First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 2/22/19

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

Rosalyn crouched as low as her sturdy walking gown would allow, hiding behind the hedgerow.


 Page 56

At the moment, Bristol felt as distant as a far country.   But somehow she would find a way to get there.

  1. hilarious first sentence, I can imagine the scene! My post is here:

  2. Hmmm....I can see her crouched down...hiding. I wonder why.

  3. Why was she hiding, I wonder?! Good snippets! Happy weekend!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano:

    “Once upon a time, Melody Johansson had believed in happily ever afters.”

  5. I wonder why she is hiding. This week I am spotlighting Connections in Death by J. D. Robb. Happy reading!

  6. Happy Friday!

    MY first lines come from Criminally Cocoa by Amanda Flower.

    “Cut! Cut!” the director Raymond Reynolds yelled. He was a tall, loose-jointed man, who braided his hair into a ponytail at the back of his head. Before meeting him, I didn’t think I had ever seen a man with a braid before, and I couldn’t stop staring at it. In my community only little girls braided their hair, never grown women and certainly never menfolk.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!πŸ’œ

  7. Why is she hiding and won't that big stiff gown give her away? My quotes

  8. Happy Friday!

    I'm currently reading Castle on the Rise by Kristy Cambron. It is such a great story. I highly recommend it. Right now I am in the middle of chapter 23, so I will share a line from there.

    "Most of the south side was still cloaked in darkness from the gasworks disaster."

    Hope you have a relaxing weekend. Happy reading! πŸ™‚πŸ’šπŸ“š

  9. I just went and read the book blurb. Sounds like she's about to have an adventure.

  10. I'm sharing from the latest Elizabeth Camden novel on my blog, but I've just picked up After the Rain by Brandy Bruce. Here's the first line:

    "Deb, I miss you. I think about you. Just wanted to say it again."

  11. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall on my blog today. Here is the first line from Chapter 7:

    "The minute Lieutenant Dimsmore offered Emeline his arm as they emerged from the companionway after dinner, she regretted accepting his invitation."

  12. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews (releases 3/5). I'm currently reading it so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: "I had experienced the atrocities of war but never witnessed a battle like the one my son fought for his life during the week of his illness." This book is soooo good I highly recommend it! Hope you have a great weekend with quality reading time! :)

  13. I've read great reviews for that series but haven't had a chance to read it yet!
