  1. Gorgeous cover Trisha!😀

    Happy Friday! My FLF comes from a book I will be reading soon, Her Fear by Shelley Shepard Gray…….

    Until that moment, Sadie Detweiler hadn’t thought mere words could hurt so badly. But as Harlan continued to speak, each word cutting her as deeply as if it were a shard of glass, Sadie felt her heart was bleeding.

    Have an awesome weekend and Happy Reading!😎

  2. Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Chasing the Wind by Paula Scott. Here I will post the first line from the prologue of Romeo and Juliet. It’s the book closest to me right now because I’m currently teaching it to my 9 Honors kiddos.

    “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood make civil hands unclean.”

    Have an excellent Friday and a great weekend!

  3. Happy Friday!
    My FLF is from one of my favorites by Terri Blackstock called Covenant Child.
    “There’s a question that haunts me in the blackest hours of night, when wasted moments crowd my dreams and mock the life I know. The question is this: How could a child born of privilege and promise grow up with nothing?”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I’m looking forward to this one soon!
    I’m reading Julie by Catherine Marshall right now. The first line is: “Our 1928 Willys-Knight had been climbing for at least ten miles, one hairpin turn after another, under a threatening sky.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Beautiful cover! On my blog, I’m featuring Jen Turano’s book, A Match of Wits. Here I will share the first line on page 113 of a book I’m currently reading, The Heaven Answer Book by Billy Graham. “Marriage in Heaven will be on a much higher plane because the church will be united with Christ.” Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  7. Gorgeous cover! It reminds me of the postcards we got around Christmas from my Grand Mother!
    Happy Friday!
    “Stop interrogating me. I’m not going to say anything different,” a panic-stricken voice shrieked after begging for the third time to leave for the hospital. “There was so much blood.”

    These lines come from Father Figure by James J Cudney. A suspense and family drama with an intricate plot like none other!

    I’m sharing from library books today, since it is National Library Week, so here is the first line from Laura V. Hilton’s Love by the Numbers:

    “He was gorgeous. Simply gorgeous.”
