First Line Fridays: “Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen” by Sarah Bird

First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.

Heya! It’s Friday!

I’m pretty excited to share my FLF pick for today because I have something special coming up next week related to it.



Here’s the fist thing you need to know about Miss Cathy Williams: I am a daughter of a daughter of a queen and my mama never let me forget it. 








I just started reading Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen yesterday and I’m hooked. I couldn’t put it down. Cathy Williams is such an interesting character, tough and proud and brave. Also, I think the fact that I haven’t read much historical fiction set during the years when the Civil War happened made reading this all the more “more.” I learn and enjoy both at the same thing, which is really something.

Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen comes out next week, September 4, and I’m excited to announce that I’m part of the blog tour for it. I was lucky to have a Q&A with the author, Sarah Bird. I will be putting up that post next week on the 8th, along with a giveaway, so stick along for that.



let's chat

    Happy Friday!😊

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading shortly, Unleashed by Donna Kauffman.

    Emma Lafferty’s life had gone to the dogs. Literally. And to the cats. And the parakeets, goldfish, hamsters, even the occasional potbelly pig. What it and her fledgling pet-sitting service hadn’t gone to was her bank account. Not enough, anyway.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖

    I am loving this book, Rachel, and I’m so excited you are on the blog tour! Can’t wait for your author Q&A!

    Happy Friday! I shared a different one over on my blog, but I’m also reading Silence the Girls by Pat Barker that takes place in ancient Troy.

    “Great Achilles. Brilliant Achilles, shining Achilles . . . How the epithets pile up.”

    Happy reading!
