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 😉 ):

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 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.

Quotes Challenge- Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants Style: Day 1

Hello all! Happy Friday- I will admit, I’ve been really lazy today, for the very silly reason of having worked out a bit too much yesterday. My thoughts when I finished were something along these lines:

And my thoughts when I woke up today were:

So anyway, I love this challenge, it’s one of my absolute favourite tags- which is why I’m super grateful to have been tagged by these *A-M-A-Z-I-N-G* bloggers:

Quote Challenge- Shakespeare Style: Day 8

This is it! I’ve reached the last day of this! As many of you know, I’ve been doing this for a few extra days so that I can thank the people that tagged me. And in honour of 400 years of Shakespeare, I’m solely quoting Shakespeare.

Here are my (altered) rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days however long it takes
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Thank you so much to Embuhlee for tagging me to do this. She is absolutely one of my favourite bloggers out there- I adore her posts- she is so funny and entertaining to read! And she creates so many of her own tags and shares them around. I can’t recommend her enough!

And cos I’m expressing all this affection, I think I’d better end with one of the best quotes about love in the universe:

Quote Challenge- Shakespeare Style: Day 7

Hi all! So I’m coming to the end of my quote challenge! After this there will only be one more day and one last quote (*sobs*) so I better make these last two count.

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days however long it takes
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Thank you so much to Rant and Rave About Books– firstly how incredible is that name- because don’t we all love to do that? Secondly, she is really fun to read and has such fabulous advice- like her post about lending kindle books, which you can read about here. I highly recommend checking her out!

And since it’s my second to last day doing this, I’m going to share one of my all-time favourite Shakespeare quotes:
