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
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
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
She’d never killed before tonight.
2. The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
Once Upon a Time, at the End of the World.
1. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
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,
