First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 2/8/19

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

London, 29 March 1818

St. James Park Loomed in front of them, shrouded in a heavy mist that created difficulty for the horse and driver as the coach and four maneuvered its way into the park.


 Page 56

Rays of early morning sunshine slanted through the windows of Carlton House as Witt walked up the marble staircase to the second floor.

Also linking up to:


  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Falling for Grace" by Janet W. Ferguson:

    "It was finally over."

    Because I am reading it on my kindle, there are no page numbers on this one (sometimes there are). The closest to 56 I can get is Loc 56:

    "Brooklyn Barlow, the head of Roundtree Group and top lobbyist in Georgia, had lived through difficult times and had become a great support through Grace's personal disaster."

  2. The cover gives the impression this will be a witty book. I love that time period in London. I will have to check this one out. I hope you enjoy it! Have a great weekend.

  3. Great the first line! Happy reading Colletta!

  4. I hope you love this one! Pretty cover! Happy weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: "'I believe.' Dowland said with all the conviction and soul he could muster." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  6. How does this compare to Pride and Prejudice since it coeres the approximate time period>? My Friday quotes and review

  7. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first line from The Wood's Edge by Lori Benton: "A white flag flew over Fort WIlliam Henry."

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first line from Death in the Stocks by Georgette Heyer on my blog today. Here is the second line:

    “No lamp shone in the window but a full moon sailed in a sky the colour of sapphires, and lit the village with a pale light, as cold as the sheen on steel.”

  9. I'll have to check this one out!

    I'm featuring "The Seamstress" by Allison Pittman on my blog, but I've just started reading "Atoning for Ashes" by Kaitlin Covel, so I'll share that first line here:

    Josie had always detested black.

    Have a great weekend!
