Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite First Sentences

I am excited to post again this week with Top 5 Wednesday! T5W is a weekly meme is hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes.  You can visit the Goodreads T5W group for more info. I decided to pick an old topic for this week’s post. When I saw Favorite First Sentences, I knew I had to post about it!

I hope you enjoy some of my favorite first lines.


I love these quotes because they are varied and memorable and begin some of my favorite novels. I have put these quotes in no particular order.
