First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 12/28/18

(I'm still reading the book below but these are new lines)

Today's "First Lines" and "56" are from:



He'd been explaining away the chemistry between them.  He's been telling himself he could manage it.
 Page 56

Nora flipped to the next page, an information sheet that the adoption agency had no doubt given to John's parents.

Also linking up to:


  1. My first line is from Chapter 16 of Flights of Fancy by Jen Turano:

    Catching the biscuits on fire was most assuredly not the best way of honoring her promise to keep the house from burning to the ground.

  2. I really like the cover of this book. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on it when you've finished reading!

  3. Sounds good. I hope you are enjoying it. This week I am spotlighting The Wild Dead by Carrie Vaughn - a dystopian mystery. Happy reading!

  4. Love Becky Wade books! Happy Friday! My first line is from "Through the Shadows" by Karen Barnett:

    "Elizabeth King held her fingers against the ivory keys, refusing to stir as the final chord faded and silence descended on the parlor."

  5. I loved this book. Becky Wade is awesome. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first paragraph from A Bound Heart by Laura Frantz. I'm currently on chapter 12, so I'll leave the first line from there.

    "Lark smiled as the long-awaited bairn made his entry into the rain-washed July day."

    It's such a good book!

    Hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend full of rest and good reading time! ๐Ÿ˜€❤๐Ÿ“š

  6. I'm intrigued for more! Wishing you the best for 2019!

  7. The cover is lovely and it does sound like a sweet read. I need those now and then:)

    My Friday 56 from That Which Grows Wild

  8. Such a pretty cover. I'll keep this one in mind when I'm in the mood for a romance.

  9. I just saw a book by Becky Wade on top of my pile of books that I still need to read. :) Happy New Year Colletta!

  10. Sorry I'm a bit late coming around this week again! On my blog I featured With This Pledge by Tamera Alexander but I'm currently reading The Teacher's Bride by Kathleen Fuller so I'll share that first line here: "I can't believe she came here without letting us know ahead of time." Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
