First Lines Fridays: March 17, 2023

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  The rules are as follows:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

March 2023 TBR List

With the Trope-ical Readathon going on this month, it was fairly easy for me to construct a March 2023 TBR list. I drew all of my TBR below from the various books I selected for the Trope-ical Readathon. However, there’s no way I’ll be able to read well over a dozen books in a month. So my primary focus will be on some ARCs.

February 2023 TBR List

I can’t remember if I made a December 2022 TBR list. I definitely didn’t for January 2023 and I had a good reading time last month. But I do want to make progress on my physical backlist, so I thought making a February 2023 TBR list would help keep me on track. February has a lot of ARC commitments for me, but I read most of them in January to keep my stress levels low. But I have a couple of March ARCs, too, so I’ll throw any early ones into the mix.
