First Line Fridays | 3.24.2017


Let innocence be your mask.
(from Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White)

I have never, ever read such an amusing character such as Winter in Ring of Secrets. She wears her mask beautifully -- and in such a way that makes me laugh out loud. But that's all I'm gonna say. ;) You may read my review here.

What's your first line this week?

Happy Friday! I have several of Roseanna's books that I really need to move up on my TBR list!
My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Without Warning:
“I had never been in the Oval Office before.
But I’d always imagined my first time going differently.”

I was staring out of the classroom window and daydreaming of adventure when I spotted the flying saucer. - Armada by Ernest Cline.

Happy w/end!

The Culper Ring Series sounds wonderful!

Here is my first line.

Claire Murray headed for the barn, a burst of cold air lifting her long blonde hair and tossing it into her face. – To Dance with Dolphins by Bonnie Leon

Happy Friday and Happy Reading!

Here's the first line (and the rest of paragraph, because I like this is the opening to one of my favorite books. ;)

"Want to be a school-master, do you? You? Well, what would *you* do in Flat Crick deestrick, *I'd* like to know? Why, the boys have driv off the last two, and licked the one afore them like blazes. You might teach a summer school, when nothin' but children come. But I 'low it takes a right smart *man* to be school-master of Flat Crick in the winter. They'd pitch you out of doors, sonny, neck and heels, afore Christmas."

~from THE HOOSIER SCHOOLMASTER, by Edward Eggleston (late 1800s book with good plot, good writing, and good Christianity).
