First Line Fridays – The Read-Aloud Family

Happy Friday!

I love where I live! The mornings require jackets…In the afternoons you need shorts and the a/c turned on. School starts and a new year of imparting my love of books to my children begins. This week I chose to feature a nonfiction *GASP* book.

I am SO excited about this book. And I hope you can get your hands on it.

Happy Reading!

Today’s first line is from…

It was just an ordinary Tuesday, really, but it turned out to be so much more than that.

  1. My first line is from chapter 6 of The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear:

    Morning dawned with a bit more edge to the wind and the clouds more thick and grey, spitting definite rain.


  2. I’ve heard a bit about this book. I must check it out. We do lots of reading as a family.

    I’m sharing the first line from “My Hands Came Away Red” by Lisa McKay on my blog today, but I’ve also just finished reading Lisa Harris’s new release “A Secret to Die For”:

    A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out of the novel she was reading.

    Have a great weekend!


  3. I love that first line. I will have to check this book out.

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Tracy Groot’s novel The Stones of my Accusers. Currently, I am reading Finding Us by Heather Moore. So far, it’s a fun book. One of those books that has me smiling with each page! I am starting chapter 7, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Opening the bookshop on Saturday morning wasn’t as bad as Felicity thought it might be.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend filled with quality reading time!


  4. Happy Friday!

    My First Lines come from Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne…..

    “This is totally lame. Why do we have to stay here and wait for you? We can walk home in, like, ten minutes.” Daniela Capelli drew in a deep breath and prayed for patience, something she seemed to be doing with increasing frequency these days when it came to her thirteen-year-old daughter. “It’s starting to snow and already almost dark.”

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕📚


  5. I haven’t heard of this one but that first line sure catches you!
    This week on my blog I shared the first line from Playing for More by Case Keenum to celebrate NFL season. (I feel the need to share that I’m a Colts fan). I am also currently reading Indivisible by Travis Thrasher so I will share the first line of that here: “She carries the memories and always will.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂
