First Line Fridays - The Number of Love

Friday, May 24, 2019

Happy (almost the last week of school) Friday!

I admit it, folks, I am STRESSING OUT! The end of the school year has me all like 😱😵😫😬😣😓...Between trying to finish up our curriculum on time, all the performances and special events, and working...The last couple of weeks have been crazy! Only a few more to go and we'll be DONE!!! This weekend is my son's ballet recital and he is the cutest little sailor ever! Taking a little break from the chaos, here is the first line of one of my NEW favorite books!

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from...

The Number of Love
Roseanna M. White

Old Admiralty Building
London, England
25 September 1917
The numbers marched across the page in a glory all their own.

PREORDER NOW! Releases June 4!

Head over to Hoarding Books to link up with your own FLF post! (Please keep it family 
friendly...Or note otherwise in the link up)


  1. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from A Modest Independence by Mimi Matthews today. Here is the first line from Chapter 10:

    "Jenny stood on the deck of the Indus, watching the ancient city of Alexandria come into view."

  2. I'm looking forward to reading The Number of Love! Today I'm sharing the first line from Finding Beautiful by Rebecca Friedlander: “What would it look like to pack your bags and travel the world in search of true beauty?”

  3. Happy Weekend! My first line is from "The Black Veil" by June Belfie:

    "Rebecca Gingerich rested her hands on the the deep milk-white sill of the kitchen window and peered out from the clapboard farmhouse she'd been born in nearly twenty-three years ago to the day."

  4. Oh, how cute! I loved it when my boys did ballet. Alas, it only lasted a few years. My eldest daughter is in her tenth year of ballet, though, so I guess that makes up for it!

    My first line this week comes from Flight of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse, but I'm also listening to Great Expectations by Charles Dickens in audio book format at the moment, so I'm going to share the first line from Chapter 51:

    What purpose I had in view when I was hot on tracing out and proving Estella's parentage, I cannot say.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. The low, keening wail reverberated from the walls of Nicole Dyer's apartment as fear skittered through her body.
    CHRISTMAS HIDEOUT by Susan Sleeman

  6. I'll be reading this one very soon!
    Sorry I'm a little late coming around this weekend! The book I shared on my blog this week is Vigilant by Sara Davison but it's also the book I'm currently reading so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (22) here: "Daniel stared at the computer screen like he'd been doing for hours, his mind racing." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)
