First Line Fridays

Happy Friday Everyone! Welcome to my first, First Line Fridays post 🙂

This link up is hosted by Hoarding Books. The idea is simple, share the first line of your nearest book!

This week I am sharing the first sentence of my current read. I’m only a chapter in at time of writing and I am loving it so far!

3 (2)_LI

Ok so you are getting way more than just a line here! The first sentence (which I am using in the same way as first line in this case) seems to go on and on and on! It probably doesn’t help things that I have my kindle font size set to 5, but it does make things nice and comfortable on my eyes.

Do you recognise the book from the first sentence?

How about after seeing this image?

Yep that’s right, ‘Five Children and It‘ by E. Nesbit, which apparently I have never read before! I loved the show as a child though so I think my brain things I have read it.

Let me know the first line of the book closest to you and then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. Happy Friday! The book I’m sharing on my blog is an old one: The Knight and the Dove by Lori Wick. Here, I will share Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer, “Peace and quiet. That’s all he sought.” Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Welcome to this event! Kids can be so impatient LOL My lines for today: “Louisville, Kentucky, 2015

    All Allison wanted was for this conversation to be over. That and she hoped the ehavy gray clouds would part and the sun would appear. It could go either way today – sun or rain. She stood at the kitchen window, peeling old white paint off the sill as she waited for the Kentucky sky to make up its mind.

    Meanwhile, sitting behind her at the table, her lover, Cooper Mc Queen, gently ruined her life.” Happy Friday!

  3. The picture didn’t help me at all – I think I need to start a list of children’s authors I missed out on. I’m sharing from Karen Barnett’s The Road to Paradise on my blog today, so here I’ll share the first line from another book I hope to read soon, The Alliance by Jolina Petersheim:

    “Buffered by grassland, the collision is strangely quiet.”

    Have a great weekend!
