T5W:Favorite First Liners


First liners are important because it can make or break if a person wants to read it or not. For people like me who only glimpse at that summary then open the book to see if its something that you want to read. If not then it goes right back on the shelf. So here are some first liners that kept me interest to keep reading.

“My name is Lizzy Tucker, and I used to think I was normal.”

-from Wicked by Janet Evanovich

“When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home”

-from The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

“Today was the day a thousand dreams would die and a single dream would be born.”

-The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

“A stabbing pain jolts me awake.”

-from Alive by Scott Sigler

“I’m pretty much fucked”

-from The Martin by Andy Weir

So these are some of my favorite book first liners that I have come across in my reading life. Of course there more, because there will always be more to read them from. So my fellow book lovers have any favorite first liners let me know which ones they are. Until next time 🙂
