Book Beginnings on Fridays (1)


Every Friday Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Gillian at Rose City Reader where you can 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.

I am getting an IV infusion today so wanted to start something that I thought would be a little more fun. In the past I listened to Broken (in the best possible way) by Jenny Lawson and absolutely loved it. I decided to bring Furiously Happy by the same author today and it started with some laughs at the author's expense. She is one of the most down to earth, funny authors I have read. It really is something to read about her struggles but I do love it. 

Onto the first sentence, and it's a doozy. 

First sentence: "You're not crazy. STOP CALLING YOURSELF CRAZY," my mom says for the eleventy billionth time. "You're just sensitive. And...a little...odd."
