      As a mother of a three-year-old and a one-year-old, I have a board book near 95% of the time. 🙂

  1. Amanda Tero

    The music theme appeals to me. How neat!!

    Here’s a non-fiction first line (for a fiction, visit my blog if you’ve not already): “Nearly ten years have passed since the close of the civil war in America, and yet no satisfactory history thereof is accessible to the public; nor should any be attempted until the Government has published, and placed within the reach of students, the abundant materials that are buried in the War Department at Washington.” (Memoirs of William T. Sherman)

      That’s what caught me first too. Thanks for sharing.

    My first line is:
    “A private plane sits on a runway in Martha’s Vineyard, forward stairs deployed.” ~ Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.
    I can’t wait to start this book. I’ve heard it’s good.

      Sounds interesting!

  3. Becky Smith

    I’ve heard of this book and author. Happy Friday! My first line is from Finding Love on the Oregon Coast by Angela Ruth Strong, a collection of 4 novella by different authors which will be released July 1st: “Christina gazed out the window at the balcony decorated for her wedding ceremony above the sparkling Columbia River in Portland, Oregon, before turning to face the full-length mirror.”

      I need to read this just because the main character has my first name. 🙂 It’s rare I find one.

  4. Trisha

    Today on my blog I’m sharing a line from Lori Benton’s book “A Flight of Arrows”.

    I thought I’d share something different in the comment, an old favorite of mine.
    “From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a foot-path winds through green and shady meadows to the foot of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below.” HEIDI by: Johanna Spyri

    1. momentsdippedinink

      It’s been years since I read Heidi! Wow, brought me back!

  5. Karen Sargent

    I just finished a memoir (?) FAITH TRANSPLANTED by Ray Jones to prepare for the author Q&A I’m hosting at the book’s launch party this evening. (YAY!) Told with humor covered by faith, this is Ray’s story from illness to transplant list to recovery. “Some days when I first wake up, for a brief moment, I forget what has occurred.”

    1. momentsdippedinink

      That’s a strong first line!

  6. JaneReads

    I’ve never heard of the book, but I like the cover and the first line intrigues me, I’ll have to check it out. On the blog today I am sharing the first line from Melody Carlson’s ‘Under a Summer Sky’ so I thought I would share the first line from the book I am currently reading:

    “The man relaxed in the wooden Adirondack chair in the screened-in porch of his cabin rental and stared out across the glistening waters of Lake Williwaw.” Stormy Lake by L.D. Stauth

    1. momentsdippedinink

      Oooo. I’ll have to check out your blog in a bit. I love Melody Carlson!

  7. Andi

    I’ve not heard of this book or this author. Nice line.

    Happy First Friday of June!

    1. momentsdippedinink

      I hadn’t either! She’s new. I think this book launched in December 2016–and it’s her debut. I can’t wait to see what more she has coming.

      Happy first Friday!

  8. Heather

    I completely agree with that first line! There have been so many songs that have impacted my life…Speechless by Steven Curtis Chapman, Sacred Hideaway by 4Him, Beloved by Jordan Feliz….just to name a few. 🙂

  9. Jessica Baker

    That first line is awesome!! The cover is very interesting too. Makes me wonder where this girl is going to go!
