First Lines & Book Beginnings

Happy Friday Everyone!

I’m linking up with First Line Fridays which hosted by Hoarding Books. The idea is simple, share the first line of your nearest book!

Rose City Reader hosts a similar link up on that asks for the first line or two of your current read.

Whichever link up lead you to my blog today, welcome!

This week I am sharing the first sentence of a book that is edging it’s way up my TBR list:

It is a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed.

This is taken from a book I recently featured on a Goodreads Monday post:

Fahrenheit 451

  1. Opening the door was the hardest part. Not that she expected to find it locked, because no one out here in this part of Texas ever locked anything. The Countess and the Cowboy by Kathleen Y’Barbo from the Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers Romance Collection

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading!


  2. What an intriguing beginning! While I’ve seen this book around, somehow I’ve never read it though I’ve read many others by this author. I’m featuring Falling Star by Terri Osburn – a romance from my review stack – this week. Happy reading!


  3. The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is Love on the Mend by Karen Witemeyer. I love all the books I’ve read of hers. Here, I will share the first line of chapter 17 from the book I’m currently reading, The Social Tutor by Sally Britton. “Thomas waited for her arrival, this time on Christine’s side of the brook, his breath turning to fog in the cold air.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.


  4. I’m sharing the first two lines from A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason on my blog today. Here, I will post the first line from the novel I’m currently reading, Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn.

    “Homicide investigator Ryan Parker flashed a thumbs-up to his dive buddy and fellow homicide investigator, Gabe Chavez.”

    Let me tell you, that thumbs-up quickly becomes a thumbs-down!!! This book is really gripping. I can’t figure it out!!! 😄 Happy Friday.


  5. I need to reread Fahrenheit 451 soon! I’m sharing from Mary Connealy’s Now and Forever on my blog today, but here are the first lines of another second in series book with a heroine that loves tending her sheep, Beloved Hope by Tracie Peterson:

    Oregon City, Oregon
    May 1850

    “You can’t be serious.” Hope Flanagan looked at the man who sat opposite her at her sister and brother-in-law’s kitchen table. “You expect me to testify at the Cayuse trial.”

    Happy Friday!
