    “When a man grows up in wild country, huntin’ food, eyes wide open for trouble, he knows when he’s being watched.
    From A Man With A Past by Mary Connealy


  2. I’m reading Before I Called You Mine by Nicole Deese. It’s absolutely amazing. Here’s a line from the chapter I’m currently on: “in the eighth grade I went on my first-ever real camping trip to the mountains with a group from my school.”
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚


  3. My first line is from the new one by Carrie Stuart Parks, Woman in Shadow:
    “Why are those dogs barking?” I pointed across the wooden picnic table toward two obviously upset canines yelping nearby.
    Fabulous book!

  4. From the Prologue of Yours is the Night by Amanda Dykes:
    October 24, 1921 Chalons-sur-Marne, France
    Ceremony for the choosing of the Unknown Soldier
    There are days you live over and over again for as long as you live. October twenty fourth of 1918, just days before the unending war ended, was one of mine.


  5. My first line comes from The Nature of Small Birds by Susie Finkbeiner.
    No matter how the world has changed over the course of my life, somehow crayons still smell the same way they did when I was a kid.


  6. My first line is from To Write a Wrong by Jen Turano:
    March 1887. New York City
    There was not a shadow of doubt left in Miss Daphne Beekman’s mind that her days as a successful novelist were numbered.


  7. “Green or brown. Brown or green. Phillip Clayton set the unwrapped crayon upright on the diner’s Formica tabletop so it stood like a mocking sentinel.”
    From The Cryptographer’s Dilemma by Johnnie Alexander


  8. Rosewater (The Wormwood Trilogy, #1), Book 1 of the Wormwood Trilogy, Winner of the Nommo Award for Best Novel, by Tade Thompson

    “I’m at the Integrity Bank job for forty minutes before the anxieties kick in. It’s how I usually start my day.”
