SAY WHAT?! First & Then Blog Tour + Giveaway

Hello everyone,
I am so excited to be part of the First & Then blog tour! It's superlatives-themed and I got SAY WHAT?! This was perfect for me because I'm a collector of quotes. I'll be sharing my favorite quotes from First & Then and author Emma Mills will be sharing her favorite YA quotes.

But first...
Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn't want them first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself.

Here are my favorite quotes from First & Then.
If you read my review of First & Then, you'll kind of understand why I picked the quotes I did.

  1. It's a little cheesy, but almost everyday before work I tell myself, "Have courage and be kind." I always want to be warm and friendly when I got to work :)

  2. I like the idea that this is a cross between Friday Night Lights and P&P!

  3. As a fan of both football & Austen, this book sounds wonderful!

    I absolutely LOVE quotes...a favorite of mine is by Louisa May Alcott: "Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”

  4. "If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it."

  5. I'm an Austen freak! I should love this. My life quote actually comes from the Bible, although the Mamas and the Papas made it into a popular song in the 60's:

    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven

  6. First and Then sounds awesome, thanks for the giveaway!
    A quote I try to live by? "I can and I will."
