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

I am a bit late today on my blog… but better late today than never. I hope you are all well this evening.

Here goes…

“Beware all who enter here, for things once seen cannot be unseen. There are monsters among us. They are crafty and sly, patient and wise.

But wait, you say. If such things exist, why do we not see them? Prove to us such things are real. It’s your human sight, dear friends, that hinders you.”

Title: A Monster Like Me 5A14BF46-7308-4431-9742-FC0EF637CFAD

I have only read those first lines that I’ve shared with you so far, but this is my weekend read! Maybe with our daylight savings change on Saturday I’ll get in an extra hour of reading in and get to my next book The Mother-in-Law.😳

Will you be changing your clocks this weekend where you live? I’ve just finished up Cogheart, a middle grade, steampunk- sci-fi book that was lots of fun!

What are you reading this Friday afternoon? Have you read this one yet or plan to?

I’d love to hear your thoughts and read your First Line…

Happy Friday friends & Happy Reading this weekend!💗

  1. Happy Friday!😀

    My first lines come from a book I’m very excited to be reading soon, Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverni……..

    The heavy iron doors open and for a moment Mildred stands motionless and blinking in the sunlight, breathless from the sudden rush of cool, fresh air caressing her face and lifting her hair. The guard propels her forward into the prison yard, his grip painful and unyielding around her upper arm.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!💕

  2. Later, when memory was all she had to sustain her, she would come to cherish it: Old Honolulu as it was then, as it would never be again. To a visitor it must have seemed a lush garden of fanciful hybrids: a Florentine-style palace shaded by banyan and monkeypod trees; wooden storefronts flourishing on dusty streets, cuttings from America’s Old West; tall New England church steeples blooming above the palm and coconut groves. Moloka’i by Alan Brennert.

    • I’ve seen this book but I’ve never read it. I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading and have a wonderful weekend!

  3. “Fear” by Bob Woodward: “In August 2010, six years before taking over. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Steve Bannon, then 57 and a producer of right-wing political films, answered his phone.”
