First Line Friday: August 28, 2020

first-lines-friday

Happy Friday y’all! This week has been so freaking busy! So many books have come out and I’ve had so many reviews to publish (with my blog tour date for Where Dreams Descend having been on the 26th and me needing to publish my reviews for Tempting the Prince and Beyond Power this week to stay on top of my posting schedule) it’s been a little crazy. Plus, I went back to my workout classes this week- my gym’s doing small, outdoor workout classes on their patio and I went to a strength training class on Tuesday morning and a cycling class on Thursday morning and they were so much fun! They were my first real workout classes after breaking my foot in late May, so I was a little worried about them, but they were way better than I was expecting!

  • 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!

First Line Friday: August 21

Happy Friday y’all! Has this week felt incredibly long to anyone else, or is that just me? It feels like it’s been at least 2 weeks in one for sure! I’ve been trying to stay on top of my reading and reviewing, and overall, I feel like I’m doing alright in terms of the schedule I’ve set for myself, but man, things keep getting added to that schedule (and that’s 100% my fault because I keep signing up for more book tours and I keep requesting more books on Netgalley and I keep saying yes to publishers haha). Anyway, on to First Line Friday!

Happy Friday y’all! Man, what a week! For some reason, this week has felt so long! And I don’t even have a real, like fun update for y’all because even though it’s felt really long, I can’t, for the life of me, remember anything that’s really happened this week! What the heck.

Happy Friday y’all! Today’s first line is a little later than normal because I went and made/ate sushi with my brother and sister in law today, so I had no time to write this one this morning! I should probably get better about writing my First Line Friday posts in advance, but I’m so bad at preparing these. Let’s see, what all updates do I have from last week… not much really… I went on a second date with the boy, but we haven’t talked much since then because he started a new rotation at work. I read a bunch of books. OH and this isn’t an update about last week but it is an update! I’m going to be posting a special post on Sunday, so make sure you keep an eye out for it- it’s going to be

First Line Friday: July 31, 2020

Happy Friday y’all! Can you believe that we’re already at the end of July?! What the heck!!! Let’s see, what all has been going on with me since my last First Line Friday- I went on a socially distant date with a new guy from a dating app last weekend and that went well! I don’t know if it’s going to go anywhere with him (we haven’t even planned a second date yet), but it’s nice to know that after being ghosted by the last two guys I was really interested in, people are still into me. Besides that, I’ve finished 4 books this week and all of them were really good! That’s it for my weekly update!

It’s Friday again! Woop woop! I hope everyone’s been having a pretty good week- mine has been pretty decent… nothing too special, but I have been jamming out to Taylor Swift’s new album today and I made my friend Grace an amazing Spotify playlist earlier this week, so that was fun (if y’all are interested in knowing what’s on Grace’s playlist or on the birthday playlist I made Bee last week, drop me a comment and maybe I’ll make a post about them next week!)

First Line Fridays: July 17, 2020

Happy Friday y’all! Today’s First Line Friday is dedicated to my best friend, Bee, because Sunday is her birthday! Woop woop! She’s one of the main reasons I’m book blogging/bookstagramming/reading as much as I am these days- if we hadn’t talked about our mutual love of YA fantasy in 2015 when we became friends, I don’t think I would have picked any of these things back up again.

Happy Friday y’all! This has been a busy week for me- lots going on, so I didn’t have time to prep this First Line Friday in advance, but I knew exactly which book I wanted to feature, so that’s a plus!

I’m sure y’all have noticed that I’m posting more these days… now that I have more time on my hands, I’m trying to get better about doing more things that I want to do, and book blogging is pretty high on that list! So, I’m going to try and post pretty much every day! We’ll see how that ends up going… today’s post is going to be my first ever First Line Friday! I’ve seen this on some other people’s pages and I’ve always wanted to do it, but now I’m finally diving in!
