Welcome to First Line Friday’s hosted by Hoarding Books.

Today I’m excited to be featuring A Perfect Weakness by Jennifer A. Davids. This tender story of love with its gentle reminder that no one is beyond redemption. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this story as much as I did. CLICK HERE to see my review.

  1. My first line is from Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.

    Ten-year-old Faith Lytton placed her hands on her hips —like Mama did when she was exasperated— and looked at the sad little group of puny troops allotted to her.

    Patricia’s book looks really goid!

    My first line comes from The Trial by Robert Whitlow.

    PROLOGUE
    Truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long.

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:

    “I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring.”

  4. Those dresses are gorgeous, but I’m sure glad I don’t have to finagle my way into one of them 🙂

    I just started “Nice to Come Home To” by Liz Flaherty. The first line is: Why didn’t you ever come back here?

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of Veronica Roth’s Carve the Mark on my blog today. Here, though, I’ll share the book I’ve just started to read – A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.

    “Once upon a time, a little girl helplessly watched as liquid gold spun a web across her tiny frame, racing to wrap her up in an icy cocoon.”

    I hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend and happy reading! 😊

  6. Happy Friday!😎

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, Oh My Stars by Sally Kilpatrick.

    And it came to pass in those days, that a decree went out from my mother that I would be playing the Virgin Mary in the Dollar General drive-through Nativity whether I liked it or not.

    Haha! I love those first lines and can’t wait to read this book!

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚

  7. On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

  8. Great cover!

    Over on my blog, I’m showcasing the first line from Carolyn Miller’s new novel, Miss Serena’s Secret. It’s SO good. I’m almost finished with the book, so here I will share the first line of chapter 26.

    “I cannot help you.”

    A bit blunt and harsh! Lol.
    I hope you’re having an awesome weekend filled with great reading time. 😀❤📚
