Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Opening Lines

The theme for this week’s Top 5 Tuesday is Top 5 Opening Lines. Some of these are books I’ve already read, and others are books I have on my ‘owned-books TBR’ and the lines make me want to read them soon.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (aka perhaps the most famous opening line in modern literature)

  • Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number 4 Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.

My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult

  • In my first memory, I am three years old and I am trying to kill my sister.

Pretending to Dance – Diane Chamberlain

  • I’m a good liar.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky (OK, technically it’s two lines!)

  • Dear Friend, I am writing to you because she said you listen, and didn’t try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have.

The Snowman – Jo Nesbo

  • It was the day the snow came.


I’m looking forward to reading what other people have as their top opening lines!
