Top 5 Wednesday 

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly post that is hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes and there is also a Goodreads group where you can find more information.
This weeks topic is Favorite First Sentences. I decided to use books that are currently on my bookshelves this week, mainly because it was easy for me to flip through them, then take pictures of the first line. Some of these books are still on my TBR and are only based on my initial impression of the first line. 

Favorite First Sentences:

First up is The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel. In case you can’t quite read that, the first line says; The heat came with the devil. So simple and yet so interesting to me. 

Next pick is 14 Days to Die by A. B. Whelan. It says; It was a fine winter day that eighth of February when I decided to kill my husband. Wow, this is coming up in my TBR list soon and after reading that killer opening line I’m so excited to read it! 

Shatter Me is my next pick, doesn’t that line make you desperate to know why she’s been locked up for so long?! It says; I’ve been locked up for 264 days. 

This Savage Song is my next choice, it says; The night Kate Harker decided to burn down the school chapel, she wasn’t angry or drunk. Hello, attention grabber! 

Did you guys really think I was going to make a list and not include It Ends With Us? 😂 It says; As I sit here with one foot one either side of the ledge, looking down from twelve stories above the streets of Boston, I can’t help but think about suicide. 

What are your favorite first lines?

    Wow! This is a really nice post and I never thought to sit down and read first lines of novels before. I mean, I know that first lines are important, but to sit down and read them… they are powerful and they want you to read the books. Nice choices… well, except for the last one since I try not to read about books about suicide. Also, I found it funny about the day she decided to kill her husband because I have a collaborative story in the works where the women think about killing their husband but then something else happens.
