First Line Friday

Today, I’d like to share  a line from this book…with which I am currently enchanted. I keep going back and forth between reading the paperback and listening to the audio version (which I borrowed from the library, and is such a great way to keep reading as I do my work around the house). The British accent on the audio version is ahb-su-lutely delightful!.

This is not a Christian fiction book. But it is an absolutely charming story about how the little island of Guernsey survived during WWII.


Dear Sidney,
Susan Scott is a wonder. We sold over forty copies of the book, which was very pleasant, but much more thrilling from my standpoint was the food.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

  1. I know a lot of people have loved this book, but I simply couldn’t get through it. I couldn’t do the format. I didn’t like that it was letters instead of a real storyline. Glad you seem to enjoy it though 🙂
    I forgot about this week being about favorite genre but I DID share one from one of my favorite authors. I have to say historical fiction is my favorite, but I also like suspense to change things up a bit. I’m currently in-between books but I’ll be be starting a new book after dinner tonight. Hope you have a great weekend with lots of quality reading time!

  2. This is on my to-read pile – I have family from the Channel Islands, so that’s another reason to read it.

    I’m featuring Burden of Proof by DiAnn Mills on my blog today, but I’m currently reading Calm Cool and Connected by Arlene Pellicane, which is about forming good online habits. Here’s the first line:

    “Imagine a small device that has gone from nonexistent to indispensable in less than a decade. You’ve probably guessed it. That amazing little invention is the smartphone.”

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Happy Weekend! My first line is from Until I Met You by Kimberly Rose Johnson, which is included in the collection A Christmas To Remember:

    “Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle.”

  4. Happy Friday! I’m featuring Lady of a Thousand Treasures by Sandra Byrd on my blog, here is the second line:

    “All present quickened as lightning pierced the ground just outside the wide panel of windows, like a finger pointing deep within the earth.”
