Aven peered down at the letter again, noted the address written in Aunt Dorothe's hand, then looked back to the wooden sign that was staked into the ground.

  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My first lines come from Loving Grace by April Smith.

    I’M LATE. THE PHONE IS already ringing off the wall by the time I make it to my desk. I toss my keys and bag to the side, not really bothering with where they land. I’ll get them later. I grab the phone and snag the corner of the desk with my hip. That’s going to leave a mark.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊

    My first line comes from The Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard

    Proluge
    November 1942

    The news that June's grandfather was being evicted had come from her older sister Mary, who worked in town at Langham's Drug Store.

    Marianne Neumann’s fingers were shaking so hard she could barely pry open the first record book. There were half a dozen more in the drawer. How could she possibly search through all of them?

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from This Freedom Journey by Misty M. Beller:

    "This journey I take seems foolish to others, yet I can't help the yearning that fuels me. ~ Adrien's Journal"

  6. I’m sharing from Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton on my blog today, so here is the rather long first line from chapter 2:

    “The babysitter was late, Addie and Walsh were flying around the house in superhero capes yelling the Batman theme song–“Da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Batman!”–and Jenna had just poured a mug of coffee when Walsh bumped into her from behind, spilling hot liquid down the front of her black Full Cup Coffee T-shirt.”

    Happy Friday!

  7. This is on my to-read pile. I keep hearing great things about it.

    I'm sharing from The Forgiving Hour by Robin Lee Hatcher on the blog today. Not that I managed to stop with the first line—I've now finished it!

    Here's another great line, from Chapter Thirty. This is one I've been learning the truth of in the last year, attending my church prayer meeting with ladies three or four decades older than me:

    Being a Christian isn't a destination; it's a lifelong journey. There's always something new to learn along the way, always something fresh to be revealed.

  9. This week for FLF, I am showcasing Roseanna M. White's novel Whispers From the Shadows. Here, I will post the first line from chapter 2 in the book I'm just starting today, The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham.

    "Em, you look so improved."

    Kind of sounds insulting...I'll have to read on and find out the context. πŸ˜‰

    Hope you're having a blessed weekend with lots of fun reading time. 😊

  10. The book I shared on my blog is The Hidden Side by Heidi Chiavaroli, but I'm currently reading Things I Never Told You by Beth K Vogt so I'll share that first line here: "The what-ifs taunted me every time I visited my parents, but any hope of beginning again had vanished years ago--if there'd ever been one. Hope you have a great weekend!
