First Lines Friday ~ 8/3/18

Today's "First Lines" are from:

 1868 ~ Kansas
"Don't you just love springtime?" Della asked as her horse approached a shallow brook.  Rather than ride through it, she tapped her mare with her quirt and leaned forward.  "C'mon, Jezabel.  Let's go."

Also linking up to:


  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, Oh My Stars by Sally Kilpatrick.

    And it came to pass in those days, that a decree went out from my mother that I would be playing the Virgin Mary in the Dollar General drive-through Nativity whether I liked it or not.

    Haha! I love those first lines and can't wait to read this book!

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!πŸ˜ŠπŸ“š

  2. Happy Friday!

    I'm sharing Thirst of Steel on my blog, but I just started "Nice to Come Home To" by Liz Flaherty. The first line is: Why didn't you ever come back here?

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Happy Friday!


    I’m reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller right now, so here’s the first line: “It was love at first sight.”

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:

    “I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring.”

  5. On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

  6. Happy Friday!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Auschwitz Lullaby but it's also what I just finished reading so I'll share my favorite quote from the book here: “Sometimes we have to lose everything to find what is most important. When life robs us of what we thought we could not live without and leaves us standing naked before reality, the essential things that had always been invisible take on their true value.” Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Over on my blog, I'm showcasing the first line from Carolyn Miller's new novel, Miss Serena's Secret. It's SO good. I'm almost finished with the book, so here I will share the first line of chapter 26.

    "I cannot help you."

    A bit blunt and harsh! Lol.
    I hope you're having an awesome weekend filled with great reading time. πŸ˜€❤πŸ“š

  8. This sounds like a great story!! Thank you for sharing it!

  9. I like the sound of this one, primarily because I lived in Kansas for a while and then I also love this time period. I'm off to see if I can find this one. Thanks.

  10. I rarely read books like this but I do like the intro so I'd keep reading.
