Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 2

Hello all! I’m not going to preamble too much today- just tell you that I’m doing an extended version of the quote challenge, picking from my favourite first lines 😀 Here are the rules (I’m mostly ignoring):


  • 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 Angelica @The Book Cover Girls– I love Angelica’s entertaining reviews- she’s definitely inspired me to pick up so many good books (and warned me off reading some, which I’ve then read, and found that, yes, they were indeed shockingly bad *coughs* Foxhole Court *cough cough*). So if you haven’t been over there- go check her out!

Ah Rebecca is one of the most atmospheric books I’ve ever read- and all of that is captured in the evocative first line. This just so happens to be my mum’s favourite. She couldn’t wait for me to read it and was always telling me how poetic the opening was… she was right of course.

I tag:

Way Too Fantasy, Meltotheany and Ally Writes Things

Out of interest- have you been inspired by a parent to read a book? Which was it? Let me know in the comments! And see you all tomorrow!
