First Lines Friday

First Line Friday is a weekly feature that I now love to take part in.

It is hosted by Wandering Words.

What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or by its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?

Here is how it works:

– Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page.

– Copy the first few lines without giving the book away.

– Reveal the book

Here we go!


Main Entry: spin•ster

Pronunciation: ‘spin(t)-stər

Function: noun 1: an unmarried woman of gentle family

2: an unmarried woman and especially one past the common age for marrying

3: a woman who seems unlikely to marry

It certainly shouldn’t come as a shock. I’ve always thought of myself as a recluse, a loner of sorts. Now I have a new title: spinster. I think I need some ice cream or an entire chocolate cake … or both.


Scroll down to reveal the book!

Thirty-two Going on Spinster by Becky Monsoon

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read! It is the first in a trilogy and I couldn’t put it down. I think it’s about time for a reread!!

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
