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

First Lines

London 1816

Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brooke's and Whites, was bored.

Thinking of eggs made her smile.

 Q.  How do you keep track of books you will be reviewing or reading? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

 A.  A long time ago, I used to receive books from various places in exchange for an honest review.  After a while it seemed like a chore so I stopped.  Now I only read for pleasure.  I write reviews of the books I read usually the same day I finish the book.  I like to put my thoughts down before they escape me!


Also linking up to:


  1. I like the quotes for this one. It looks like an interesting story. Enjoy your current read! :-)

  2. I suspect Graham is about to get himself into trouble!

  3. Great excerpts, and I love the book cover. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “YOU CAN’T CATCH ME”

  4. My first line is from IF I WERE YOU. By Lynn Austin:
    Prologue. London, November, 1945
    Eve Dawson bolted upright in bed.

    I review a lot of books and keep track on goodreads. I write reviews as soon as I can, because I read quite a few books and tend to forget, if I don’t do it right away.

  5. Ok, page 56 is hilarious today! Have a good weekend!!

  6. These are both great lines! This story definitely sounds like a good one!

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the first line from What Momma Left Behind by Cindy K. Sproles:

    1877--Sourwood Mountain, Tennessee

    "They was nothing I could do for her."

    Hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  7. I wonder why eggs made them smile?! Sounds like a good read! Happy weekend, stay safe!

  8. Happy Friday!!
    Over on my blog I shared the first line from the Mayflower Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse
    "A splinter of wood pierced Mary Elizabeth Chapman's thumb as she crept behind her lifelong friend Dorothy Raynsford."

    This book sounds so good!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  9. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Murder in the Family” by Ramona Richards:

    ” ‘Aunt Liz, you can’t keep doing this. It’s going to get you killed.’ And it had.”

  10. I use Goodreads to keep track on my TBR books, to note which books I review, and what page I'm on my current read. My Friday Quotes

  11. Happy Friday! My first line is from At Love's Command by Karen Witemeyer:
    "According to the Good Book, there was a time for war and a time for peace."
    Have a great weekend! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ❤๐Ÿ“š

  12. I write reviews as soon as I finish reading too, Colletta. Although I don't always publish them straight away.
    Hope you have a good weekend. x

  13. I like the opening line. The page 56 teaser leaves me baffled. :)

  14. Fencing team? That sounds intriguing. :)

  15. I haven't read any of Kristi Ann Hunter's books, but they sound good! Today, I'm sharing the first line from Coming Home to Maverick by Sophia Summers: "Maverick dipped his hat lower against the hot Texas sun. A man's hat could hide a lot of things, unfortunately, not everything."

  16. Hallo Colletta! I love that cover. It creates a sense of sereneness. Hope you will have a lovely, relaxed weekend.
