First Line Friday

Hello bookworms, and happy Friday! This is my second First Line Friday post. This is a weekly tag hosted by Hoarding Books

All we have to do is pick any book, it can either be our current read, or a book on our TBR, or just something random, and open it to the first page, and share a snippet from there.

As I had mentioned in my previous First Line Friday post, I will be sharing the first line, and then I will be revealing the name of the book.

In a field full of wild flowers, a boy and a girl stood side by side beneath and ancient oak tree. The sky was angry, the thunder growling like an angry beast.

The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle

When Fionn Boyle sets foot on Arranmore Island, it begins to stir beneath his feet…

Once in a generation, Arranmore Island chooses a new Storm Keeper to wield its power and keep its magic safe from enemies. The time has come for Fionn’s grandfather, a secretive and eccentric old man, to step down. Soon, a new Keeper will rise.

But, deep underground, someone has been waiting for Fionn. As the battle to become the island’s next champion rages, a more sinister magic is waking up, intent on rekindling an ancient war.

This book is on my current TBR, and it is also most probably going to be my next read. The synopsis looks intriguing, and I can’t wait to get into it!

What is your first line?
Open the book nearest you and post the first line in the comments below…or you can also create a post on it!

  1. Happy Friday!
    Over on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Thawing the Viscount’s Heart by Mindy Strunk: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/12/11/first-line-friday-165/. It’s a really sweet read. Currently I’m reading Night Vision by Susan Sleeman, so I’ll share a line from there.

    Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! 🙂❤📚
