First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 2/15/19

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

"Wait right here, Cissy,"  Mama said.  "I need to step into the powder room for a sec."


 Page 56

His comments rendered Cissy totally speechless.  She hadn't seen that one coming.
Also linking up to:


  1. Looks like an interesting book. I hope you are enjoying it. I am spotlighting Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch this week. Happy reading!

  2. I love that she's holding coffee :) At least I imagine it's coffee, maybe hot chocolate.

    I'll share the first line from a book I'm starting this weekend, Courting Mr. Emerson by Melody Carlson.

    "George Emerson didn't need anybody."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. I'm curious for more. Sounds like it might be a good one! Happy weekend!

  4. Super cute cover! I’m sharing a new release on Faithfully Bookish but here’s the first line from chapter 2 of my current read, Once Bitten by Betsy St. Amant of the Finding Ever After novella collection: “He was going to stand her up.”

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano. I am loving this book so much. I’m currently just starting chapter 19, so I will share the first line from that chapter here.

    “‘A bookstore?’ Justin didn’t mean for his dismay to show in his voice when he pulled up in front of the address Melody had given him, but it escaped all the same.”

    Hope you have a really excellent weekend filled with relaxing reading time. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ“š

  6. I'm wondering what she hadn't seen coming.
    But now I'm going to go get a cup of tea because the cup she's holding looks so good.

  7. I like the quotes, and the 56 makes me wonder what's going on.

  8. What intriguing snippets. I'd need to read more to know if i'd want to read on. My Friday quotes come from Life on Mars

  9. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read today, American Omens by Travis Thrasher (Uncorrected Proof). Her is the first line from Chapter 17 “The Same Page”:

    “The moment her father stepped foot in the barn that morning, Cheyenne couldn’t help but let loose with an uproarious laugh.”

  10. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "If Only It Were Yesterday" by A. M. Heath:

    "Oomph. Something solid bashed into my shoulder, knocking me off balance."

  11. I haven't heard of that one. Happy Reading!!!

    Today I'm sharing the first lines from A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton:

    "Satahuhsiyost -- Listen! Open your ears to a story I will tell you."

  12. I like the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “DON’T WAKE UP”

  13. I'd read a bit more and then make a decision on whether to continue or not.

  14. I'd have to read on a little more, but it is interesting. Hope you're enjoying it! My Teaser

  15. Looks like a cute read. See what Susan featured at Girl Who Reads
