First Line Friday

on Saturday!!!

Thanks Kathy. :) You can find Kathy at
FIRST LINE FRIDAY...First lines have always intrigued me since I heard an author say that writing the first sentence is, by far, the most difficult part of writing a novel. The reasoning was that a first sentence can make the reader continue reading or cause the book to be tossed aside.So, go to your To Be Read Pile, choose as many books as you want and share the first line. Be sure to include the title and author so that if your reader also finds it intriguing, they can find the book.Also, share your thoughts about the first line. Does it draw you in? Is it...exciting...thought provoking...scary...funny?
I'm really excited to read a series of books by Diane Chamberlain. My friend Lori, who can be found here found her books and highly recommended them. I started reading her work and she's a very talented author. Anyway the series of books are Keeper of the Light, Kiss River and Her Mother's Shadow. I love when books span generations and I'm very into family sagas right now.
I'm finally to the final book in this series by Diane Chamberlain. It's called Her Mother's Shadow and I can't wait to get it started. It'll probably be tomorrow. Here's the first line.
Christmas 1990
There was cheer in the house in the heart of Manteo.
Cheating here because I know the back story to the first line but it should be a really good read too. It's about Lacey and how she wants to be just like her Mother who died but does she really? I can't wait to find out what happens with her.
