First Lines Fridays & The Friday 56 ~ 7/5/19

Ali here ~

Happy Friday!! I hope you all have had a great week! My week has been pretty good. It was pretty chill all week. I’ve been working with my younger two on their math some. I took one morning to watch the live action Beauty and the Beast with my daughter. We’re thinking about rewatching it in Spanish and French later. Last night I went to Alabama’s 50th anniversary concert with my mom. Tonight my kids and I are going to Game Night at our church. It’s pretty much for board game geeks, which my oldest very much is!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
Finally… reveal the book!

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice and asks you to turn to page 56 (or 56% in your e reader) of your book (any book) and share a sentence or two that doesn’t have spoilers.

First line:

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.


The church became so still that the drops of wax could be heard falling from the candles.

I am at 84% in my kindle copy now. I feel like I’m finally in the home stretch of this very long book. It is quite an interesting read. It has been the perfect book to read with my group of friends and discuss.
Happy Reading,
