First Lines Friday, What I'm Reading Next

First Lines Friday | 11/7/19

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?

  • 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!

It’s the 2nd Friday of November but I feel like the month is almost over? At least when I look at my calendar and I see Thanksgiving creeping up! I remember months ago I was reading 2-3 books a week and now I feel like I can do only 1 a week. I finally returned library books that I knew I couldn’t read by the time I had to return them (and yes I even renewed them). I’m going to concentrate on the books I bought and my NetGalley arcs.

But I am so excited for Christmas, I already picked out a tree theme (we never do a tree theme πŸ˜…) but for some reason, Target has all these pretty blush pink ornament palettes. I also found these super cute little animal ballerina ornaments and since my daughter have been doing the mommy/baby ballet class, I thought it would make a pretty tree theme. Yes…I’m so ready!

Anyway, here are some lines of a book I got as a birthday gift from my mother in law!

“For more than two hundred years, the Owens women have been blamed for everything that has gone wrong in town.”

Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies, especially at Halloween time, but really any time of year. I love the sister bond between Gillian and Sally, the curse, the aunts, just the whole movie was fun. So I hope the book is too! Thanks to my mother-in-law for this and another Alice Hoffman book!

What are you reading today or this weekend?
