Book Beginnings on Friday: Wishful Drinking

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

"So I am fifty-two years old. (Apparently.)"

Wow, if Princess Leia is 52, that means I must be very old too. This opening line does set the tone for what proves to be a very honest and open confession of sorts by Ms. Fisher.

Geez, yes, Princess Leia should definitely NOT be that old. Good one.

I thought this book was a scream! Carrie Fisher lets it all hang out in the best way.
