Woop woop I am back with another First Line Friday and this time I will be sharing with you the first line of one of my all-time favourite childhood books.
It’s The BFG by Roald Dahl!
“Sophie couldn’t sleep. A brilliant moonbeam was slanting through a gap in the curtains. It was shining right on her pillow”
I could recite this book pretty much word for word but will that stop me reading it? NO, the pages are literally falling out but it’s part of the collection I have of Roald Dahl books so I can’t replace it 😦

Hello pals! I’m back again with another First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! This time I’m going to take a leaf from my childhood and I’ll be sharing the first line from Matilda!
“It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful”
This is literally one of my all-time favourite childhood books and I love to re-read it!

Aloha and welcome back to another First Line Friday! Hosted by Hoarding Books! Today I’m posting a line from Thinner by Stephen King.
“‘Thinner’, the old gypsy man with the rotting nose whispers to William Halleck as Halleck and his wife, Heidi, come out of the courthouse”.
I actually reviewed this not long ago, as I’ve just finished reading it! It was so good and as soon as I read the first line I was hooked. Check out my review here!

Guess who’s back, back again with ANOTHER First Line Friday post – as always hosted by Hoarding books – check out their blog when you’ve finished reading my post❤️
Today we’re reading the first line from The girl who loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.
“The world has its teeth and it could bite you with them anytime it wanted. Trisha McFarland discovered this when she was nine years old”
Reading that has gotten me so excited to read this book! I might have to bump it up my TBR list…

Hello and welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! Today I’m posting a line from Rose Madder by Stephen King.
“She sits in the corner, trying to draw air out of a room which seemed to have plenty just a few minutes ago and now seems to have none”
I have to say this has gotten my interest but there are other books I’d like to read before this one. Keep an eye on my page for my review, I’ll be linking back to this post so you can see what I said about the first line!

I’m baaaaack! With another First Line Friday for you all❤️ Hosted by Hoarding Books.
Our first line today comes from Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a book which I will admit I watched the film of first.
“When I think of my wife I always think of her head. The shape of it to begin with.”
An intriguing first line, you have to admit… Unfortunately, the surprise of the book was taken away by the fact I’d watched the film but I still really enjoyed this book.

Hello my wonderful followers! I’m back with another First Line Friday post to share with you all, hosted by the lovely blog Hoarding Books.
Today we’re reading the first line from The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
“Renowned curator Jacques Sauniere staggered through the vaulted archway of the museum’s Grand Gallery”
I love The Da Vinci Code, it actually featured on one of my recent Top Ten Tuesday posts about books that I will never let anyone touch!

Aloha my lovely followers! Today on First Line Friday (hosted by Hoarding Books) we’re going to be sharing the first line from Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King!
“What did you ask, Andy Bissette?”
I’m yet to read this book and just going off the description I can tell I’m going to really enjoy it!
Have you read Dolores Claiborne? Or are you just taking part in First Line Friday? Let me know in the comments!
It’s Friday, Friday gotta get down on Friday… And by getting down I mean getting down to another First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books📚
Today we’re opening IT by Stephen King and we’re going to be reading the first line (I’ve struggled to read IT before, I’m going to try it for the third time then give it up as a bad job, which is a shame as the first line really gets you engrossed!)
“The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years – if it ever did end – began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.”
