month, which means in a year she’ll be driving. And in three years graduating high school.

Okay, I can’t talk about that anymore……

How was your week? I’ve been trying to catch up on typing my reviews, but it’s been slow going. Between work and going to the gym, I’ve been wiped out at night. But, this too shall pass. I will get there just take it easy on me! Okay so I am excited to be bringing today’s FLF book. I’ve seen it everywhere since it’s release date and have been dying to read it. I hear it’s a good one 🙂

Today’s first line is…..

Alexandra Jamison had always wanted a sister.

Short and sweet. Although I could probably substitute my daughter’s name in there. She’s always wanted a sibling claiming that being an only child is rough. I get it. For most of my youth I was an only child. But there are perks too!

And now it’s your turn to share what you are reading! 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!!!

  1. When my daughter (now 17) was a baby, she said she wanted a brother and a sister, in that order. But she changed her mind after her brother arrived and decided one sibling was quite enough!

    I love the cover of this book, and it’s certainly an intriguing first line. Mine is equally intriguing. It’s from Unblemished by Sara Ella, which is a bit different to what I usually read.

    This is all my fault.
    She’ll lose her soul because of me.

    Okay, so that’s two lines, and now I want to keep reading.

  2. Time does go by more quickly that we would like. I’ve never read anything by Tamera Alexander but I’ve heard good things about her writing. My first line is “No way. Not now. Not ever.” from Blown Together by Janet W. Ferguson.

  3. You’re definitely in for a good read!

    I’m featuring Nicole Deese’s new book, “A New Shade of Summer” on my blog this week, but I’ve FINALLY managed to get around to reading Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”, and I almost didn’t even want to put it down to do the First Line Friday rounds! But I’ve forced myself to share the first line:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

  4. My first line is going to be the first paragraph because It is short! It’s from These Healing Hills by Ann Gabhart. And her writing has captured me again!
    Francine Howard stepped off the bus into another world. She should have been prepared. She’d studied the Frontier Nursing information until she almost knew it by heart. That should have given her a glimpse into this place.

    There are sooo many good quotes to glean from this book and I’m only on page 53!

    Tammy Alexander is hands down in my top 15 favorite authors. She does such wonderful research! Great books!

  5. Come to a turable mountain that tried us almost to death to git over it.

    APRIL 1777

    What cannot be cured must be endured. A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

  6. That is such a great story!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from a book I just finished. The Case of the Clobbered Cad. It was a fun story to read.
    I’ll share here the first line from a book my son is currently reading.
    Tree Tall and the Whiteskins by Shirlee Evans
    “Tree Tall crept through the high dew-damp grass along the creek bank. It was early. The sun was not yet over the hill.”

  7. I loved this book. My first line on my blog is from Colleen Coble. But I grabbed a book beside me for here.
    “He’d found her.” by The Texan’s Courtship Lessons by Noelle Marchand. My mom gave this book to me and I haven’t read it yet.

  8. As if a rogue summer wind had suddenly swept over the cobblestone plaza, the door to Fry Me a Sliver flew open with a bang.
    A Frying Shame
    By Linda Reilly

  9. I’m listening to To Wager Her Heart on Audio! Happy Friday!!

    My first line is from For Such a Moment by Marie Wells Coutu:

    “Ellen Nielson scanned the large office, seeking a secret corner where she could escape.”

  10. My daughter started kindergarten this year. I cried after I dropped her off! I feel your pain. I don’t get how time operates…it’s crazy!

    My quote comes from The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachel Anderson. This is book #3 in series. I highly recommend all three novels!

    “‘How dreadful it would be to live on one’s own permanently,’ Lady Harriet Cavendish said to no one in particular as she walked through a thick grove of pines in Askern, Yorkshire.”
