Molly | First Line Friday + The Friday 56

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

Happy Friday!

Coming up soon on my TBR is the soon-to-be-released story from Sarah Monzon. It looks like a lot of fun, so I can't wait to get started.

First Line: Just call me George Washington.

From 56%: "White-washing history is a big problem, and I think we short-change children when we not only ignore the injustices of the past but glorify some of them as well."


If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I absolutely refuse to tell a lie no matter the consequences. So don’t ask me a direct question unless you’re prepared for a direct answer—that’s something my SoCal sewing girlfriends have learned the hard way.

But who would have thought my honesty policy would get me fired from my job at the preschool? Or that a desperate—and not to mention devastatingly handsome—single father of one of my (now-former) students would hire me that same day as a nanny for his daughter?

I’m an education professional. How hard can taking care of a four-year-old and her over-stressed, over-worked father be?

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. Hello! 🙂
    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from If I Were You by Lynn Austin. I'm currently on chapter 11, so I'll share from there.
    "USA 1950
    Eve barely slept."
    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  2. I’m sharing the first line from Stay With Me by Becky Wade on my blog today. “Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a house he owned.” Happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Doesn't She Look Natural?" by Angela Hunt:

    "A grieving woman, I've decided, is like a creme brulee: she begins in a liquid state, endures a period of searing heat, and eventually develops a scablike crust."

  4. This has peaked my interest!! Have a good weekend!

  5. On my blog I shared the first line from Forever Home by Amy Grochowski
    "A sensible Amish woman aspired to marry, as Lydia Miller was reminded daily."


    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. That cover is really eye catching! Thanks for sharing. :)
