  1. The White Rose Resists will be a book I will start very soon!

    My first lines are from The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch:

    Seaton Estate Berkshire, England January 4, 1813

    “You’ll do as you’re told if you know what’s good for you. I won’t be humiliated again.”

    Just finished this phenomenal book!


  2. What an interesting theme? Did German students actually defy Hitler or is this completely fictionalized? My current read is Meant for Her by Joy Avery Melville. I will share the first line from Chapter 3, which is where I’m at right now. “The scent of grassy hay, sweet feed, warm horse flesh, and leather tack calmed Candi when she stepped through the main door of the stable.” I wish you a wonderful weekend!

  3. I’m currently reading Amish Reckoning by Jocelyn McClay. The first line is “Today was going to change his life.” Happy reading!

  4. Happy Friday! 🙂
    On my blog I’m sharing from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette. I’m currently on chapter 20, so I’ll share from there.
    “My family and Hakim’s family, along with Baz and his wife and daughters, were gathered around the long table in the courtyard, oil lamps flickering joyfully along its length.”
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

  5. Happy Friday! My first line is from “More Than Friends” by Autumn Macarthur:

    “Catriona Maclean returned the phone to its niche, slumped onto the worn oak bench in the entrance hall of the manse, and groaned out loud. She needed a man.”

  6. I’ve heard about this book, and hope to read it soon! My first line is from The Bridge to Belle Island “Benjamin Booker sat in the Old Bailey, pulse pounding. His most important case to date had finally been called to trial–his chance to prove himself to the firm’s partners.”
    Happy Friday!
