First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 9/21/18

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

I'm still reading The Butterfly and the Violin but the lines are new:


 December 3, 1942
Vienna, Austria
"She is in shock."
The doctor had poked his head out into the cold, looked up and down the deserted city street, then tugged her into the house.
Page 56

And there he was.  Vladimir.  Smiling.  Urging her on.

Also linking up to:


  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Rebecca's Legacy" by Betty Thomason Owens:

    "Are you crazy? My father's going to kill me."

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden.


    Baltimore, Maryland, 1867

    "Come on, boy. Your dad needs you."

  3. Sounds good and I do love the cover. This week I am featuring The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. Happy reading!

  4. Nice excerpts. I hope this is as good as it looks.

    I'm featuring Broken Ground this week.

  5. Still sounds good too! :-) Happy weekend!

  6. I’m featuring lines from A.K. MacBride’s upcoming release Shattered on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Rachael Brownell’s Chasing Fate. It’s my quirky blind date with a book this month.

    ”What do you mean, you quit your job?”

    Happy Reading!

  7. I’m sharing from a Christmas novella on my blog. Here I’ll share from Belle: An Amish Retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Sarah Price:

    “Sunflowers always made Belle happy. Very happy.”

    Happy Friday!

  8. LOVED that book!
    The book I shared this week is Freedom's Light by Colleen Coble but I'm currently reading an ARC of The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall so I'll share the first line here: "What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down… down… beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?" I can honestly say I don't want to find out! Hope you have a great weekend with lots of reading time! :)
