First Line Fridays (Week 77): Catching Christmas

Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.

Today's book is:  Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock
Catching Christmas
First Line:
"I'm not a violent person, but I have a dozen reason for pulling my cab over and throwing the chattering man in my back seat onto the curb."

I was excited to get this book but felt like I couldn't begin reading Christmas books in October so I planned to wait until November to start it. However after finishing a book I didn't really enjoy last weekend and my bff having just started this one, I broke down and read it last weekend. I am so glad I did as Terri Blackstock did not disappoint and I really enjoyed it. I recommend picking this one up this coming season.
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. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from An Hour Unspent by Roseanna White. Currently, I'm reading The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear. This book is SO good, I'm absolutely loving it. I'm on chapter 28, so I'll share a line from there:

    "The women came for her very shortly after, and while leading her off, they shooed Crying Bird away."

    Hope you have an amazing weekend filled with great reading time! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“š

  2. Happy Friday! I'm sharing from my current read, Temptation Rag by Elizabeth Hutchison Bernard. Here is a line from the top of page 9:

    "She thought she would never tire of watching him at the piano, his fingers caressing the keys, a look of such tenderness on his face as if he would gladly die for each and every note."

  3. I'm not going to judge you for reading Christmas stories in October ... I've just reviewed a lovely Christian novella collection, Christmas Heirloom.

    I'm featuring Pathway to Peace by Elizabeth Maddrey on my blog, and I've just picked up That's When I Knew by Laurie Tomlinson. Here's the first line:

    "Bless her heart. Chelsea Scott's sales director had no idea what she was getting them into."

    I'm guessing this is that Southern meaning of "bless her heart" which means anything but!

  4. My book club is reading this one in December. Looking forward to it.
