First Line Friday | 5.26.17

Happy Friday!! I'm trying not to bombard everyone with "The Secret Slipper" but since it released yesterday, why not use that first line? Makes my job of figuring out which of the 350 books on my bookshelves to choose from easier (I'll do that next week). ;)

The first line of "The Secret Slipper" is...

"Another grave. This time, a short one."
("The Secret Slipper" by Amanda Tero)

And I do promise... it's not a morbid story. ;) Today is the last sale-day for Kindle copies of both "The Secret Slipper" and its prequel, "Befriending the Beast."

Commercial over. ;P 
What is the newest book that you've read?
And... do you have a first line handy??

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

I'm looking forward to reading this soon!

I have the first line from Teresa Tysinger's upcoming release on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from 'Nightshade' by Ronie Kendig, in honour of its recent re-release:

“Gut pressed to the spine of his Hayabusa, Max Jacobs bore down the mountainous two-lane road.”

Have a great weekend!

My first line comes from FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee.

Six weeks ago, I woke up in a cabin in the north woods of Maine with no memory of the last two years or any pertinent details of my life before.

Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

My first line is:
Once there was a tree… ~The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
I have been reading this book to my kids every night for the last month. They love it!

Sounds like a sad start. But I'm sure it get's better! It is a great first line. Leaves you wondering! To see my first line, you'll have to drop by my blog this week. I try to have a new line to comment with (I snatch a book from my son), but I was running late this morning. I hope you have a nice weekend!

Becky Smith said...

Happy Friday!! I look forward to reading both of these!
My first line is from White by Denise Weimer: “The dream started the way Jennifer’s actual visit to the house at 104 Main Street, Hermon, had begun, on a road that hurtled past green fields & dust-blown wildflowers into forever, ending in a community time had forgotten.”

Andie said...

Hi, and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I was going to sign up for this tour but I have been a little overwhelmed lately. I hope to read it!

Beth Erin said...

Congratulations on your new release, Amanda!!! I'm currently reading...

The euphoria of winning a hard case vied in her thoughts with wondering what came next as Haden McCarthy left the Alexandria courthouse.

Oooh! I must go check those books out!

From the prologue of Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection
Kansas, 1865
Abigail Melton entered the kitchen to the sight of her mother slumped over the table, a telegram clutched in one hand.

Congrats on your new release! On my blog is the first line from Irene Onorato’s upcoming release so I have decided to share the first line from a book that’s gotten buried on my kindle entitled Back Home Again by Melody Carlson.

“Thin rays of afternoon sunlight filtered through the leaves of the old maple tree that dominated the front yard of the Howard family home.”

I'm so glad you shared this. It's on my TBR list. :)

Here's mine from a book I just finished reading: Count Me in by Mikal Dawn.

"The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer's neck stood at attention."
