Top 5 Wednesday (14) | Awesome First Sentences

top 5 wednesday

It’s been a while since I’ve done a T5W but I felt like I could answer this topic, so yay. Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey and is currently hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to join Top 5 Wednesday take a look at the Goodreads group!

The topic of today is 

August 17th: Favorite First Sentences
— Pretty self-explanatory. Favorite first sentences of a book.

This topic was difficult for me because I only really remember two, maybe three, first sentences and only one of them is going on this list. So what I ended up doing was going through the books I have here at home and I picked the openings I like best. So these are probably not my “all-time favorites” but who cares. They’re good ones anyway.

philosopher's stone first sentence

Who doesn’t love the opening of Philosopher’s Stone?? It’s the only one I know by heart, apart from Pride and Prejudice

.
What’s your favorite opening? Do you like any of the ones I picked?

    The lines from both Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Warm Bodies sound really interesting. I’ll have to check them out. Thanks!

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone has an amazing start! Must get to it soon 😀 Warm Bodies has also intrigued me after reading the first line…

    Great Top 5! I’m loving the one for Please Ignore Vera Dietz. It’s been a while since I read it, but I do remember that I enjoyed it! 🙂 I never even thought to write down or mark the great first sentences in the books I’ve read, so this week’s topic was a little hard. I had to switch it up a bit 🙂 My T5W! 😀
