——Today’s Topic—–

Favorite First Sentence.(Pretty self-explanatory) Favorite first sentences of a book.

Since I’m not sure which are my favorites I’ll share 5 first sentences I’ve read that made me intrigued to read each book.

Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn 

1st Sentence: Tonight, I’m doing Evan Brown’s girlfriend a favor.

  • The sentence reminds me of a 90’s movie called Jawbreaker & Mean Girls. It’s not that this book is anything like those movies it just sets a tone familiar to them. There’s a sassy personality detected and I find it interesting.

 Just Remember to Breathe by Charles Sheehan Miles

1st Sentence: From the moment I put my mom’s car in drive, my coffee mug still on the roof, I could tell it was going to be a rough day.

  • It’s interesting how small signs can lead you down a certain path. There’s a song by Francesca Battistelli called This Is The Stuff that reminds me of how the smallest thing is used to illustrate where we’re at in life.

Livin’ La Vida Lola by Misa Ramirez

1st Sentence: When I was fourteen years old I snapped pictures of Jack Callaghan doing the horizontal salsa in the backseat of a car with Greta Pritchard. 

  • This first sentence sets a great tone to how amateur sleuth Lola Cruz came to become an amateur sleuth. I also like the use of horizontal salsa to describe a scandal. 

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renèe Ahdieh

1st Sentence: It would not be a welcome Dawn.

  • I was quite intrugued to know what was next.

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

1st Sentence: Who am I? 

  • This first sentence is something we ask ourselves quite often. I was especially intrigued to figure out the answer

So this is my contribution to the Top 5 Wednesday meme and as always, thanks so much for reading and feel free to share your T5W in the comments below.
