    I have that book on my TBR list. On my blog this week I am featuring “Saving Truth” by Abdu Murray, Finding Meaning & Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Since I am still currently reading this book, I will share the first two lines from Chapter 4. “History’s most influential person expressly binds freedom to the limits of truth. “You will know the truth,” Jesus says, “and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)” May your weekend be a refreshing one for you.

    My first line is from Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.

    Ten-year-old Faith Lytton placed her hands on her hips —like Mama did when she was exasperated— and looked at the sad little group of puny troops allotted to her.

    Carolyn is one of my top favorite authors. You will love this book!

    I’m looking forward to binge reading this series! 🙂

    My first line comes from The Trial by Robert Whitlow.

    PROLOGUE
    Truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long.
    THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, ACT 2, SCENE 2

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Love is Patient by Lila Diller:

    “I flipped through the pages of the bridal magazine yet again, from one dogeared page to the next, dreaming and desiring.”

    Happy Friday!

    I shared the first line of Veronica Roth’s Carve the Mark on my blog today. Here, though, I’ll share the book I’ve just started to read – A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.

    “Once upon a time, a little girl helplessly watched as liquid gold spun a web across her tiny frame, racing to wrap her up in an icy cocoon.”

    I hope you enjoyed that. Happy weekend and happy reading! 😊

    I cut the headlights and turned onto Lunada Bay Road. Fog crept around the hilly street, clasping hands with darkness. I could barely see more than a few feet ahead.

    Happy Friday!😎

    My first line comes from a book I will be reading soon, Oh My Stars by Sally Kilpatrick.

    And it came to pass in those days, that a decree went out from my mother that I would be playing the Virgin Mary in the Dollar General drive-through Nativity whether I liked it or not.

    Haha! I love those first lines and can’t wait to read this book!

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚

      Thank you for sharing. Oddly enough, I have never read Catch-22. It is a novel used at the 10th grade level at my school. I teach 9th and 12th, so I’ve never had a reason to read it. I should change that. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Happy Friday!
    I’ve seen a lot of people talking about this book recently!
    The book I shared on my blog this week is Auschwitz Lullaby but it’s also what I just finished reading so I’ll share my favorite quote from the book here: “Sometimes we have to lose everything to find what is most important. When life robs us of what we thought we could not live without and leaves us standing naked before reality, the essential things that had always been invisible take on their true value.” Hope you have a great weekend!
