Quote Challenges – Favourite First Lines: Day 10

Hello all! We’re coming to the end of my favourite first lines edition of the quote challenge- I so hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it! As always, 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 wonderful Sarah @Art Expedition for tagging me! I’ve talked about Sarah on this blog before- BECAUSE SHE’S SO BRILLIANT! Seriously, as you’ll see from her blog, she’s super talented and thoughtful in her posts. I just love her blog and can’t recommend it enough!

It’s been a while since I’ve read The Book Thief– because *wow* that book punches you in the gut- but I can’t forget being pulled into the story by this intriguing opening… and slowly realising who the narrator is.

I tag:

Beth, Melting Pots and Other Calamities and Jill Jemmett

Have you read this? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know in the comments!
