don't you love the perfect first lines in a story? me too.
I'm reading the "Near Witch" by Victoria Schwab and I just love her first line, I've read it out loud, to no one, a million times. I just love it.
"It starts with a crack, a sputter, and a spark."
here's a couple more of my favorites,
"Saving the human race is a frantic business. Or a tedious one.
It all depends on what stage of the process you're taking part in."
"Pathfinder" by Orson Scott Card
does it get anymore epic than saving the human race?
I think not.
and here's a last one,
"Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.
It did not end well."
"Daughter of Smoke and Bone" by Laini Taylor
the woman tells you the whole story in the 1st two lines,
but it only entices you to read the whole book, brilliant!
There are more, many more but these are just from the books sitting by my computer.
tell me, which are your favorites?
