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.

  2. 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.

    The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.
