First Line Fridays: May 24th

As always First Line Friday comes courtesy of Hoarding Books Blog.  I discovered this magic thanks to Crystal at Must Love Reviews.  Let’s get right into the beginning of this one shall we?

I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it.

To say this is a dark read would be an understatement…any guesses as to what book I’m reading???  This is a book lent to me by one of my co-workers…and it is quite the gripping read!



Dark Places by Gillian Flynn!

  1. Over on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund. Here I’ll share with you the first line from chapter 4 of the same book.
    “Mercy stood in the long line of tenants waiting for a turn at the water spigot at the back of the building.”

  2. I think this book would give me nightmares, lol! The cover is beautiful but slightly terrifying. I’m currently reading The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze… “With a furtive pat, Gemma Lyfeld blotted her nerve-damp palms on her white muslin gown.”

    1. This book was surprisingly not scary…it’s weird. It’s twisted, but how everything plays out it’s just more of a suspenseful mystery, haha. Oooo, that line is an attention grabber! Thank you for stopping by!


  3. Today on my blog I featured A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund which I just finished last night. My next read is going to be Where Hope Begins by Catherine West so I’ll share that first line here: “My husband is leaving me.” I think I’m in for an intense read! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with some quality reading time 🙂

  4. That hints at a strong narrative voice, but not a pleasant story… I’m sharing from Kelly Irvin’s Through the Autumn Air on my blog today. Here is the second sentence:

    “Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.”

    Happy Friday!
