First Line Fridays: “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han

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

Hey! Congratulations! We’ve reached another Friday!

I actually debated whether or not I will be joining today’s FLF since this week has been a slow one for reading-wise. The good news is, I finally finished that damned annual health report and ready to submit it to HR, so they, in turn, could submit it to the Department of Labor and Employment. That out of the way, I’m expecting more reading time for myself. So, yay, for me! 😊

Today I’m going to be sharing the first couple of lines of a book I plan to read this month as part of the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge. If you haven’t yet, go check out Shealea’s post about it and sign up. There are very cute badges for every reading milestone. Plus, you get to immerse yourself into more Asian reads by Asian authors. Ain’t that fun?




Josh is Margot’s boyfriend, but you could say my whole family is a little in love with him. It’s hard to say who most of all. Before he was Margot’s boyfriend, he was just Josh. He was always there. I say always, but I guess that’s not true. He moved next door five years ago but it feels like always.




I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I haven’t read any of Jenny Han’s books even though one of my friends, Lhea, has been pushing me forever to get her titles (starting with Burn for Burn because she’s just so in-love with that series.) I got around to buying the whole To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy in 2017, and it has been languishing on my shelves since then. (I swear my pile of unread books curse me every time I come home with a paper bag from the bookstore.) But its Netflix movie adaptation, which I loved,  reminded me about these books so I’m doing myself service and am picking them up now (kinda fitting too since it’s February.)

Anyway, that’s it for me today. I swear I’ll be working on my blog extra hard in the next week or so to compensate for the lack of posts the last couple of months. Here’s me wishing all of you a great weekend ahead. May it be filled with equally great books that make your hearts happy.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Falling for Grace” by Janet W. Ferguson:
    “It was finally over.”

    Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from American Omens by Travis Thrasher but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (8) here: “‘I believe.’ Dowland said with all the conviction and soul he could muster.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂

    Happy Friday! I’m sharing the first line from Death in the Stocks by Georgette Heyer on my blog today. This is the second line:

    “No lamp shone in the window but a full moon sailed in a sky the colour of sapphires, and lit the village with a pale light, as cold as the sheen on steel.”

    Thanks for joining us this week. It must feel good to have that annual report in. Definitely doesn’t sound as much fun as reading!

    I’m featuring “The Seamstress” by Allison Pittman on my blog, but I’ve just started reading “Atoning for Ashes” by Kaitlin Covel, so I’ll share that first line here:

    Josie had always detested black.

    Have a great weekend!
