Top Ten Tuesday Link-up 5/25/20

Posted May 25, 2020 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 8 Comments

Welcome to TTT! I flaked this week… So sorry! Quarantine brain, I suppose. Anyway, the topic for the week is “Opening Lines” and you can interpret this any way you want. Best, favorite, funny, unique, shocking, gripping, lines that grabbed you immediately, etc. Sometimes I can throw together a post in 15-20 minutes when TTT slipped my mind, but this one takes a lot more thought than some. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to think! I’ve been VERY busy planning two fun things for this summer, though, so get excited about those and watch this blog over the next week!

Which books have particularly noteworthy opening lines?
And have you been plagued by quarantine brain any over the last two months?

  1. Been there – done that. I think we all have at one point or another. So, don’t even think about it.

    Anyway, I thought this was a thoroughly enjoyable topic. I was trying to remember the best opening lines but probably came up with the same that everyone else did. It just was lovely thinking abou tall those great books I have read so far.

    Thanks for alwyas doing this for us.

  2. I think we all get a pass on flaking out of blogging for the time being. There’s just so much to distract us!

    For me, one of my all time favorite opening lines comes from Don Winslow’s Savages. The first line makes up the entire first chapter, and it is simply “F**K You!” It really sets the scene for the crazy drug running story that follows.
