First Line Fridays - Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book



Happy Friday!!!

Today's book is one that I have been MAKING myself wait to read until after I finished reading the books I am judging for the INSPYs...And that day is SO close! I am hoping to read this one this coming week! I can't get over this cover! Seriously! *SWOON* Have you seen the NEW Beauty and the Beast? My new favorite Disney movie of ALL time!


Chapter One
Belle stood in front of the doors to the library holding a mop in one hand, a bucket in the other, and wearing a wide, excited grin.

  1. Howdy! My first line is from, "A Beautiful Blue Death," by Charles Finch.

    "The fateful note came just as Lenox was settling into his armchair after a long, tiresome day in the city."

    Enjoy!

  2. LOVE the cover! My first line is from Finding Love on the Oregon Coast by Angela Ruth Strong, a collection of 4 novella by different authors which will be released July 1st: "Christina gazed out the window at the balcony decorated for her wedding ceremony above the sparkling Columbia River in Portland, Oregon, before turning to face the full-length mirror."

  3. Beautiful cover!! I didn't realize they had books like this! Looks fun!!

    On my blog is the first line for a super sweet Christian historical trilogy, but here I'll share the first line of a massive book I'm reading for research: General Sherman's memoirs: “Nearly ten years have passed since the close of the civil war in America, and yet no satisfactory history thereof is accessible to the public; nor should any be attempted until the Government has published, and placed within the reach of students, the abundant materials that are buried in the War Department at Washington.” (Memoirs of William T. Sherman)

  4. My first line is:
    “A private plane sits on a runway in Martha’s Vineyard, forward stairs deployed.” ~ Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.
    I can’t wait to start this book. I’ve heard it’s good.

  5. Today on my blog I'm sharing a line from Lori Benton's book "A Flight of Arrows".

    I thought I'd share something different in the comment, an old favorite of mine.
    "From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a foot-path winds through green and shady meadows to the foot of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below." HEIDI by: Johanna Spyri

  6. Someone told me last night that Disney has Belle's castle now and you can go inside??? I just finished a memoir (?) FAITH TRANSPLANTED by Ray Jones to prepare for the author Q&A I'm hosting at the book's launch party this evening. (YAY!) Told with humor covered by faith, this is Ray's story from illness to transplant list to recovery. "Some days when I first wake up, for a brief moment, I forget what has occurred."

  7. On the blog today I am sharing the first line from Melody Carlson’s ‘Under a Summer Sky’ so I thought I would share the first line from the book I am currently reading:

    “The man relaxed in the wooden Adirondack chair in the screened-in porch of his cabin rental and stared out across the glistening waters of Lake Williwaw.” Stormy Lake by L.D. Stauth

  9. Incomplete Sentence by E.E.Kennedy: Tracey Parish sat at the red light and refused to fume, as she often did, over time she was kept waiting in traffic.............The light changed. Resolutely, she shifted into drive, merged into traffic, and was never seen alive again.

  14. Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney movie. I mean, the main character loves to read! And that library.....in my dreams! I was a little nervous when I saw this year's rendition, but I have to admit, I LOVED it :) This book looks like one I need to add to my TBR pile!
