Top Ten Tuesday | Opening Lines

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s prompt is *Opening Lines!* These are some of my favorite first lines that drew me in immediately.

“I’d never given much thought to how I would die — though I’d had reason enough in the last few months — but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this.” -Stephenie Meyer, Twilight

“There is something truly evil about plaid.” -Katie Henry, Heretics Anonynous

“All the best things in my life have started with a Dolly Parton song.” -Julie Murphy, Dumplin’

“I didn’t choose the wench life. The wench life chose me.” -Jen DeLuca, Well Met

“No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.” -Kim Liggett, The Grace Year

“There is blood under my fingernails. I wonder how many of my people I’ve killed this time.” -Brigid Kemmerer, A Curse So Dark and Lonely

“A boy went missing the night of the storm.” -Shea Ernshaw, Winterwood

“So here’s the file that almost killed me, Director.” Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman, Illuminae

“We were all villains in the beginning.” -Marissa Meyer, Renegades

“I’m on the toilet at the 9:30 Club, and I’m wondering how mermaids pee.” -Becky Albertalli, The Upside of Unrequited

The last one is my absolute favorite! 🤣

  1. Happy to see Heretics Anonymous in this mix! You have me SUPER curious about The Grace Year. And I’m thinking I might be due for a reread of The Upside of Unrequited soon!
