May 26: Opening Lines (Best, favorite, funny, unique, shocking, gripping, lines that grabbed you immediately, etc.)
As you guys know, I do first lines Fridays every Friday, so I thought why not choose my top 10 favourite books from there.
Outside the weather was burning hot, but inside the display shelves spilled over with fluffy, deviously inviting mountains of cream and sugar mixed into that heavenly desert known as gelato.
You have the sweet with a dash of mystery in here. I’m adding the first lines Friday post here.
It’s funny, even when you know something’s coming, it can still take you by surprise. I’ve known for months this letter would arrive, but I still can’t bring myself to open it.

The kind of air that leaves you sticky straightaway, sweat trickling along your spine, and you almost can’t wait for the sweet relief of the cold shower awaiting you at the end of the night.

I reviewed this one so you check out here.

“Are you sure you won’t come with us?” Mom hangs out of the passenger window and wraps me in a fierce hug for the tenth time in the last ten minutes.
A lot of people love this book, I have mixed feelings about it.
