First Line(s) Friday | May 21, 2021

Happy Friday! Today I am participating in First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books, AND First Lines Friday, hosted by Wandering Words!

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!

“Throughout history, Anonymous has been a woman.”

Anyone have any guesses on what book this is? I’ll give you a few clues…

Last chance to guess!

Today’s book is…

Behind every powerful man is a trained woman, and behind every trained woman is the Society. It started with tea parties and matchmaking, but is now a countrywide secret. Gossips pass messages in recipes, Spinsters train to fight, and women work together to grant safety to abused women and children. The Society is more than oaths—it is sisterhood and purpose.
In 1926, seventeen-year-old Elsie is dropped off in a new city with four other teenage girls. All of them have trained together since childhood to become the Wife of a powerful man. But when they learn that their next target is earmarked to become President, their mission becomes more than just an assignment; this is a chance at the most powerful position in the Society. All they have to do is make one man fall in love with them first.

“Throughout history, Anonymous has been a woman.”

I started reading A Sisterhood of Secret Ambitions on Tuesday, and I really like it so far! I think it has an amazing premise, and I’m really excited to see a HISTORICAL FICTION book with ACE REP and FAT REP! My review will be posted next month as part of the Turn the Page Tours blog tour, so look forward to that!
