  1. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd. Here I’ll share the first line from chapter 30.

    “Henry winced as he gripped the newel post and pivoted from the stair’s landing to the next flight of stairs.” — The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd (first line from chapter 30)

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Lexi Blake’s Close Cover.

    “The light in his face blocked out the view of the man interrogating him. Remy blind in the glare and sighed. He should have known things wouldn’t go the way he’d hoped it would.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lacey Black’s upcoming release My Kinda Player on my blog. I’d love you to stop by!

  3. I am so very excited to read this book! Katie Ganshert is an amazing writer.

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It’s the book closest to me right now because I’m currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean.”

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

  4. I love that cover. All blurry.
    Happy Friday!
    “Stop interrogating me. I’m not going to say anything different,” a panic-stricken voice shrieked after begging for the third time to leave for the hospital. “There was so much blood.”
    These lines come from Father Figure by James J Cudney. A suspense and family drama with an intricate plot like none other!

  5. I had to look at the calendar to make sure that today was Monday, April 16th. Just received your “First Line Friday” post this morning.
    Thought you would want to know.
