spring

Welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!! I haven’t participated in a long time and I really miss doing this! Happy Friday everyone!💙

Today, my first line comes from a book I am reading next month.

A faint but undeniable ear of corn lived on my left calf. I was born with it, a six-and-a-half-inch birthmark filled with alternating light-dark-light-dark pigmentation, which created a pattern that can only be described as corncob-like. “It won’t come off, Mama,” I said, scrubbing.

FROM GOODREADS

There’s no place like home—especially when home is Crocker County, Iowa
Jane Willow may have moved to Los Angeles to become a famous film critic, but when a family tragedy prompts her return to Crocker County, Iowa, for the first time in eighteen years, she is forced to confront everything she left behind—including her local fame for the 1993 Corn Queen crowning fiasco. Before Jane can escape her past a second time, disaster strikes, and she will have to find a way to right her mistakes and save herself from her regrets.
A love letter to the Midwest as well as a celebration of classic musicals, this ferociously smart and endearingly emotional novel brings home the saving grace of second chances.

NOW IT IS YOUR TURN! GRAB THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING, OPEN TO CHAPTER ONE, AND POST THE FIRST SENTENCE (OR SECOND SENTENCE) IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

  4. Happy Friday! My first (2) line(s) is from “Hope for Christmas” by Dr. Elizabeth Maddrey:

    “Cyan Hewitt stared out at the waves of the Pacific Ocean. The pebbly beach on Whidbey Island wasn’t comfortable for sitting, so he’d found himself doing a lot of standing on mornings when the sea called to him.”

  5. The cover is beautiful!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing from Airborne by DiAnn Mills. I just started reading Something Worth Doing by Jane Kirkpatrick: “Her dreams of late had been of books with maps of unknown places.”

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    September 8, 1994
    People considered him homeless because he didn’t have an address of his own, but Harvey James would’ve been homeless even if he owned the turreted mansion off State Route 460.

  8. I’m currently reading To Love A Prince by Rachel Hauck and it’s GREAT! The first line is “It’s said in the north country of Lauchtenland that the sea has a song and love blooms from the earth the same as flora and fauna.” I hope you have a nice weekend!
