First Line Friday: Mighty Women Edition

grab button for Hoarding Books

Welcome to another edition of #FLF, hosted by Hoarding Books.

I am super excited to share a book this week that my daughter got yesterday at our extended family Christmas. We've read it so many times already and I love love love it. Props also for Claudette Colvin being included for not giving up her bus seat, a few months before Rosa Parks.

"Sometimes being a girl isn't easy. At some point, someone will probably tell you no, will tell you to be quiet and may even tell you that your dreams are impossible. Don't listen to them. These thirteen American women certainly didn't take no for an answer.

They persisted."

Let me know what you think and/or leave a line of your own to share this week.

Happy Reading!
Sarah

    My first line is from Would-be Mistletoe Wife by Christine Johnson.

    “Louise Smythe spotted her quarry and motioned her students to follow her across the sand dune.”

    This is a fun & interesting read about lighthouses and the Chicago Fire! Happy New Year!!!

    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Happy New Year!

  4. Sounds like a great book to share with my granddaughter one day...if I ever have a granddaughter. :) Thanks for sharing it. The book I'm featuring this week is A Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Witemeyer, who I always enjoy. This is part of an enjoyable Archer Brothers series. Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New Year to you as well, thank you for stopping by!

      it is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it - good for girls and boys! We are also fond of the 'Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls' (two books so far). The title itself kind of bugs me because we should not view these women as rebels if we want to normalize their successes. BUT, it is still filled with amazing stories of brave women and girls from all over the world, accomplishing great things.

    I'm sharing the first line from Nicole Deese's novel, A Season to Love, on my blog. I'm just starting chapter 23, so I will share the first line from this chapter here:

    "I dreamed of coffee: dark and rich and boldly brewed."

    A great dream to me!!! Hope you have a great weekend, and a happy New Year. 😊
