Top 5 Wednesday is held hosted by mods Lainey and Samantha over on goodreads 🙂
The topic this week: Favourite First Sentences
It was easy to chose one of these sentences, but hard to choose the other four because, first of all, I don’t remember a lot of first sentences and, secondly, most of my books are back in boxes in Australia. The few I do have in my flat in England didn’t have the most amazing first sentences, no matter how amazing the books are. I found a couple with those, though, and I had to do a little online research to find the other two. Eventually, I managed to put together this nice little list of 5 sentences that I think are pretty great :).
“When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home.”
“A secret’s worth depends on the people from whom it must be kept.”
“There was boy named Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.”
“Dear friend, I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and don’t try to sleep with that person at the party even though you could have.”
“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.”
