First Line Fridays – The Memory House

Happy Friday friends! Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books!

Today I’m sharing the first line of my current read, The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. She just happened to be at CFRR last week as one of the main speakers, and let me just say her talk was amazing and inspiring. All of them were if I’m being totally honest. It’s just such a neat thing to get to know your favorite authors better. In case you’re wondering – they are people just like us. They talk to us like we’re friends, they laugh, they snort, they act goofy, and they keep it real.

But back to the book…..I’ve been waiting to get back to dive into this book, but work has kind of put a damper on my start time. Don’t you just hate it when work gets in the way of reading!? But I’ve finally started, and so far I am loving it. (I mean it is written by the wonderfully talented Rachel Hauck, so I pretty much knew that going in) If you don’t have a copy to read, I encourage you to get one soon. As in right now. Seriously – if you’re still reading this post then you need to read at least until the photo below, so you can click on the link and order it 😉

Here’s the first line from The Memory House……

She was never afraid of the dark.

For the record, I am totally afraid of the dark, so that fact alone made me want to keep reading! Stay tuned for my review coming next week!

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!

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. It is SO awesome. You can see my post by going to: Currently, I am on chapter 22, so I will share a line from there.

    “The knock came late as the house rattled with the crashes and flashes of a spring thunderstorm.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! ?❤️?

  4. Happy Friday!

    Love the cover art. I’ve never read any of Rachel’s books, but this one looks promising. 🙂

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the opening line from Susan Anne Mason’s A Worthy Heart. I’m also reading The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky. The first line is:

    “If she lived to be one hundred and five, Katherine Evangeline Ramsey would never understand why every debutante must begin the London social season by curtsying to the king and queen.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. ?

  5. That first line pulled me in already!
    The first line of my CR is “Abra could almost feel the rain, even though it was only a dream.” It is from The Edge of Over There by Shawn Smucker.

  6. Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer is on top of my “read this next” stack. I’m sharing from Chapter 1 on my blog, so here is the first line from the prologue:

    “A great philosopher looks at his various struggles as fodder for his innovative thinking, but, since I am not a great philosopher, I look at my struggles as something akin to stepping on a bee the size of a Komodo dragon.”

    Happy Friday and have a good weekend!

  7. I’d love to go to CFFR one day 🙂

    I’m sharing the first line from Beyond the Stars, Past the Moons by Jebraun Clifford on my blog today. It’s from the Encircled anthology, which I’m looking forward to reading.

    Here’s another first line from the anthology. This one is from Edged in Silver by Laurie Lucking:

    “If only I didn’t have to go home.”

    Happy reading. Have a great weekend 🙂
