T.T.T. Best Opening Lines!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Ten opening lines!

This took a lot of research. I went through so many of my books! I cannot wait to see everyone’s posts!! Just an FYI, I count the prologue!

Pride and Prejudice

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”

“People disappear all the time.

Late one evening toward the end of March, a teenager picked up a double-barreled shotgun, walked in to the forest, put the gun to someone else’s forehead and pulled the trigger.”

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

“So here’s the file that almost killed me, Director.”

Red Rising (Red Rising Saga, #1)

“I would have lived in peace.”

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

“TO MANY I WAS A MYTH INCARNATE, the embodiment of a most superb legend, a fairy tale.

Eliza and Her Monsters

“Eliza Mirk is the kind of name you give to the creepy girl who clings to her ex-boyfriend for weeks after he’s dumped her because she refuses to accept that he hates her guts.”

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

“Kell wore a very peculiar coat.”

The Shadows Between Us

“They never found the body of the first and only boy who broke my heart. And they never will.”

I had to add the second line!!


“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.”

Stay safe and healthy everyone! Until next week!

    • Haha… I actually looked up several of these in my actual books but couldn’t find my copy of The Nightingale and went with google. So I hope it is for both of us. hahaha!


    • haha! I know, but I just couldn’t skip them because I ALWAYS read them and consider them part of the beginning. Although, I’ve recently seen some people skip them!!
