First Chapter, First Paragraph #13: Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke!!

First Chapter, First Paragraph is one of the two memes that I will be alternating on Thursdays in place of my Ink & Batter posts during the summer, when I won't be baking due to the heat!

I discovered this meme via the ladies of My Shelf Confessions, and it is hosted on Tuesdays by Bibliophile by the Sea. But since I already have my blog tours posts and Tell Me Tuesdays, I thought that it'd work best on Thursdays for me!

The idea of this meme/feature is quite self-explanatory from its name, we share the first paragraph of the first chapter of our current read! Quite a good teaser for others to read and see if they'd be intrigued!

This is another of those ARCs that I was more than happy to get but that somehow its release date sneaked on me! So I'm now reading it and hoping to finish it soon so I can schedule the review for my vacation time!

Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke

"They've been lying from the start. From the first time we read the words "once upon a time", we're fed the idea that these girls - these gorgeous, demure, singing-with-the-wild life girls - get a happy ending. And I get it. Poor thing had to do some chores around the house, fine. But the idea that she needs a magic old lady to come down and skim off the dirt so the prince will see her beauty? That's ridiculous. Maybe she should have been working on her lockpicking skills instead of serenading squirrels. She could have been busted out, hitched a ride to the castle, and impressed the prince with her safe-cracking prowess."
