First Lines 2017


Happy 2018! It is 10 degrees outside today. So there’s that. I will be spending the day in my pajamas warm at home enjoying my day off, alternating reading The Duchess Deal by the fabulous Tessa Dare and watching episodes of the new season of Black Mirror on Netflix. I chose the Dare book as my first read of 2018 because I know it will be good.


Onto The First Lines Meme, which I first heard of through my blog friend Suko and is hosted over @ The Indextrious Reader :

As usual at this time of year, I review and share my reading/blogging year with First Lines.

Simply put, we share the first line of the first post of each month and see what that overview tells us about our year. Often it can be an uncannily accurate summary.

Here are my First Lines of 2017:

Among the Lost (In Dante’s Wake) is book 2 in Seth Steinzor’s trilogy based on Dante’s Inferno.

Happy Saturday everyone, Spring is in the air here with unseasonably warm weather this past week.

Things We Lost in the Fire is a quiet, intense and at times disturbing collection of 12 short stories.

This weeks topic was harder than I thought it would be.

Good morning everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all doing well.

I finished reading Crescendo last week and I am still thinking about it.

Hello blog friends, I have been MIA and missed you all these few weeks but I did manage to read I Am Legend and wanted to share my thoughts on it.

Hello everyone, please join me in welcoming Linda Broday author of Knight on the Texas Plains as she stops by today while on virtual tour to discuss her writing space.

Happy Sunday everyone, September is here and I am ready for Autumn.

Good morning blogland, can you believe the first week in October is already over?

I randomly decided to re-read The Dead Zone not too long ago.

Hello everyone, December is here!


It was fun taking this little trip down blogging memory lane. What were your fist lines of 2017? What is your first read for the new year?
