  1. I love all there writers in this collection. Will have to check it out. The book I’m sharing this week on my blog is “Before the Apocalypse” by Taylor Jaxon. This is a Young Adult Christian Suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter Fourteen of that same book: “Sam extended his hand through the doorway of the ivy-covered mansion. An appendage the size of a catcher’s mitt engulfed his palm.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  2. Haha love the first line!
    The book I’m sharing on my blog today is Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (12): “‘Do you think he followed you there?’ Parker asked, taking a bit of kung pao chicken.” Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Reading! 🙂

  3. Happy Friday!

    Today’s first lines come from Finding Wicked by Kathryn L. James

    “The day started out like any other, but then I received an email from Cordelia Irwin, the human resources director, and it was tagged urgent.”

    Sounds ominous, doesn’t it!

    I’m featuring lines from Nina Lane’s The Secret Thief on my blog today. I hope you can stop by!

  4. Happy Friday! My first line is from The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck:

    “He must finish. He must.”

  5. Whenever I see this collection I want to re-read it! I’m reading a novella today, The Treasured Book by Kathleen Fuller. Here are the first lines:

    “Lucy Fisher had never been so drenched in her entire life. Still, she managed a smile as her bus drove away.”

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I love novella collections 🙂

    Today on my blog I’m sharing from Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall, part of the Timeless Love collection. I’ll share the first line from another story in the collection here, Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo:

    “It wasn’t right to pray he would just die.”

  7. Happy Saturday! My first line is from Candace Cameron’s new book, Kind is the New Classy: “Not a day goes by that I’m not thankful for the amazing job I have. I get to entertain people through comedy, romance, drama and heartfelt storytelling by acting my way through your television screens.” Happy reading!

  8. This week, I’m showcasing the first line from The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Here, I will share the first line from the book I just started reading, More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer.

    July 1894 — Pecan Gap, TX
    Logan Fowler dismounted outside the Lucky Lady Saloon, anticipation thrumming in his veins.

    I hope you have a great weekend filled with lots of reading time!

Would love to hear your thoughts....
