Bookish Friday – First Lines

This is a weekly meme hosted by Laurie Reads and Niffler Reads. Every Friday, they post a list of bookish things based on the prompt they provided. The prompts for Feb to May can be found here.

This week’s prompt is First Lines. Here’s my list:

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

“Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

“Sometimes it seems like all I ever do is lie.” – The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

“It wasn’t a very likely place for disappearances, at least at first glance.” – Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

“I have just returned from a visit to my landlord – the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with.” – Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” – The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

“‘We should start back,’ Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them. ‘The wildlings are dead.'” – A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
