Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 3

Hello all! In case you missed my last posts, I’m currently doing the quote challenge- here are the rules:


  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Except I’m doing it for more than three days (also it’s on a “favourite first line” theme 😀 )

Thank you so much to the awesome Sam @Modern Witch’s Bookshelf– she’s such a friendly blogger and I always appreciate her fantastic recommendation posts and awesome reviews! Definitely recommend you check her out! And cos I know she’s an awesome modern witch, I had to pick this quote for her…

Well, I wouldn’t be a proper millennial if I hadn’t been massively influenced by the infamous Harry Potter. Of course, reading this line for the first time as a seven year old, I couldn’t have been more hooked (I incidentally went on to read the first three books in a row- alas the fourth was not out yet).

I tag:

Kat, Raistlin and The Cozy Pages

And for those of you that have read it- that were your first memories of Harry Potter? Let me know in the comments!

  1. What a great way to start out a book!
    whatever I think of Potter and Rowling by the end, I am glad it got a whole generation of kids reading. I suspect it changed literary history for quite some time…

  2. Oh can you even be classed a millennial now if Harry Potter didn’t have a large influence on your life? That’s such an iconic line, I just had to read the first couple of word and I instantly knew what book you were quoting and I wanted to pick up the Harry Potter series again! 😀

  3. Thanks so much for the tag, and ending this series of posts on a quote that a lot of book lovers I know will love very much. I have never been a huge Harry Potter fan, but then again I only saw the movies and have never read the books. Maybe I should give those a try at some point to see if that will change my point of view 😊😊

  4. I feel kind of ashamed to admit but when Harry Potter came out I was completely annoyed by the fuss everybody made about it and so I decided not to read it. Thankfully a friend of mine convinced me to give it a go and lend me the first two – suffice to say I was a complete goner from the first sentence and eternally hooked. 😉 Every new book was immediately purchased afterwards and read in two, max 3 days – and re-read right again! 😂
