First Line Fridays - 5/5/17 - You're the Cream in My Coffee


Happy Friday!!!

I realised I forgot to share out painting pictures last week! Here are a few before and after. We are antiquing the cabinets and I LOVE them! SO MUCH!!!  




The wall behind the sink we did paint a tan color. But you can't see it very well in the pictures. I adore the FEEL of the kitchen. Country, OLD, and cozy! We still have several cupboards to do...But it isn't AS hard as we thought it would be initially. 

Here is another book that has long been on my TBR. Carrie from Reading is my SuperPower recommended it to me last fall. When Carrie recommends a book...I add it to my list...No questions asked! What are you reading this weekend?


First off, I need to set the record straight. In a town the size of Kerryville, Illinois, rumours have a way of catching fire and burning a hole straight through the truth.


If you would like to host First Line Fridays on your blog, contact Carrie on Reading is my SuperPower.

  1. I definitely need to read this one! I have the first line of Tosca Lee's 'Firstborn' on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line of "Wings of the Wind" by Connilyn Cossette:

    "Forging through the teeming mass of Canaanite soldiers in this vast army camp, I'd never felt more alone."

  2. On my page I'm sharing the first line from Such a Hope by Sondra Kraak. However, here I'm going to share the first line of book on my TBR stack; "The Miracle of the Seventh-day Ox" by Bradley Booth: "Nickolia Panchuk stared at the four walls of the jail cell around him. The cold gray concrete made him feel as if he were in a tomb--cold and frightened and alone."

    If I'd known I was about to meet the man who'd shatter me like bone china on terra-cotta, I would have slept in.

  5. My first line comes from an advance read of a book that will have a permanent home on my "favorite books" shelf. THE ASTONISHING THING by Sandi Ward releases in November. It's so clever and touching...told from the point of view of a cat, Boo, who is trying to solve the disappearance of her human mom and help her family heal. So, so sweet! "Let me tell you about my mother." (Mainstream with references to faith, 99% clean)

    "Finding oneself at the mercy of a crazed gunman isn't all fun and games."

  10. Glad you shared the cabinet pics, I'm going to be painting mine...eventually.

    Kathleen Fullers’ Written in Love begins as an epistolary. Here is the first line from the first letter:

    “November 2

    Dear Mr. Chupp,
    Your letter was accidentally sent to my house.”

    Carrie is the reason You're the Cream in my Coffee (and many others) is on my TBR list as well :D

  18. I have this one on my Kindle! Haven't gotten around to it yet...

    Last night was my brother's college graduation, so while I was waiting for the 200+ students before him to get their diplomas, I read "Love at First Bark" (Dana Mentink). It was short and amusing. :) The first line...er...paragraph... was great...

    "Marcy Deveraux was surprised to discover she didn't actually miss the prince very much. The naked truth was, he'd been high maintenance with all that dark broodiness and not much of a sense of humor to speak of. By the end of their time together, he'd even gotten on her nerves just the tiniest bit. Still, Prince Rafe's departure left her at a loss. It was not as though His Royal Highness was required to save anyone else from assassination, and it had been twelves months since that perilous jungle crossing, complete with poisonous spiders and the one-eyed bandit. The prince had survive more adventures than could be expected of anyone, fictional or not, and he deserved his happy ending.
    So now what?
    Marcy chewed her pencil eraser, staring at the blank pages of her notebook as the summer wind rattled the cabin windows."
