First Line Friday - Runaway River

December 18, 2020

 Happy Friday!!

Can you believe there are only 7 days until Christmas?! Who is ready?! I must say this year I was determined to be done shopping way before the week of and I can proudly say I have accomplished that! Now all that awaits me in my closet (which looks like an Amazon warehouse 😂) are the gifts that need to be wrapped! Goal is to work on that on Sunday! Let's see if that happens. We have even accomplished most of our baking! Which is impressive for me this year! Last year I was so behind and this year I am feeling like I have it altogether... let's hope I haven't forgotten anything!

It is First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books and today my first line come from my current read Runaway River by Kim D. Taylor. 

Now it's your turn! Grab the closest book to you and drop the first line in the comments!


  1. I finally got this book today, I’ve been waiting all month:
    The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark,
    From the prologue:
    Charleston, South Carolina, 1860
    The candlelight sent a shadow of Rose up against the wooden wall. From the shadow, Rose looked taller. Stronger. Funny thing about shadows. They made even the smallest things into monsters or fairies or whatever folks wanted.
    Happy reading!

  2. That is A LOT of children! Happy weekend and happy reading! :)

  3. Today, I'm sharing the first line from The Right Kind of Fool by Sarah Loudin Thomas. "As the sun climbed above the horizon, strokes of lavender, orange, and pink painted the awakening sky." Have a good rest of the weekend!
