First Line Friday: January 25th

My first First Line Friday courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews.

This week my friend and I decided to do a buddy read where we would read the same book at the same time.  She walks around and listens to book on audible (and is trying hard to convert me over, haha) and I read them (either physical or ebook form), but, we always enjoy discussing them the same!  This week she happened to pick out this one, which we both happened to have in our libraries…

Here’s that opening line that hooked me in…

“I made a mistake.  I know that now.”

All I will say is my poor children.  After reading this book I do not think I will let them go anywhere, at any age, without me present.  Look for my review coming soon!  Until then, what is the first line of what you’re currently reading right now?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Yesterday’s Promises” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Danica Callaghan sank down on the lowest of the wide, built-in, carpeted risers and surveyed her handiwork.”

    I shared the first couple of lines from Melanie Dickerson’s 9th book for her Hagenheim series “The Warrior Maiden” on my blog. I enjoyed reading that book and will be reviewing it soon.

    Here, though, I will be sharing the first few lines from my current read “Carve the Mark” by Veronica Roth.

    “Hushflowers always bloomed when the night was longest. The whole city celebrated the day the bundle of petals peeled apart into rich red – partly because hushflowers were their nation’s lifeblood, and partly, Akos thought, to keep them all from going crazy in the cold.”

    Carve the Mark has long been on my TBR and I’m happy that I finally get to read it. I’m enjoying it so far, and I hope you enjoyed those lines as well.

    May your weekend be filled with great books! 😀

  3. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first lines from One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers today, here are the lines that follow:

    “Llyn Torfinn stood at an i-net station, listening nervously, clasping her thin left arm with her right hand. Not much muscle padded the bones.”

    Hope you have a good weekend.

    On my blog today I shared the first line from The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E Brunstetter but I’m currently about to start Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan so I’ll share the first line from that book here: “Mia Shaw gripped a bundle of brightly colored helium balloons with the word congratulations splashed all over them.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
