1st Sentences | Top 5 Wednesday [#31]

NEW-TOP-5-WEDNESDAY

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 – 1st Sentences.

1st sentences are a mood setter when it comes to a book or story. They can either be really exciting and fun, or dull and boring. I’ve read some really good ones over the years, and I’ve also read some pretty horrible ones. Luckily for you guys I have chosen the good ones in my opinion. I picked up some of my favorite and recent reads this time around. So sit back and enjoy!


5. Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Tell Me Three Things

Seven hundred and thirty-three days after my mom died, forty-five days after my dad eloped with a stranger he met on the internet, thirty days after we then up and moved to California, and only seven days after starting as a junior at a brand-new school where I know approximately no one, an email arrives.

4. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything, Everything

I’ve read many more books than you. It doesn’t matter how many you’ve read. I’ve red more. Believe me. I’ve had the time.

3. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Falling Kingdoms

She’d never killed before tonight.

2. The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

The Scorpion Rules

Once Upon a Time, at the End of the World.

1. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Nevernight

People often shit themselves when they die.


SOME OF THESE ARE PRETTY SIMPLE, BUT EFFECTIVE. AND I KNOW THE EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING ONE IS TECHNICALLY MORE THEN ONE SENTENCE. SUE ME.

I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. What are some of your favorite 1st sentences? Let me know!

Until next time,

  1. The first and last one totally caught my attention. First off, who counts those days out? That’s pretty intense, but also adds to the ridiculousness of the situation the protagonist is in. I loved all these, and they all managed to catch my attention for sure 🙂

  2. Loved reading Everything Everything! I can’t wait to get my hands on her new book The Sun Is Also A Star. Hopefully it is just as amazing!

    Great Top 5! 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! 😀
