First Line Fridays: July 17th

This weekly meme is hosted by Hoarding Books.  Here's a book I listened to a few weeks ago:

First Line: "The dragonflies live down by the bayou, but there's no way to know which one's my brother."

Thoughts? Did it grab your attention? Let me know below.

Also, be sure to stop by Hoarding Books to check-out other first-liners.


  1. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L. Gray: It's a really fun read. I'm currently on chapter 12, so I'll share from there.
    "By the time Saturday rolls around, I'm convinced that Father Time has a master's degree in torture."
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚

    1. Thanks for sharing your quote! Happy reading!

  2. Set The Stars Alight by Amanda Dykes
    Candlewick Commons London, England. 2000
    To step inside the watchmaker’s cottage was to step outside of time.

  3. Happy Friday!!
    Over on my blog my first line is from A Bride's Journey to Colorado Territory by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer.
    "I said you need to stay away from him, Sister"

    Have an amazing weekend!

  4. My current read is Practically Married by Karin Beery. I'm just starting the second chapter, so I will share the first line of that chapter. "The sharp edge of reality sliced through Russ' heart." May you have a blessed week.
