First Line Friday #5

Happy Friday!

First Line Friday

It’s Friday which means it’s time to share first lines from our favorite books.

Today, I’m sharing the first line from the book I reviewed today. (I’m cheating and giving you two lines.)

Chautona Havig's None So Blind

“Her arms stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably.” 

I love Chautona’s writing and you can also check out my review here.

In the comments, leave the first line from the book nearest you and then head over to see first lines from some of my blogging friends:

  1. Becky Smith

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Karen Kirst’s new LIH book The Engagement Charade, coming out July 1st (and it’s REALLY good!): “Alexander Copeland’s one goal in life was to be left alone.”

      Happy Friday! I haven’t heard of Karen Kirst. Man, that title sounds intriguing! And the first line even more so.

  2. Trisha

    I’m currently reading (and loving) All Of You by Sarah Monzon. “Lieutenant Michael “Finch” Carrington pulled up the zipper of his green flight suit and stared at the mass on the opposite rack.”

    1. momentsdippedinink

      That’s on my TBR pile. 🙂 Sounds fascinating!

  3. Amanda Tero

    I almost signed up to review this one with Celebrate Lit, but my reading schedule has been kinda full. 😛 Neat first line!!

    1. momentsdippedinink

      I know what you mean. 🙂

    Silvery moonlight slanted through the closed shutters, faintly illuminating Caroline Fletcher’s bedroom.

    Candle in the Darkness (Refiner’s Fire Book 1) by Lynn Austin

    Happy Friday!
    My first line is:
    “It started with a phone call, deceptively simple and easy to ignore.” ~All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda.

      Hmmm…. my curiosity is peaked. 🙂

  6. Kathleen Denly

    Great first line. Makes me wonder if it’s because her arms are now exposed or if it’s just because she is choosing to wake up and face the day. Happy Friday! 🙂

    1. momentsdippedinink

      Haha. Neither one. 🙂

  7. Jessica Baker

    Love this book! And anything else she writes 😊

  8. Beth Erin

    Chautona is one of my favorites!

    Unless you get one of those miracles they’re always talking about in church, I don’t see how you’ll be able to keep the business open into spring.
    Weaver’s Needle by Robin Carroll

  9. Chautona Havig

    Aw, thanks for sharing the line! I almost didn’t use that line since it’s more omniscient than third person, but I wanted it. So I did.

  10. Chautona Havig

    For fun, here are the opening lines to the sequel:

    A knock. A voice. Blissful silence. She rolled over, attempted a one-eyed glance at the clock, but the eye refused to cooperate. The revolting sensation of drool rolling down her chin prompted a backhanded swipe across her mouth as she snuggled down into the covers.
