First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 1/11/19

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


The pathetic state of Allison Shire's existence was perfectly summed up by the size-twelve prosthetic feet mocking her from the floor of the Mercedes minibus.

 Page 56

"That girl is going to send me to an early grave."  Beth's consternation showed in her face.

Also linking up to:


  1. I have no idea what's going on in that opening but I love it! That's a really great image to start with. XD

    My Book Beginnings

  2. That first line really makes me want to know more. Thanks, and have a great weekend!

  3. That opening is grand. It’s definitely a hook!

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first few lines of Who I Am with You by Robin Lee Hatcher. It's such a good book. I'm just beginning chapter 25, so I will share the first line from there.

    "Feeling elated by his day down in the valley, meeting with a financial advisor and a Realtor, Ridley rapped on Jessica's back door."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

  5. Great snippets and cute cover! Happy weekend!

  6. Oh goodness...what a first line...I hope everything turns out well for her. Happy reading!

  7. Hi! Happy Friday.

    I shared the first couple of lines from one of my recent reads, The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi, on my blog. I loved this book so much and to celebrate its coming release (January 15) I will be sharing the first couple of lines from its prologue chapter here.

    The matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner. In the normal course of things, she did not care for punctuality. Punctuality, with its unseemly whiff of eagerness was for peasants. And she was neither a peasant nor eager to endure a meal with the mongrel heir of House Nyx.

    Hope you enjoy that. Happy weekend!

  8. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm featuring Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears but I'm currently reading The Watch on the Fencepost by Kay DiBianca so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (38) here: "Kate parked her car in the corner lot and strolled down the sidewalk toward Café Rouge." Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend with plenty of reading time!

  9. Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! My first line is from "Marry Me Katie (Whispers in Wyoming Book 7)" by Lisa Prysock:

    "Flight #753 to Rockport Regional, come in Rockport Regional Airport... repeat... requesting permission to make an emergency landing... repeat... Flight #753 requesting permission to make an emergency landing. Low on fuel."

  10. I so need to start reading Kara Isaac's books! I'm sharing the first paragraph from a non-fiction book today, Code Name: Lise by Larry Loftis. Here is the line that follows:

    "If his instincts were right, this was a girl who would throw herself headlong into danger."

    Happy Friday!

  11. I like that color palette on the cover.

    Thanks for sharing! :)
