First Line Fridays - Week Five

Friday, May 27, 2016

How is it already Friday again? I just love teaming up with Carrie over on Reading is my SuperPower for our Friday fun! I find it is a great way to end the week, kickstart the weekend and LOVE hearing the gripping first lines of all these fabulous books! Last week I mentioned my reading nook that my hubby is building for me! We got the first coat of paint on...and as are some pictures! 

In case you are not familiar...
We are doing a Doctor Who theme.
The lamp you see in the foreground...My son broke earlier that day,
so we had limited lighting lol!

The ceiling in the nook will be painted with
"Starry Night". 
The door into the family room...
T.A.R.D.I.S. door eventually,
 Silly us, we should have actually done primer for the first coat, but oh well. It looks fantabulous! 

Now...For my first line...This week my first line comes from one of my all time FAVORITE books...

Chetfield House, Mayfair
London - April 1917
Her Father would never forgive her.

Read my review HERE (purchase options included)

For what he won't forgive her...Well I guess you will just have to find out for yourself hehe!

What is your first line? Comment below and then head over to Carrie's HERE to post your first line on Reading is my SuperPower. 

Thank you for joining us! And if you would like to join in the fun on your blog, send Carrie an email!


  1. "With each passing day, she remembered she had a secret."

    How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck

    1. Ahhh...secrets! Nothing good comes of having them!

  2. yay!! Love that book too!! And your reading nook IS looking fantabulous! :) Now the book closest to me is Suzanne Woods Fisher's The Quieting - this first line is "Men, I believe I have just met my future bride!"

  3. Aww, thank you, Rachel. :) God bless!

  4. Here is my first line for today: “My cousin didn’t try to catch the bride’s bouquet. She knew me well enough to know I wouldn’t try to catch it, either.” – Susanna Kearsley – A Desperate Fortune

  5. “Fourteen circles for fourteen owners.” ~~ Storm Siren by Mary Weber. I haven’t gotten to start it yet, but this was the closest to me.

  6. My first line comes from Sarah Sundin’s IN PERFECT TIME For Lt. Kay Jobson, flight nursing meant more than physical care.

    Have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend! Blessings :)

    1. Thank you Caryl! Blessings to you as well! I love Sarah Sundin....I need to read this one.

  7. "Zeke Monroe appreciated a good joke, and this one was on him."
    ~Someone Like You by Victoria Bylin

    1. Haha...this made me laugh out loud! Thanks Sydney!

  8. Oh Rachel that book is on my very long want-to-read list!! Please tell me it's as good as all the great things I've heard about it!
    I've never watched Dr. Who, but I have a gal that goes to our church who is! So I bet she'd LOVE your book nook and probably want to join you in it :-)
    Okay, back to first lines, I'm just starting this one's from Varina Denman's newest book "Jilted", the third and final of the Mended Hearts series. Like I told Carrie, you guys must be extra special because this is the first time I've even cracked open the page..haha!

    I’m starting this book tonight. It’s Varina Denman’s newest one “Jilted” her third & last in the Mended Hearts series. You must be special Carrie because I haven’t even cracked the book open until now…haha!

    “My daughter Ruthie has always called me a glass-is-half-empty kind of person, but she was wrong”

    There you have it, soon to find out where that first line leads! :-)

    1. Not by Sight is seriously one of my favorite books of all time! Kate Breslin is easily in my top 5 favorite authors! I really want to re-read it, but I just have no time right now lol! Hope you can get to it soon! And enjoy Jilted...Sounds like an interesting beginning!
