#T5W Favorite First Sentences


Top 5 Wednesday was originally created by Lainey from Gingerreadslainey and is now hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes.  There is a Goodreads group which lists the topics.

The topic for this week is favorite first sentences

“All children, except one, grow up.”- Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

“Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,’ grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.”- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

“The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another his mother called him ‘WILD THING!’ and Max said ‘I’LL EAT YOU UP!’ so he was sent to bed without eating anything.”- Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.”-Madeline by

And last but not least my all time favorite opening line:

“Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”- Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. Rowling
