Hellooo 🙂 So lockdown was officially lifted here in Spain (for the most part) and as of yesterday my province is finally in phase 1 meaning bars and restaurants are aloud to open which is exciting. I am surrounded by bars where I live and so after two months of dead silence it’s super weird to hear so many people outside.
Anyways today I am back for another round of Top 5 Tuesday. I skipped last week because I was totally stumped. This weeks topic is Top 5 Opening Liners. I just spent the last ten minutes opening up all the books in my room so let’s get started.
Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian
There should be a limit on how long any human being has to wear braces.
I had braces for two years. I understand the pain.
Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Steifvater
This is going to be a story about the Lynch brothers.
I already knew this going in but still, I read this first line and I was like “sign me the fuck up”.
Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer
Nita stared at the dead body lying on the kitchen table.
I like first lines that insinuate recent death or murder.
The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic
Neil Josten let his cigarette burn to the filter without taking a drag.
Is my obsession with the series showing? Good.
Vicious by V.E Schwab
Victor readjusted the shovels on his shoulder and stepped gingerly over an old, half-sunken grave.
Again. I like books that make me think “oo murder and death” or something along those lines. I read this and I’m intrigued.
BONUS: Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief
Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood.
One word: Iconic.
Can we all just take a minute and think of that first episode of the newly announced Disney+ show. The screen is black and then … “look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood”. Agh! I’m so excited.
So there we go those are the best opening liners (at least among the books I own). Thanks for reading and stay safe 🙂
