First Lines Friday – May 31

This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

Here are my first lines:

“Well, this was a first. ‘Deboarah?’ I said as I knocked softly, yet still with enough intensity to convey the proper urgency, on the door. ‘It’s Louna. Can I help you with anything?'”

Do you recognize these first lines?

And the book is… Once and For All by Sarah Dessen.

Goodreads synopsis:

As bubbly as champagne and delectable as wedding cake, Once and for All, Sarah Dessen’s thirteenth novel, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine. 

Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that’s why she’s cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm’s length. But Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged, now that he’s met the one girl he really wants. 

Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humor, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself.

Have you read Once and For All? What did you think of it?

  1. I have a copy of That Summer and I just ordered Along For The Ride! She seems like a great author, fun to read. I’ll put this on my list to read next!
