First Lines Friday ~ 6/15/18

https://hoardingbooksblog.wordpress.com/


Today's "First Lines" are from:


 
 
Not again.

Adam Stone slammed the door on his decrepit Kia, expelled a breath, and surveyed the damage.

The rustic, one-room cabin he called home appeared to be untouched this go-round.  But it would take some serious sanding to get the profanities spray-painted on the small outbuilding that housed his woodworking shop.

At least the vandals hadn't broken any windows this time.

But where was Clyde?

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck:

    "He must finish. He must."

  2. My first line this week is from Tricia Goyer's A Daring Escape. I don't have a bonus line to share, this week because I borrowed it from my local library and had to take it back yesterday. So, you'll just have to stop by my blog to see the first line! <3

  3. Oh, vandalism is the worst! Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend. Here's mine: “BEST BEACH EVER”

  4. I like the cover. Looks like a great summer beach read. :D

    My first line is from Laura Ingall Wilder’s, “Little House on the Prairie” which I am sharing on the blog today. I’m still currently reading “Just Let Go” so I don’t have an actual first line to share today that isn’t from the blog. πŸ˜€

    Happy reading!

  5. I love Irene Hannon's books!

    February 1909

    Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky

    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. The book I'm sharing this week on my blog is "Before the Apocalypse" by Taylor Jaxon. This is a Young Adult Christian Suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter Fourteen of that same book: "Sam extended his hand through the doorway of the ivy-covered mansion. An appendage the size of a catcher’s mitt engulfed his palm." Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  7. It is definitely time for beach books, so I love the cover. Doesn't sound like this one is all sunshine and light, though.

  8. The book I'm sharing on my blog today is Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey but it's also the book I'm currently reading so I'll share the first line of my current chapter (12): "'Do you think he followed you there?' Parker asked, taking a bit of kung pao chicken." Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading! :)

  9. That's sad and bad. Someone has written profanities all over his building. Irene Hannon is a wonderful author of suspense. I like her.

  11. Happy Friday!

    Today’s first lines come from Finding Wicked by Kathryn L. James

    “The day started out like any other, but then I received an email from Cordelia Irwin, the human resources director, and it was tagged urgent.”

    Sounds ominous, doesn’t it!

    I’m featuring lines from Nina Lane’s The Secret Thief on my blog today. I hope you can stop by!

  12. Happy Friday!😎

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading soon, The Life Lucy Knew by Karma Brown.

    I have a complicated relationship with my memory. Most of us, me included, believe our memories are fairly accurate.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!πŸ˜ŠπŸ“šπŸŒΌ

  13. I'm reading a novella today, The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller. Here are the first lines:

    "Lucy Fisher had never been so drenched in her entire life. Still, she managed a smile as her bus drove away."

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Hmmm.... Why is she drenched if she was on the bus??? Great first lines :)

  14. That's definitely an opening that would make me want to keep reading!



    Today on my blog I'm sharing from Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall, part of the Timeless Love collection. I'll share the first line from another story in the collection here, Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo:

    "It wasn't right to pray he would just die."

  15. Loved that book and the whole series.

  16. This week, I'm showcasing the first line from The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Here, I will share the first line from the book I just started reading, More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer.

    July 1894 -- Pecan Gap, TX
    Logan Fowler dismounted outside the Lucky Lady Saloon, anticipation thrumming in his veins.

    I hope you have a great weekend filled with lots of reading time!

  18. It sounds like it could be good, but I think I would need to know a bit more about the book before I kept reading.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'd like to also know a little bit more before I'd continue.

  20. Now I want to know why someone is spray painting his cabin, and who Clyde is and if he's safe. I'd keep reading.
