T5W | Favorite First Sentences

It’s Wednesday again! Top 5 Wednesday time!

For those who don’t know, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @Thoughts on Tomes – and you can find more details about it on the Goodreads group.

This week’s theme is “Favorite First Sentences”, here are my choices:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

“Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Childre

 “I had just come to accept that my life would be ordinary when extraordinary things began to happen.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower 

“Dear friend,. I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand. and didn’t try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have.”

City of Bones

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” the bouncer said, folding his arms across his massive chest.”

Just One Day

“What if Shakespeare had it wrong?”
