First Line Friday - Week 26

Happy Friday!!!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books. This week I have decided to feature the book I am currently reading. It is by a new to me author and was one I heard about through a First Line Friday friend, but I can't remember who. I will have a full review coming up within the month.

Today's book is: A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal

A Season to Dance

First line is:
"This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room."

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over
to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!


  1. This sounds like a good book.

    My first line is "Sometimes leading also means following. Sometimes being first means you actually arrive second." Service Tales by Ace Collins

  2. Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Sarah Monzon’s latest book just released this week; “The Esther Paradigm”. I’m just over half-way through the book, and I’m loving the story. But you’ll have to go over there to read the first line for The Esther Paradigm. Here I’ll share with you the first line from an older favorite.

    Bedford, England — May 1659
    “The babe’s crying would rip her heart to shreds if she had to listen to it one more minute.” — The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund

    1. The Esther Paradigm was an amazing story. Enjoy!

  3. I have this on my Kindle waiting for me! It looks like a great read and I love that first line.
    I'm featuring The Princess Bride on my blog, but I'm currently reading Meg Mitchell & the Secret of the Journals by Kimberly McNeil so I'll share that here.

    If I say I go to the White Raven for the food, I'd be lying, and I'm a journalist, which means I don't lie.

    Happy Friday!

    1. Hi Rebecca! I hope you love it! These are exciting times for A Season to Dance. We have a blog tour coming up late this month, and the novel releases in Brazil in time for Christmas. My family lives there :)

  4. Happy Friday! I loved this book!

    His quarry was late. Very late. – An Eye For An Eye by Irene Hannon

  5. Oh, that is so sweet!

    My first line comes from Masquerade by Janette Rallison. This is a re-read for me of this fun book.

    "Opportunity didn’t knock for Slade Jacobson – it rang his cell phone at 10:34 pm while he was putting his daughter to bed for the third time."

  6. I love this first line. :) Happy Friday!

  7. I loved this book! I hope you enjoy it :-)

    I’m featuring the first line from Pepper Basham’s ‘Charming the Troublemaker’ on my blog, but I’m going to leave you with the first line of a book I’ll be reviewing tomorrow, ‘The Bachelor Missions’ by Jes Drew:

    “One bulky figure stands alone in the rain, keeping his head down–his identity obscured by a hat and large raincoat.”

    1. Hi! Thank you :) Great to see you here. By the way, homeschool is going great. I still look at that conversation we had via Facebook forever ago to get ideas ;)

  8. Thank you! How nice to see A Season to Dance here :)

    Here's mine. It's from Katherine Reay's The Austen Escape (comes out on Tuesday and will make you read/watch all your Austen favorites!) - "'How can I help?' The world stilled. It wasn't the first time I wondered how one voice, one presence, could quicken the air and simultaneously stop all motion. Nathan."

  9. I've bought A Season to Dance, but it's still languishing on my to-read pile. Well, on my Kindle.

    I'm sharing from Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter on my blog today, and I'm currently reading the Regency Brides collection. Here's the first line to the second novella in the book, Masquerade Melody by Angela Bell:

    Whoever coined the phrase to "bite one's tongue" was sorely mistaken in believing that silence inflicted mere physical harm.

    1. Great to see you here! I hope you get to it :)

  10. Just got this one in the mail yesterday and will probably read it next week! It's been on my TBR list all summer!

    The first line of the book I’m currently reading is:

    England, December 23, 1813
    Holly Gray’s courage faded with every step she took deeper inside the castle conservatory where, according to Grandfather’s stories, a ghost resided.

    Christmas Secrets by Donna Hatch

    Enjoy your weekend!
