Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 5

Hello all! Back again for my favourite first line post 😀 As usual, here are the rules I’m breaking:


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

Thank you so much to the fantastic Flora the Sweaterist for tagging me to do this! She’s a marvellous bi-lingual blogger, doing book and movie reviews in both English and Hungarian! So worth checking her out!

There is so much characterisation in this first line!! Although Pride and Prejudice might technically have one of the best lines ever written, I actually prefer this because it was this line that made me understand Austen’s humour and become addicted to her beautiful books.

I tag:

Do any of you love Austen? If so, when did you fall for her writing style? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I live Austen I can’t remember when I read her books first. I think Pride and prejudice was free with a newspaper or a voucher sometime in my teens and that started me off. 😀 I’m a huge classic fan now

  2. I love this! Emma is such a good book… I read it for my A-Levels and I try to re-read it every year, because the sarcasm and satire is just so strong. Good choice!
