First Line Friday (Week 61): Dead Drift

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
Today's book is: Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey

Dead Drift
First Line:
"Luke extricated himself from the vehicle to find shattered convoy debris littering the ground."

I have been looking forward to this book ever since finished book 3 of the series last fall. After what felt like a long wait it offically released last week and after starting it yesterday evening I am alreay half way through.  My co-blogger C got a chance to read an early copy and shared her thoughts a couple weeks ago. Her review can be found here.
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. My first line comes from The Counterfeit Heiress by Tasha Alexander

    I raised the long, curved bow and with two fingers pulled back its string, all the while resisting the urge to remove one of the silver-shafted arrows nestled in the quiver slung over my shoulder.

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing the first line from Melanie Dickerson's novel, The Orphan's Wish. I just started it and I'm loving it so much!

    Here, I will share the first line from chapter 8 (that's where I'm at currently).

    "Aladdin followed Herr Kaufmann around for the first week."

    Hope you have a great weekend full of fun reading!!! ❤📚

  3. Happy Friday! The book I'm featuring on my blog is "My Sister's Intended" by Rachael Anderson. It's been on my TBR list for quite some time now, but I finally read it and am so glad I did. Truly an enjoyable read. I will share the first line from Chapter Eleven here. ""Would you care to go for a stroll with me in the gardens, Miss Gifford?" Brand asked, not sure whether or not he wanted her to accept."

  4. Happy Friday!

    Can't wait to read this book!

    I’m reading The Dear Reader by Mary O'Connell right now, so here’s the first line: “Miss Sweeney disappeared on the first day of March, an icy Thursday morning of gloves and boots and veneers of diamondy frost on the windows of Sacred Heart High School.”

  5. Today, I'm sharing the first line from a book recommended by my daughter: Matched by Ally Condie. "Now that I’ve found the way to fly, which direction should I go into the night?" I don't think I'm going to read that one, but she sure liked it :) Happy reading!

  6. Happy Friday! My first line is from La Risposta: The Answer (A Tuscan Legacy book 9) by Autumn Macarthur:

    Prologue: “Instead of returning to her vegetable garden, Teresa Pellegrini rushed into the farmhouse.”

  7. I read the book a few weeks ago. Hope you enjoy!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Her Place in Time by Stephenia H McGee but my next book is going to be The Baker's secret by Stephen P Kiernan so I'll share that first line here: "All through those years of war, the bread tasted of humiliation." Hope you have happy weekend with plenty of reading! :)

  8. I'm sharing from a book that will be out early next month (I won an uncorrected proof on GoodReads) on my blog today, The Daisy Children by Sofia Grant, so here is the second line:

    "It wasn't the fault of the trousers, of course, but it was tempting to blame them nonetheless."

    Happy Reading!

  9. I just got this in the mail woohoo!! Can't wait to start reading :) Thanks for getting me started with the first line!

  10. Thanks so amazingly much for choosing and sharing Dead Drift's opening line! Appreciate you.
