Book Beginnings on Friday

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. 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.

Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest to Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, or Why Pie is Not the Answer by Jen Lancaster
"Today on the bus a guy called me a fat bitch."
This is a funny memoir about weight loss. And Jen Lancaster is the master of one-liners, hence this one being so perfect. It tells you so much about her and you get her voice and tone immediately.
