First Line Friday

My first First Line Friday courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews, a blog I started to recently follow.  This week I picked a book from my Netgalley shelf that I just started reading.  Side note, props to me for actually picking a book from my post My Top 5 Kindle Books To Read In 2019!

First Line:


No regrets.  Stupid name for a signature cocktail.  Brears had found the recipe online, this tequila-Baileys thing.  Seven shots plus the deejay speeding everything up plus the pink wine Leanza had drink before the ceremony were killing her bladder.


Ok, maybe I went beyond just the first line, but, I’m new to this so forgive me.  Make sure you check out Hoarding Books Blog and drop me a line with what you are currently reading right now!  PS, do we think drinking is heavily involved in this read?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Liza’s Second Chance” by Molly Jebber:

    “Liza Schrock clenched her teeth and dug her fingers in the fresh dough in her Amish bakery.”

  2. Welcome to First Line Friday!

    Seven shots? That sounds to me like lots of regrets.

    I’m sharing the first line from The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings on my blog today. I’m hearing great things about it, and am looking forward to reading it.

  3. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright but I’m currently reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (11) here: “A new chapter in a novel is something like a new scene in a play; and when I draw up the curtain this time reader–you must fancy you see a room in the George Inn at Millcote, with such a large-figured papering on the walls as in rooms have; such a carpet, such furniture, such ornaments on the mantlepiece, such prints–including a portrait of George the Third and another of the Prince of Wales, and a representation of the death of Wolfe.” I honestly don’t know how I made it this far into my life without reading it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green. It’s so amazing!!! I’m currently on chapter 22, so I’ll leave the first line from there.

    “The river had grown narrow and felt even smaller since Bright Star and Joseph had arrived with Gaspard Fontaine.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 😀❤📚

  5. I tend to go over as well, sometimes it just has to happen! I’m sharing from Excellent Women by Barbara Pym on my blog today, but I haven’t started reading it yet, so here is a not-so-randomly chosen line from the first page:

    “I suppose an unmarried woman just over thirty, who lives alone and has no apparent ties, must expect to find herself involved or interested in other people’s business, and if she is also a clergyman’s daughter then one might really say that there is no hope for her.”

    Have a great weekend!
