First Line Friday–All Things Bright and Strange

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books.


If I tell you that I declared James Markert’s previous novel, The Angels’ Share, to be one of my favorite reads of 2017 then you won’t be too surprised that I am extremely excited to read his newly released post-World War I novel All Things Bright and Strange.  Here is chapter one’s first line:  


 “1920  Bell Haven, South Carolina

          It was as good a day to die as any.



Isn’t that intriguing?  Now, it’s your turn…

Join me in opening your current read or the book nearest to you and sharing the first line in the comments, then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating.

Happy Friday!

  1. I’ve seen this book on NetGalley but had no idea what it was about. It sounds interesting – thanks for sharing.

    I’ve got the first line from The Saturday Night Supper club up on my blog, and I’m currently reading another great contemporary romance – Paper Hearts by Courtney Walsh. She’s one of my new favourite authors. Here’s the first line:

    “I can’t believe she did this to me again.” Abigail Pressman stared at the computer screen in disbelief.
