First Line Fridays – 16 March 2018

16 Mar

Happy Day Before St Patrick’s Day! One of the best days of the year because its my birthday! I’m happily celebrating the 15th anniversary of my 21st year ๐Ÿ™‚ While my choice of book for First Line Friday’s doesn’t have an Irish theme, or even any green on the cover – I know that I’m as excited as a leprechaun who found his pot of gold to start reading it!

Special Agent John Kaiser stood at the window of the FBI’s “tactical room” in the River Bend Hotel and started at the lights of Natchez twinkling high over the dark tide of the Mississippi.

All i’m saying to myself right now as I jump into book 2 in Greg Iles trilogy is “How the heck have i never read you before?!” And I can safely say, if book 3 in the trilogy hadn’t been nominated for an Audie this year in a category that I was listening to, that I would have picked him up. But since reading friends of mine told me that I needed to read the previous two books in the trilogy in order to understand book 3 and i’m soo glad i did. Even though they are huge reads at 700+ pages (the first book) and 800+ pages (book two) and culminating with 28 hours for book three. Of course, then I can go back and read the early books in the Penn Cage series…so basically, I have lots of good reading ahead of me and I can’t wait!

    Happy 15th anniversary of your 21st year! I think I’m going to borrow that one ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sharing the first line from A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal on my blog today, but I’ll share here from the book I’m currently reading: A Chance at Forever by Melissa Jagears:

    “I wish you luck, George.”
    “It’s Aaron now. Don’t forget.”

    Have a great weekend!
