Friday Memes 3/21

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
What is your favorite weekly meme?

My Answer:
Top Ten Tuesday. I love all the fun topics!


Hosted by: Rose City Reader

"Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

"If this is what a London season is, I'd say it's a silly waste of time." Jessamine Barry folded her arms in front of her, frowning at the hordes of people milling past her in the Grecian-style drawing room, their edges slightly blurred since she was forbidden to wear her spectacles in society.
A Heart's Rebellion by Ruth Axtell

My Thoughts
This was a well done beginning, slightly humorous and really informative!

You definitely learn a lot about Jessamine from this beginning, love her name btw. I wonder why she's not allowed to wear her glasses though! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great weekend!

Sounds like "boys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses!" Love the beginning. I would definitely keep reading to find out more about this young woman.
My Friday excerpts are from a short story this week: INTERCEPTION.
