Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 1

Hello all! It’s been a hot minute since I did one of these quote challenges and as many of you know I like to put a bit of a spin on each one. For this one, I’m gonna be talking about beginnings. A lot of books are love at first line- but these ones are lines that have a special place in my heart. So I thought it might be fun to use the opportunity to talk about some of my favourite first lines and what they mean to me.

Also, since I have a lot of favourite first lines, I thought it would be good to do one for each of the people that tagged me, so there will be more than the prescribed three posts. Here are the rules (that I’m going to ignore because I’m a rebel 😉 ):


• 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 lovely Journey into Books for tagging me to do this one- her blog is full of great reviews and she’s always doing a fresh take on weekly memes- definitely recommend checking her out!

I fell in love with this book when I was startled into laughter by this extraordinary first line. Such a perfect, perfect beginning for a quirky book about a family living in a dilapidated castle.

And that’s all for today- catch you tomorrow!
