    Happy Friday! I have this book, and it’s on my list to read soon.
    My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Without Warning:
    “I had never been in the Oval Office before.
    But I’d always imagined my first time going differently.”

  2. Heather

    Fantastic first line! Happy Friday!

    That looks like a sweet book.

    Far-off screams filled the air and rattled six-year-old Jimmy Colton’s bones.
    (from Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse)

  6. Melissa

    “Ladies and gentlemen, the captain has asked that you remain in your seats for the remainder of your flight.”
