First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? If you want to make your own post, follow the rules below:
Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
Finally… reveal the book!

This year, I’m hoping to share more about what I am reading. To try to achieve that, I have decided to participate in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? that is hosted by The Book Date. In the past this wouldn’t have been something I would have considered doing as I typically read many books in a week, but as I am back in school and taking several courses, the amount of time that I have to read books has lessened.
This week, I plan to hopefully read quite a bit as the next semester of my classes does not begin until January 9th.
Another year has come and gone and once again, I ended up taking most of December off. The end of November was a rough one for my family as we had a death in the family and we started December off with a funeral. The break this past month was definitely needed as we processed emotions and took time to heal.
I also chose to go back to school this back semester to pursue a Paraprofessional Education degree. After many years of being out of school, I think I have finally figured out what I would like to do. This was exciting for me as I have spent the last nine years as a stay at home mom.
As 2023 begins, I look forward to being more active on my blog like I was in the first half of 2022! I’m so excited for this new chapter and thankful for all of those who choose to join me!
