I am really excited this week for a couple reasons. First, I am super close to meeting my goal of 250 books this year (Never mind that I am plowing through 'chick lit' and 'cozy mysteries' to reach it). Secondly, because I am super close to reaching my goal, I am able to get back to books I actually care about and WANT to read.
So, I am very happy that this week's First Line comes from Sarah Bryson's book about Charles Brandon, Henry VIII's BFF.
"Charles Brandon was an enigmatic, charismatic man, rising from mere boyhood friend of a future king to flirting with a European duchess, marrying the Dowager Queen of France, being created the Duke of Suffolk, and not to mention becoming the leading magnate in Lincolnshire by the end of his life."
