First Line Friday #22 The Girl Who Could See

Friday, June 2, 2017

It's Friday and June! Two great things! I'm so excited for warmer weather! We had quite the snowy winter and I get excited about any sunshine!

Is this not a great cover?!?!? When I saw it I was drawn to the book.

About the book:

Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear “normal,” she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man isn’t a hallucination after all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.

Right now the book is $.99 on Amazon.


First Line:

Present Time

On Television crime shows, they never tell you how cold it is. They might show the dimly lit room with the hard, uninviting chairs. Or the narrow table separating you from the elderly agent with stone-gray eyes. But a TV camera cannot fully portray what a chilling experience an FBI interrogation truly is. 

Tell me your first line, and your thoughts on mine in the comments, then go visit my blogging friends and see theirs. If you'd like to be apart of our First Line Friday gang send Carrie from Reading is my super-power an email.

Happy Friday! That's a great price, so I bought it and look forward to reading it. My first line is from Finding Love on the Oregon Coast by Angela Ruth Strong, a collection of 4 novella by different authors which will be released July 1st: "Christina gazed out the window at the balcony decorated for her wedding ceremony above the sparkling Columbia River in Portland, Oregon, before turning to face the full-length mirror."

This cover is very different! I've seen it around so much. What a first line!!!

On my blog is a fictional first line. Here is a first line from a book I'm reading for research: “Nearly ten years have passed since the close of the civil war in America, and yet no satisfactory history thereof is accessible to the public; nor should any be attempted until the Government has published, and placed within the reach of students, the abundant materials that are buried in the War Department at Washington.” (Memoirs of William T. Sherman)

I like the cover and the title!

My first line is:
“A private plane sits on a runway in Martha’s Vineyard, forward stairs deployed.” ~ Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.
I can’t wait to start this book. I’ve heard it’s good.

Today on my blog I’m sharing a line from Lori Benton’s book “A Flight of Arrows”.

I thought I’d share something different in the comment, an old favorite of mine.
“From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a foot-path winds through green and shady meadows to the foot of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below.” HEIDI by: Johanna Spyri

Sounds like a good one, Andi! I just finished a memoir (?) FAITH TRANSPLANTED by Ray Jones to prepare for the author Q&A I'm hosting at the book's launch party this evening. (YAY!) Told with humor covered by faith, this is Ray's story from illness to transplant list to recovery. "Some days when I first wake up, for a brief moment, I forget what has occurred."

What an intriguing line! On the blog today I am sharing the first line from Melody Carlson’s ‘Under a Summer Sky’ so I thought I would share the first line from the book I am currently reading:

“The man relaxed in the wooden Adirondack chair in the screened-in porch of his cabin rental and stared out across the glistening waters of Lake Williwaw.” Stormy Lake by L.D. Stauth

I love the summer weather! Happy Friday!

I am gonna have to check this one out! I've got a cozy up on the blog today.
