Star Wars: Are You Scared Darth Vader?

Instead of typing out the first lines, I’m going to show you the first set of pages:

OK, OK, so I can totally hear your confusion! You’re wondering why I would share this goofy kid’s picture book as my #FirstLineFridays book. Well, nothing screams family more to me than reading with my daughter before bed. And, since this is one of her most favorite books to read, I thought I would share the first lines.

Regardless if you are a fan of Star Wars or not, this is a hilarious picture book. It’s quite interactive, and Bella and I have loads of fun reading it together. If you have young children at home, I highly recommend adding this book to your collection.


NOW IT IS YOUR TURN! GRAB THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING, OPEN TO CHAPTER ONE, AND POST THE FIRST SENTENCE (OR SECOND SENTENCE) IN THE COMMENTS BELOW. THEN HEAD ON OVER TO HOARDING BOOKS TO SEE ALL OF THE FLF PAGES THIS WEEK (JUST CLICK ON THE FLF BUTTON BELOW).

    There is no escaping the dead. On the slender peninsula that is Charleston, we cannot help being surrounded by them, packed as they are into ancient cemeteries behind ornate iron fencing. Beneath our streets. And under our homes and parking garages.

    Wow! I’m gonna check out the Darth Vader book for my grandkids!

    Here’s my first line from The Making of Mrs. Hale by Carolyn Miller:

    Julia Hale lifted a weary hand and rapped on the yellow painted door. Please let me in. please!

    Happy Friday!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse but I’m currently reading the Amish Midwife’s secret by Rachel J Good so I’ll share the line from my current chapter (10) here: “By the time Leah arrived at the Groffs’, Sharon had already completed the checkup.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!

    Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! My first line (and 3rd line because I love this line) is from “Reaching Her Heart” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Tristan Callaghan moved to the side of the long hallway to let a young couple pass, giving them a smile and a nod before continuing on… What on earth had possessed him to agree to teach Sunday School to seven and eight-year-old boys?”

    Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from Hearts In Harmony by Beth Wiseman……

    I had never been to an Englisch funeral before today. I’ve only been to one funeral , when Uncle John died last year. But I’m only ten so maybe that’s why. This funeral was different from Uncle John’s. There were a lot of flowers inside the church and people singing.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊💕

    We still have a couple of fun picture books featuring Star Wars characters. I’d definitely buy this if my kids were the right age!

    I’m sharing the first line from Ashmore by Angela Curtis on my blog today. It’s her debut novel, and it’s based on the real-life journey her ancestors took when emigrating from England to New Zealand. It makes me thankful for our modern world where we have cleaner and faster methods of transport!

    “One half-witted decision changed Lillie Curtis’ life forever. Unfortunately, that decision had not been her own.”

    Have a great weekend 🙂
