Book Beginnings #8

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to 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 currently reading One Wish in Manhattan by Mandy Baggot.

Hayley Walker had quit her job. She had quit her job. What had she been thinking?

This book has just come out (today!) and as I both love Mandy Baggot and festive fiction, I couldn't keep away. I had to have it.
I know that this is going to make me smile and laugh and probably want to cry a little, and I can't wait to get properly stuck in. I love that it seems to be just jumping right in a the deep end, plunging us into Hayley's problems.


  1. I have felt exactly like her when changing for visiting my blog today!...

  2. I do love the look of this one...thanks for sharing! Have fun with it...and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I'm wondering why she quit her job and why she's now having second thoughts. What happens next?
    My Friday post features Beneath Montana’s Sky.

  4. Oh! A good one to know about, since I'm doing the ho ho ho challenge in Nov. Thanks for visiting today!

    1. Me too, I can't wait. I love reading festive fiction.

  5. Aww. To be honest, it instantly had me thinking, "it's got to be for the best though, right?" as in helping a friend out. I immediately thought of unfair bosses and bullying, or even just plain hating a mundane job :)
    Have a great week,
    Amy x
