  1. Winter has arrived, but we are experiencing mostly mild temperatures for Michigan. We haven’t had more than a dusting of snow so far. But I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. I’m currently reading Imagine Heaven by John Burke. I’ll feature this book in a book review on my blog once I finish. The first line is: I sat up with a start.

    I wish you a wonderful weekend.


  2. Happy Friday! 🙂
    Today I’m sharing the first line from Julie Klassen’s novella, An Ivy Hill Christmas: It’s a great story. I highly recommend it. Currently, though, I’m reading To Dwell Among Cedars by Connilyn Cossette, so I’ll share a line from there:
    “Ronen had changed, although it had taken me no more than a few moments to recognize him when he’d arrived.”
    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚


  3. My first line comes from Linda Thompson’s new book: The Mulberry Leaf Whispers:
    Saturday April 18, 1942 Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan
    Sub-Lieutenant Matsuura Akira paced the open bridge of Nitto Maru. He had drawn the watch, as usual.
