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?

Also, be sure to hop along to all of these other blogs and see what First Lines they have to share!

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).


"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." II Corinthians 3:17
