My bookish Top 3: Best first lines

Have you ever felt "trapped" by a book since the first line you read?
Well, there are some books that leave you so excited to read the next lines, the next pages, the next chapters! just by reading the awesome introduction the authors create!
That's why today I want to share with you my favorite (and the best, for me) first lines of a book.
"My name is not Mara Dyer, but my lawyer told me I had to choose something. a pseudonym, a nom de plume, for all of us studying for the SATs. I know that having a fake name is strange, but trust me—it’s the most normal thing about my life right now..."


“My father took one hundred and thirty-two minutes to die.
I counted.
It happened on the Jellicoe Road. The prettiest road I’d ever seen..."

I’ve been locked up for 264 days.
I have nothing but a small notebook and a broken pen and the numbers in my head to keep me company. 1 window. 4 walls. 144 square feet of space. 26 letters in an alphabet I haven’t spoken in 264 days of isolation.
6,336 hours since I’ve touched another human being.


  1. Ooh, those first two really intrigued me! :o

    1. The books are awesome! I hope you have the chance to read it! :)

  2. I like the last the best-all the numbers just really intrigue me (of course, I've read the book so I know what's to come!)
