First Line Fridays: Spark of Light, Jodi Picoult

Happy Friday Friends! Whew!

Hope your week was excellent and you found time to read.

We’ve had awful fires 🔥 near us and the kids go back to school 🎒 soon and it’s been hot and muggy. Looking forward to a cooler fall! 🍁

Here’s the opening lines to Jodi Picoult’s new book SPARK OF LIGHT. I’m only a few pages in and plan on reading all night! Releases October 2, 2018.

“THE CENTER SQUATTED ON THE CORNER OF JUNIPER AND MONTFORT behind a wrought-iron gate, like an old bulldog used to guarding its territory. At one point, there had been many like it in Mississippi—nondescript, unassuming buildings where services were provided and needs were met.”

What’s everyone up to this weekend? How are you doing with #ARCAugust?

We joined a fun Reading Challenge for the weekend called 25 in Five. It’s basically reading books for 25 hours over the course of 5 days. Check it out here.

First Line Friday’s is hosted by Hoarding Books! Click over and say hi 👋🏻 to Carrie. Such a fun way to start the weekend!


  1. Happy Friday!😎

    My first lines come from Carolina Mercy by Regina Rudd Merrick…..

    Lucy Dixon wanted it to be a bad dream, but it wasn’t. Auto pilot. It was the only way she was getting through this. Daddy was dead.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖
