~First Line Friday~

Give the Gift of Amazon Prime

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

Here goes…

When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist. They called me nymph, assuming I would be like my mother and aunts and thousand cousins. Least of the lesser goddesses, our powers weee so modest they could scarcely ensure our eternities. We spoke to fish and nurtured flowers, coaxed drops from the clouds or salt from the waves.

I’ve been trying a few of the different book subscriptions, and this one is by far the cheapest and best deal. The next subscription I am going to try is LitJoy their kits are $29.99. Do you have a favorite?

I remember being a kid and getting my 2 children’s books every month. I’m pretty sure my mom kept forgetting that we had it, or I think she would have stopped our subscription before she did.

Have you read either book by Miller? What are your thoughts? I’m so excited to finally read it!


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. Never read a mythological book, Lana.

    My First Line Friday is….

    NEVER LOOK BACK. That’s what Ben Blackwell’s grandfather, Big E, always said.

    Taken from The Rancher’s Redemption by Melinda Curtis.
    Have a great weekend. 😊

  2. Sounds intriguing but I’m still working on a couple of books I started, besides, if I tried to read a book with a glass of wine, I’d be asleep before I finished the first page, lol! Reading already makes me tired (if I’m doing it in bed) and wine would only make that worse. I guess that’s why it’s taking me forever to finish! I remember when I could knock out a big book in a week! What has happened to me?? 🙂 Maybe I’m just getting old.

    • I can’t read in bed either. Maybe a page or two. I mostly read early mornings, when it’s naptime for little ones, or on my breaks. Some of the books I read are audiobooks, so whenever I am in the car alone I am playing one. But I’m not often in the car alone, usually Ryan is with me or the kids, and they prefer music. Lol 😝

  3. First line of the introduction: “Guess what? When it comes right down to it, wherever you go, there you are.” This book, published first in 1994 by MJF Books of New York, is a Jon Kabat-Zinn masterpiece in mindfulness… the importance of attention and awareness in the present. I have the 10th Anniversary Edition – and have reread it several times. It’s all marked up! “Wherever You Go, There You Are” should be in every reader’s library!

    • That sounds like I’ll have to look into it! I love it when you love a book so much you Mark it all up with notes and highlighted text!
      Thanks for sharing that with me Jan! Happy Friday!

  4. We start with the oldest—letters mostly. My son reads Matie’s words to me (Martha, dearest) and mine to her, thin blue airmail homing birds of love.
    From Beautiful Exiles by Meg Waite Clayton. Fictional novel based on Earnest Hemingway and his mistress during WWII

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today, my first lines come from A Vineyard Christmas by Jean Stone…

    The turnout was better than Annie had expected. It was, after all, a bitter, see-your-breath kind of morning, with a brisk December wind whirling around Vineyard Sound.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm!😊💕
