First Line Fridays: “Outrun the Wind” by Elizabeth Tammi

First Line Fridays (feature photo)

First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.

Happy Friday everyone! We made it another week!

I just finished Gina Apostol’s Insurrecto yesterday, and while I’m still working on my review for that one, let me share with you the first couple of lines of my next read.




“The trees tremble, and it is not from the wind.

I clench my fist so my fingers don’t follow the trees’ example, and reach behind my back, pulling out an arrow and nocking it in a motion so practiced that I don’t need to take my eyes off the treeline. Sunlight glimmers like a jewel through the shifting leaves.”


Outrun the Wind sounds really interesting, being inspired by the goddess of the hunt, Artemis. I’m going to be starting on it today and I’m pretty excited to see how the story goes.

Outrun the Wind releases on November 27.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “This Courageous Journey” by Misty M. Beller:

    “Today, we left the train – forever, if my aching limbs could decide the matter.”

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Gone Too Soon my Melody Carlson. So far, I am enjoying the book. I’m just starting chapter 4 in Gone Too Soon, so I will share it’s first line here.

    “I don’t think anyone observed me sneak out the backdoor.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend! 📚💜

    Happy Friday!

    Today, my first lines come from A Vineyard Christmas by Jean Stone…

    The turnout was better than Annie had expected. It was, after all, a bitter, see-your-breath kind of morning, with a brisk December wind whirling around Vineyard Sound.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm!😊💕

    Happy Friday! On my blog this week I shared the first line of Searching for You by Jody Hedlund but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: ” Sophie stretched and yawned, relishing the scent of bacon and coffee and something sweet.” I’m good for the bacon but I have to admit I don’t like coffee OR the smell of it (yes, I know I’m the odd-ball lol). Hope you have a great weekend!

    That sounds like a book I might want to read. On my blog I’m featuring A Tale of Two Hearts: Book 2 in Once Upon a Time Dickens Christmas by Michelle Griep. I’m currently reading A Holiday by Gaslight by Mimi Matthews. Since I’m on Chapter Two, I will share the first line from this chapter. “You told him what?” Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
