10 Books With Amazing First Sentences 2017 Edition

Hi everyone,

^My reaction when I spy a beautiful/fun/amazing/great first sentence!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the First Sentences Top 10 is back this year! I didn’t do it last year, probably because, just like this year, I want to do so many Top 10s, but there is also so much other stuff to do and organise. I have to pick a few and lose a few, or else I will just crash in the New Year (and I don’t want that).

So I had a lot of fun browsing through all my Monday’s First Sentence posts and pick 10 sentences that I loved the most. It wasn’t easy to pick 10, but I had fun seeing my earlier Monday’s First Sentence post and see what I liked back then.
