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
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!!
