Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 11

Hello all! Yup, I’m still here with the quote challenge, talking about my favourite first lines. 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

Thank you so much to the amazing Marina @Books of Magic for tagging me to do this! I absolutely adore her *magical* blog, because it truly is a fantastical place for all bookworms! Her reviews are always so thorough. Plus she has *the best* taste in books- if I do say so myself 😉 I couldn’t resist ending on this book in honour of that!

I might need a minute to compose myself- because I can’t read this first line without feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. I’m also resisting the (impossibly strong) urge to pick this book up again and reread it for the millionth time. Naturally, this is on this list because it’s one of my favourites and reading this for the first time was the moment when I fell in love with fantasy (incidentally, the last line is just as good- but it took a while for me to find out cos as I’ve mentioned on this blog before *shock, horror* the last few pages were missing!! I’ve never been more desperate to get to a bookshop in my life!!)

I tag:

Susan, CJR Brit and Norrie

So have you read this book? And now that we’ve come to the end of this quote-journey, what are your favourite first lines? Share the love in the comments!
