First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. 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.

" grasping my pen and putting my hand to page, I felt as though I existed for the first time. I was the property of no one save myself. Therefore, I could freely give of myself to those I loved, no?"

~ The American Daughters by Maurice Carlos Ruffin 

"The egg I had for breakfast this morning didn't taste rotten, but these days, it was not always easy to know about the state of the food one ate because of the many ways merchants could mask spoiled food."
