I participate in so many memes that the number of meme posts could be overwhelming each week. This year I decided to break my memes up group like memes together. Some of my favorite memes share quotes, so I’ve put together one post each week for all of my quote memes. Click on the logo for each meme to be taken to the host’s blog.
This week I am featuring quotes from Jessica Brody’s A Week of Mondays.
Join Rose City Reader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Add your (url) post to the Linky on Freda’s Voice.
*It’s that simple.
I comb my fingers through my hair, trying to give it a bit of lift. It’s still limp and yarnlike from my jaunt in the rain this morning. But really, the only things that needs help right now is my attitude.
The idea of this feature is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Each week there is a link-up at (un)Conventional Bookviews for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.
I scan the table. “Does the banana bread have almonds in it? I’m allergic.”
“Not like deathly allergic,” Owen adds. “Her lips just get all swollen and apelike. It’s pretty funny actually.”
Daphne doesn’t look amused. “No,”
Owen snatches up a piece of banana bread. “Great. We’ll take it.” He hands her a dollar and unwraps the bread, stuffing a piece into my mouth.
“Oweh,” I complain as I chew and swallow. “I can feed myself, thank you very much.”
