First Line Fridays - 9/16/16 - A Lady Unrivaled


Welcome to another Friday! I am so ready for this weekend! Never let me schedule 4 appointments in 4 days for my son again...That was a mistake. I also had to bring my 4 year old along, but he behaved so well. SO proud of them both. But now...All I want to do today is hide away in my nook and read! My first line is from A Lady Unrivaled. The last book in Roseanna M. White's Ladies of the Manor series. I am about halfway through and devouring every word. So without further ado...



"Lady Ella Myerston knew more than everyone thought she did--and more than they thought she should."

What is YOUR first line? Comment below and then head over to join in more First Line fun!

  6. I'm spending my evening with Kid Artists: True Tales of Childhood from Creative Legends by David Stabler, illustrated by Doogie Horner. From the introduction:

    "Not every kid grows up to be a great artist. But every great artist definitely starts out as a kid."
