First Line Fridays - High as the Heavens


Happy Friday!

Kate Breslin is one of my top favorite authors! It has been TWO YEARS since her last release. I am so SO excited to read this one this month! Even if I didn't know Kate was such a FABULOUS author. I would pick this up based on the cover alone! WHat do you think of it? 

What are you reading this weekend?



Brussels 1917
Like manna from heaven, the words fell from the sky.

AHHHHH I had to literally force myself to put this down after reading that.

Good morning! My first line is from, "Thunder on the Right," by Mary Stewart.

"The Hotel du Pimene, Gavarnie, takes its name from the great peak of the high Pyrenees in whose shadow, at early morning, it lies."

Hey Rachel! I'm excited to read High as the Heavens! Love that gorgeous cover!

Turtle Springs, Kansas
April 1866

Pa had some kind of nerve, up and dying like that-just when I'd gotten used to Frank being gone. Adjusting her somber bonnet, Caroline Kane exited what was now her inn, onto the boardwalk and then stepped down to the hard-packed dirt street.

First line from Dime Novel Suitor by Carrie Fancett Pagels. This is my "debut" as a character in the story.

Love this start! It is a beautiful cover, I am sharing another cozy mystery today on the blog but here is another delightful line: "Blame it on the rhubarb." -Treble at the Jam Fest by Leslie Budewitz.

Happy Reading to you today!

Sounds good! Happy Friday! My first line is from Widow by Denise Weimer: "Oglethorpe County, Georgia, June 1857, An angel of light stood before me, blonde, beautiful, one hand behind his back."

That's a great first line!
My first line is:
The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.
“The Road to Paradise” by Karen Barnett

I took my son to our local public library this afternoon to pick up some "Who Was" books, as he has joined a kids summer book club for the "Who Was" books. Of course while there I looked some for books that I may enjoy and guess what I found?! "A High As the Heavens"! I think I may have actually let out a little squeak of joy (there were a few heads that turned). I borrowed the book and will be reading it very soon!

The Lost Boy by Thomas Wolfe : Light came and went and came again, the blooming strokes of three o'clock beat out across the town in thronging bronze, light winds of April blew the fountain out in rainbow sheets, until the plume returned and pulsed, as Grover turned into the Square.

That is a striking cover! My first line is from Lisa Wingate's BEFORE WE WERE YOURS: "My story begins on a sweltering August night, in a place I will never set eyes upon."

Lately, I have resorted to stalking. Not a person, but a book.

I love that first line!

My first line is :
“The first inkling that something was wrong was the waking in the darkness to find the cat pawing at my face.” ~ The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
I’ve heard great things about this book. I am really looking to reading this mystery/thriller.

I love Becky Wade's books so much that while I'm waiting until her next release, I just have to read them all again.

Then Came You: "Sylvie left me today."

Amanda Tero said...

Wow, that's a great first line!

Gorgeous cover!

“Maude Welling’s twelve-year-old brother, Jack, raced across the waxed wood floor of the soda shop, straight toward her, then skidded to a halt.”
This first line comes from the book I am currently reading - My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island by Carrie Fancett Pagels
