Friday Favorites

I always feel like I have the best intentions to do a First Lines Friday post. But over the last year and a half I really have done that many FLF posts. To be honest, there aren’t a lot of first lines that jump out at me. Yet, I’m always coming across funny, poignant, swoony, and jaw dropping quotes in the books I’m reading and want to share. Or, I listen to a podcast I just can’t wait to share with someone. And, of course, I’m always coming across posts by other bloggers that I find brilliant. I decided to start a Friday feature on my blog that works better for me.

I figure that sometimes I’ll share a great quote, other times it may be a favorite book, and sometimes I’ll even share more than one favorite in a post! And I’m sure, quite frankly, there will be plenty of Fridays that I miss posting altogether. After all, I’m known for my procrastination.

I’m starting this feature off with a quote from a book I just reviewed on the blog yesterday. This one made me laugh out loud so much my husband wanted to know what was so funny. Once I explained the situation and told him the quote, he even laughed. (Sorry fellas!)

I feel like an explanation to the situation makes this quote that much more funny and memorable so, before I give the quote, I’m actually going to set the scene for this one.

The character Cameo is an immortal who finds herself in a perilous situation. She’s being attacked by Sky Serpents and has been grabbed by the ankle and flown up high into the sky before dropping to the earth and feeling all of her internal organs burst.

Her pain was so strong, so shrill she could almost understand a man’s suffering when he had a cold.

The Darkest Promise by Gena Showalter

I mean, c’mon. That is hilarious! Never did I expect Cameo to have such a great sense of humor.

Well folks, I’m looking forward to sharing more of my favorites with you in the coming weeks. Have a great weekend!
