  1. Haha! I’ve never thought of that as a graduation book, but I guess I can see how it’s appropriate. 🙂

    I’m featuring the first line from ‘Dancing in the Rain’ by Eileen Rife and Jennifer Slattery on my blog today, but I’m currently up to chapter eleven, so here’s the first line from chapter eleven:

    “Nervous energy filled Loni’s stomach as her plane made its descent into Blountville, Tennessee.”

  2. My first line is from The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep from the Mayflower Brides series.
    This from Chapter 18.

    Night faded like a bruise, the predawn darkness lightening in increments from black to indigo, painting the world in deep blue.

    Michelle certainly has a lyrical way with words. This book is not unlike Last of the Mohicans only much more readable than Cooper!

  3. I love this book. My husband and I often read it to our daughter. She loves the rhymes.

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from To Kill a Mockingbird — one of my most favorite books ever written. So here I will share from the book I am currently reading, The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck. I am just beginning chapter 14, so I will share the first line from there.

    “Try as I might, I can’t release Sam’s kiss from my memory.”

    Have a great weekend!


  4. We just attended my daughters 5th grade graduation yesterday . . .off to middle school next year!

    Today’s first line comes from Often by Danielle Norman.

    “I should have guessed that it was going to be one of those days and just gone home and back to bed.”

    I’m featuring first lines by Lauren Blakely’s upcoming release Part-Time Lover. Stop by to check them out!


  5. Happy Friday Rachel!
    We read this book to our two sons when they were little and then to our grandson. Great book.

    My first line Friday is from a book I received in the mail today…
    The Hawaiian Discovery (Sequel to The Hawaiian Quilt) by Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter.

    Middlebury, Indiana

    Ellen Lambright finished sweeping the kitchen floor and paused from her work to brew a cup of tea.

    blessings, Tina


  6. Happy Friday!
    The book I’m sharing on my blog this week is Unblemished by Sara Ella but it’s also the book I’m currently reading so I’ll share the first line from chapter 4 here: “The expression on El’s face before the wall closed was all the proof I required.” Hope you have a happy Memorial Day weekend! 🙂


  7. I read OH, THE PLACES YOU GO to my high school seniors on their last day. We finish the book with us all in tears. I can never get through the line “Kid, you’ll move mountains” without choking up! I’d read somewhere that Dr. Seuss originally wrote that book as a graduation address. — Here’s a cool idea for moms. Get a copy of the book, and at the end of each year, ask your child’s teacher(s) to write a note inside the book to your child (secretly). Then at high school graduation, surprise your child with the book and all the notes from previous teachers. I’ve had a couple parents do this for their children. Since I teach seniors, I get to see the book when it’s completed. Such a meaningful gift…
