First Line Friday #1

First line friday

So, I’m adapting this a little from Katie’s Book Blog. She normally posts the first lines from books in her TBR pile and has readers vote on a book according to the choices. What I’m going to be doing instead is post the first lines of books in my upcoming reading lineup as a sort of preview. I know you’re on the edge of your seats. We’ll see how this goes.

Book of a Thousand Days “My lady and I are being shut up in a tower for seven years.” (Book of a Thousand Days)







The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake“It happened for the first time on a Tuesday afternoon, a warm spring day in the flatlands near Hollywood, a light breeze moving east from the ocean and stirring the black-eyed pansy petals newly planted in our flower boxes.” (The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake)





The first is for fun and the second is from my new book club, which I’m really excited about. One of my really good (actually, great) friends is in charge of it. It’ll be grand.

There you have it, my new books for the week. ๐Ÿ˜€
