First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along. 

  • Grab your current read(s).
  • Share the first line(s).
  • Include the title and author so that other FLF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.

Jenny Lopez Has a Bad Week

"'Jenny Lopez, you are a delight.' It had been a really bad week. I was broke; I was bored and boyfriendless. At least I had been, until now."

Skipping a Beat: A Novel

"When my husband, Michael, died for the first time, I was walking across a freshly waxed marble floor in three-inch Stuart Weitzman heels, balancing a tray of cupcakes in my shaking hands."

Skipping a Beat: A Novel by Sarah Pekkanen


  1. Hello, TGIF i suppose: I'm getting my first line ready and friday follow hop. how's the chic lit reading going? skipping a beat: when her husband died for the first time, did he did another time too? ooooooohh!

  2. TGIF, Sidne. The chick lit reading is going great. I've read quite a few and still have about one week to go.

    As for Skipping a Beat, you'll have to read the book to find out if the husband died another time too. It is great!
