Hey Loves! How is everyone doing on this lovely Friday?
This week has been quite stressful on my end. It’s one thing to know a hurricane is coming towards your home state and will probably affect you, but it’s another when you find out that your home is in the direct path. So this week has been mostly a lot of prepping, praying, and trying to stay calm. I can’t help but praise the Lord right now because it turned out to between a CAT 1 and CAT 2 by the time it hit us here in the Tampa Bay area. I am alive and well. There is no damage to the house at all. We did lose power, but only for a few hours after the storm had passed. We literally just got our internet back yesterday so there almost wasn’t a First Line Friday post today. Please keep Florida in your prayers because so many of my friends are still without power. Some are devastated due to damage to their homes. Hurricane Irma was a brutal storm.
Earlier in the week, I started collecting books and making sure that my Kindle would be fully charged so that I would have something to read while we ride out the storm. It was so hard to concentrate this past week, that hardly any reading happened. So I decided that I’m going to share a fun and light read that I read awhile ago.
This is technically a middle-grade novel, but people of all ages will enjoy it. I sure did! This should be the next Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. Plus, kids won’t even realize that they’re learning. It’s filled with vocabulary words that they should know and tons of history lessons. See my review here.
The book I’m featuring today is: The League and the Lantern by Brian Wells
And the first line is:
“Is he dead?”
The voice was muffled and fuzzy. It sounded like a girl to Jake, but he wasn’t quite sure. Everything was black and spinning.
Okay, I know that’s actually three lines, but they were necessary. 🙂
Without further ado, let’s get started. Grab the closest book to you and leave a comment with the first line.
Let me know your first line in the comments & then head over to see what First Lines these friends are sharing today:
