First Line Friday – The Socialite

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books!

Today I am sharing the first line of my current read, The Socialite by J’nell Ciesielski! I am just about to start the last third of the book, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I am enjoying it. It amazes me how well J’nell has been able to get into the minds of each character, and represent them so well to me as a reader. I can feel the ice in the room when a bad guy enters the scene. And there’s a part where they actually go to Hitler’s house. UM……wow I couldn’t tear myself away. But okay, enough gushing. I’ll save that for review time 😉

  1. My first line is from chapter 6 of One Hundred Valleys by Bonnie Leon:
    The Indians had kept moving, but Emmalin held on to the rifle.

  2. August 1952
    He had parked his cruiser in the muddy verge of the county highway, a little way from the circus that was going on up the road.

  3. Happy Friday!
    On my blog I’m sharing from Being Known by Robin Jones Gunn. It’s such an EXCELLENT story. Currently, I’m reading Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish by Bethany Turner. I’m just getting into chapter 2 so I’ll share a line from there.

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂
