First Lines Friday and 56 ~ 9/13/19

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

First Lines

 Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory, October 1886
It was only wind.
Charlotte Harding wrapped her arms around her waist, trying to convince herself there was not reason to tremble like a cottonwood leaf in a storm.

 Page 56
As Miriam and Mr. Eberhardt made their way toward the door, Mr. Landry appeared unconcerned.  "Are you enjoying the concert?" he asked Charlotte.


P.S. I'd love for you to come join in the Fall Into Reading Challenge!

  1. Happy Friday!

    I'm sharing the first line from One Final Breath at my blog but right now I'm reading WayFarer by Janalyn Voigt, so I'll share that line first line with you. An indrawn breath alerted Kai.

  2. That line feels like it really sets the tone!!! Happy Friday!

  3. The Fall into REading event sound like it is just what I need but I am going on a long trip so won't be able to start until I return. My Friday Quotes

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon: It's such a good book. Currently, I am reading book 2 in the series, All of You, so I will share a line from there.

    "England, 1944
    The gangplank bounced under the weight of passengers disembarking the large transatlantic liner -- a veritable Goliath to the small David-like tugboats dotting the harbor."

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  5. Sounds like a delightful read! Happy Friday the 13th weekend!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Hold Me” by Alexa Verde:

    “Aileen McKenzie might not make it.”

  7. Happy Friday! Today on my blog I shared the first line from Shades of Light by Sharon Garlough Brown but I'm currently reading My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt so I'll share the first line from chapter 7 here: "Like a rent in fabric formerly whole, the wake of her vater's absence yawned wide and gaping." Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing the first line from The Enlightenment of Bees by Rachel Linden: "The day my world crumbles I am dreaming about pie crust."

  9. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from Belinda Blake and the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing by Heather Day Gilbert on my blog today, so here is another line from the first page:

    "I cozied up on my blue couch, setting my warm mug of Arabica coffee on the low table in front of me."

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. My first line is from The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

    May 1900 Washington D.C.
    Annabelle Larkin hadn’t meant to offend the world’s leading spice tycoon with her bold request, yet it seemed she had.
