First Line Friday

First Line is my favorite weekly post! Booklovers can share the first line or two of the book you are currently reading…💗

Here I go..

It all started when mom screamed. I thought she’d seen a scorpion, but when I got to the kitchen, she was waving a letter over her head and dancing in circles barefoot. After a year of being homeschooled, I was going to get to go to school again. Did you catch that word, get?

I haven’t started this one yet, I am reading Dragon Pearl, both of which have Rick Riordan’s name on them and so far Dragon Pearl is awesome!

What are you reading this Friday afternoon? Have you read this one yet or Dragon Pearl? I bought this one for both my son and I.

I had an afternoon out at the bookstore and I was super disciplined. I would have loved to leave with a grocery cart 🛒 full of books, and I really wanted Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles but Barnes and Noble was out…🤨

I’d love to hear your thoughts and read your First Line…If you were to leave Barnes and Noble with a stack of books, what is top on your list this week?

Happy Friday friends & Happy Reading!💗

  1. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from the book It Started With Christmas byJenny Hale…..

    “I want to spend Christmas at the cabin.” Nana’s voice came from the dark stairway, startling Holly McAdams and making her jump as she walked in the front door, the warmth of the little house a stark contrast to the icy cold outside.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊🎃💕

  2. “Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through.” Uprooted – Naomi Novik

  3. The sky above Diamond Head was a spray of gold as the sun seemed to rise up out of the crater itself. From atop its windy hill in Kalihi-uka – “inland Kalihi” – Kapi’olani Home took in the sweeping view, from the grassy caldera of Diamond Head to the concrete craters of the new dry docks at Pearl Harbor.

  4. I am thrilled to announce I have published my debut novel this week on Amazon called “Another Hot Mess” So I would like to share my opening lines ( and I mean lines lol!) Sorry for the shameless self promotion but here is a link to the Kindle edition…can’t wait to hear everyone’s feedback

    “15 Minutes” bellowed the club manager as he banged his fist rapidly on the bathroom stall door.

    “Fuck!” she exclaimed out loud. She was just about to tap out a rail of coke from her vile on the back of the toilet when the knocking scared the shit out of her. Her hand shook so much that over half of the vial poured out.

  5. “Lale tries not to look up. He reaches out to take the piece of paper being handed to him. He must transfer the five digits onto the girl who held it. There is already a number there, but it has faded. He pushes the needle into her left arm, making a three, trying to be gentle. Blood oozes. But the needle hasn’t gone deep enough, and he has to trace the number again….”

    First lines of the prologue to The Tattooist of Auschwitz. Just about to start it.

  6. “Wake up,” my sister Beth says. “We won’t make the first bus.”
