First Line Friday

The Easter Egg

It’s FRIDAY which means I get to share a great line once a week with your from a book I am reading. I found this to be an exciting and entertaining way to find new authors, books and bloggers. So I am opening up the book I have been reading this week, and going to the first chapter and finding the first line…

This Weeks First Line Friday Brought to You By

The Easter Egg

by Jan Brett

This week's line is:

“Cheer-rup! Cheer-rup! Spring is Here!”

To read a Jan Brett book is to become a child again. The Easter Egg came out after my childhood, but I am able to share this amazing author’s work with my daughter now. Jan Brett uses images throughout the story to tell small details or a small little picture story within the story. This book is charming, with bright, unique eggs. But the message is the most beautiful of all, birth and life. Happy Easter!

Now it's Your Turn

Open the book nearest you and post the first line of the first chapter in the comments below, I would love to see into the book you are reading.

    I’m also featuring an Easter-themed read this week: Behold the Man, by Bodie and Brock Thoene.

    Have a blessed Easter!

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Noelle Marchand’s “The Nanny’s Temporary Triplets” : “By the power vested in me by God and the state of Texas” — “Stop this wedding!”

      It is a must read, or anything by Jan Brett truly is!

    I almost feel bad submitting this first line following your first line from a sweet children’s book! But in some ways, it’s appropriate because this story is about a girl who was robbed of her childhood. The contrast emphasizes her loss.

    My first line is from Candice Curry’s autobiography A CON MAN’S DAUGHTER: “I could hear my name being called, but I was stuck somewhere between a dream and reality.”

    But the line that made me keep reading is this one, a thought Candice had as a 13-year-old: “I strained to hear God’s voice in my ear but only heard Satan whisper how much he loved me.”

    My first line comes from GRACE by Max Lucado.

    Some years ago I underwent a heart procedure.

    Happy Resurrection Weekend!

    I love that you shared from a children’s book. I’ve shared from all the real books around me, my Kindle is charging in the other room so I can’t get to the book I’m currently reading.
    Happy Easter Weekend!

    This sounds like a cute book. 🙂 Happy Good Friday!
    I shared the first line from “A Hope Unseen” over on my blog, but I thought I’d share with you the first line from what I’m reading right now: “Lia Promise stared at the man across the table from her.” It’s from “An Informal Affair” by Heather Gray and is one of the stories in the Love At First Laugh collection which I have been reading my way through between novels this month.

    The line I’m going to share with you here is different than the one featured on my blog post. This book is one that my 9 year old son is currently reading for the second time.
