The Friday 56 & First Line Friday | The Arctic Incident

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

I'll be finishing this second book in Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series today, and I am loving rereading the series. It's just so fun and clever and makes me so happyI have to share it. Enjoy!

First Line: By the age of thirteen, our subject, Artemis Fowl, was displaying signs of an intellect greater than any human since Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

From Page 56: "Fairy," he said. "I know you're there. Unshield or I start shooting."

Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he suddenly receives an urgent video-email from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya: his father. As Artemis rushes to the rescue, he is stopped by captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.
And be sure to stop by Hoarding Books and Freda's Voice for a peek into other books.


  1. Oh, this one does sound tempting. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE PERFECT ROOMMATE”

  2. I still need to read the first book! :-) Happy weekend!

  3. Over on my blog, I am featuring Heather B. Moore's novel, Worth the Risk. I am very excited to read that book. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

    Here, I will post from the novel I am currently reading, A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green. It is an AMAZING story that I am enjoying wholeheartedly. I am just starting chapter 29, so I will share the first two lines from this chapter.

    Asylum, Pennsylvania
    July 1795

    Still damp with morning's dew, the cool earth soiled Vivienne's apron as she knelt in her garden, tugging weeds from between iris and yarrow. Geese soared overhead, soft brown chevrons against a sky of robin's-egg blue.

  4. I have a coworker who reads these books with her son. They love them.

    Here’s the first line from my current read.

    Four years to the day after the alien planet arrived above Earth, Sofi’s papa had collapsed on the rickety front porch of their buttermilk-yellow farmhouse. –Reclaiming Shilo Snow by Mary Weber

  5. I enjoyed the excerpt and have the first book on my wish list.

  6. Josie Gallagher gripped the letter from the county manager's office with tight hands. - Her Secret Daughter by Ruth Logan Herne

    Happy Friday and Happy Reading! :)

  7. Happy Friday!

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, August and Everything After by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski…..

    I started wearing my grandmother’s old cat-eye glasses in June, right after my latest crush nearly crushed me.

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!
