First Line Friday {9}

First Line Friday {9}

Friday is upon us once again, and today I am just in a great mood! We have had some lovely spring weather and I got to spend a good amount of time outdoors, and that had really lifted my mood recently (even though it is supposed to get cold again).

Today I’m coming at ya with another First Line. 

Don’t forget, if you ever want to join in, you just have to follow the rules below:

Want to join in?

  • 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!

This week’s First Line is hosted by Hoarding Books, click the picture below and check out all of the other First Line Friday posts!!

And now it’s time for the first line:

“The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit.” 


This first line comes from…

Uglies (Uglies #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads:

Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait. In just a few weeks she’ll have the operation that will turn her from a repellent ugly into a stunning pretty. And as a pretty, she’ll be catapulted into a high-tech paradise where her only job is to have fun.

But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to become a pretty. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world– and it isn’t very pretty. The authorities offer Tally a choice: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. Tally’s choice will change her world forever…

Other info about the book: 

Paperback, 406 pages

Published February 8th, 2005 by Simon Pulse

This is a pretty old book in terms of book years, but I recently re-read this series and was reminded how much I enjoyed it the first time around.

Thanks for stopping by and reading! What is the first line of the book that you are currently reading? Let me know in the comments below!

  • Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh by Carolyn Miller: I am really enjoying the story! I am currently in the middle of chapter 19, so I will leave a line from that chapter.

    “Gideon waited in the drawing room, not daring to sit down, not daring to pace as he’d like to, in case the stoic footman at the door see him and make a fuss. What was taking her so long?”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂💜📚

  • Sounds like an interesting dystopian!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Fated by Teri Terry but I’m currently reading Dead Letter by Chautona Havig. I just started so I’ll share the first line from chapter 2 where I currently am: “Hard benches, spartan furnishings, packed conditions—though she’d purchased a second-class ticket as instructed, Madeline couldn’t help but feel like she’d gotten little better than emigrant car accommodations.” Hope you have a great weekend! Spring is in the air! 🙂

  • Happy Friday and weekend! My first line is from “KNOX: The Montana Marshalls” by Susan May Warren

    “Oh goody, now Knox go to watch his trouble-making little brother break his ornery neck.”

  • Happy Friday! Over on my blog I’m sharing from the first book in Robin Patchen’s Beauty in Flight trilogy. This is the first line from the second book, Beauty in Hiding:

    “Of course it was raining.”

  • Interesting premise. And that first line sure grabs your attention!

    I’ve shared the first line from Crystal Walton’s “Romancing the Conflicted Cowboy” on my blog, but since I’m reading Carolyn Miller’s “A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh” right now, I’ll share the first line of the scene I’m up to (in chapter 5):

    Gideon looked up from the specimen and almost dropped it.

    Have a great weekend 🙂
