First Lines Friday, 56 and BBH ~ 11/29/19

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

First Lines

We sat at her table, stabbing plastic forks into Chinese take-out.

You--my tired, beautiful friend--are you cranky?  Drained?  Stretched to the point of snapping and resentful of the people who demand you time, your attention, your blessings?

 Q.  Did you go shopping on Thanksgiving Night, Black Friday, or on Cyber Monday? If so, did you buy any books? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
 A.   I plan on shopping on all the above!  It will be an added bonus if I get to buy any books :)


P.S.  I'm hosting a sign up for Pen Pals for 2020.  Click HERE for more information!

  1. I will do a little shopping today on my Pink Zebra website as I need some new supplies and a few of the specials they are offering, but that is all. I like the page 56 quote on this as it exactly how I have been feeling lately.

  2. Sounds like an interesting read! Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

  3. This seems like an interesting book. Enjoy your current read!

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from On My Honour by Elizabeth Johns. I'm at the 72% mark in the book, so I'll share another line here.

    "Meg had to do something."

    Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚❤๐Ÿ“–

  5. My first line is from When I Close My Eyes by Elizabeth Musser :
    October, 2015 Friday
    The lady came out of the book store- it was all decorated for Halloween, all sizes and colors of pumpkins making faces at me from where .i watched across Haywood Street in downtown Asheville.

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Ruby Jane: The Montana Marshalls" by Susan May Warren:

    Prologue: "Aw, York just knew this would happen."

  7. I hope you got some great books on your shopping venture! Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from A Distance Too Grand by Regina Scott: "You can't be the photographer."

  9. This week on my blog I shared the first line from Wings Like a Dove by Camille Eide. It's what I'm reading right now so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (9) here: "Anna greeted her students Monday morning with a cheer she did not feel." Have a great weekend and happy reading!
