    Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is so good, and I definetly knew I would love it from the first sentences too! What a fun idea for a post. 😀 I really want to go look at some of my favorite stories and check out what the first lines were.

    First sentences are so cool! I really love the one for Something Real and it really makes me want to read the book. The Raven Boys has been on my TBR since forever, and that first line really makes me want to read it. This is such a great TTT topic. 🙂

    OOH, I love these haha! I want to read all these books now! The only one I’ve read on this list is The Battle of the Labyrinth and I agree – Rick Riordan’s first sentences are always flawless!

    I remember when I was younger and I’d get library books out, I’d always read the first few sentences of each book and decide which one to read first based on which first few lines I loved the most – I think I should start doing that again!

    Wonderful topic!

    AHHH SO MANY OF THESE ARE MY FAVOURITES TOO. Basically every Rick Riordan book EVER. He is the master of the bestest first sentences. *nods* Also Maggie Stiefvater. BLUE. You darling kissing killer. :’) And I’m 1000% intrigued by Simon (yes yes I know I know I need to read it and I willlll I promissssse) and Something Real now! OH. And the entire book of Me & Earl & The Dying girl was hysterical. I particularly busted up laughing at the point where he says his book should NEVER be a movie. And it is a movie now. XD OMG GREG.
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
