Friday, January 19, 2018

Happy Friday! Not gonna lie...It has been quite the week here...New adventures...sick kiddo (and husband)...lots of reading...and crazy weather...Rain, snow, rain, snow, wind. So I am REALLY excited for the and quiet..I hope. Prayers appreciated that myself and kiddo #2 don't get sick...

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

Across the Blue
by Carrie Turansky

February 1909
Isabella Grayson's shoes sank into the plush carpet of Broadland's south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!

I am starting this book today. I am super excited to dive into it! Edwardian is one of my absolute favorite eras to read...or watch (yes, I am a Downton Abbey fan)! 

What is your favorite Edwardian story(book, TV show, movie)???

Comment below with your first line and head over to Hoarding Books to link up with your own FLF post!

  2. Happy Friday! My first line is from Callum's Compass by Sara L. Foust:

    "A persistent knock at the front door dragged Kat Williams awake."

  3. I love that cover. SO pretty! I haven't read many of Carrie's books, but you've intrigued me about this one. :)

    Happy Friday and happy reading!

  5. I can't wait to read this book! I have it on pre-order.

    Happy Friday!

    Over on my blog, I am featuring Brett Armstrong's novel Destitutio Quod Remissio. It's an interesting read so far. Here I will post the first lines from chapter four of this book.

    "The streets were filled beyond the usual that day, or perhaps it only appeared so to Marcus. The market district was expansive enough to accommodate thousands. Over it looked the tall stone buildings surrounding the huge open Forum that was the city's center for centuries. All of the grand structures were washed white by the noon's radiance and loomed large over the transactions of Rome's citizens."

  6. I love the cover, and I'm looking forward to reading this as well!

    I’m about to start reading The Boy in the Hoodie, a young adult novel by debut Australian author Catriona McKewon. Here’s the first line:

    Before I met him, there wasn’t much I knew about the boy in the hoodie.He seemed to live above the rules.
