First Lines #2

This post contains affiliate links

Hi everyone and welcome back to the series on my blog where we look at the first sentence of different books! I love doing this. A first sentence can really capture your interest and imagination. You can find my first lines posts and other indie book lists over on this page. So let's take a look at some first lines!

Eventually we all end up in the same place.



So, you’ve been gone for a while and you’re probably wondering what’s going on with us.



Explosions light up the dark, midnight sky, ruining my night vision, and giving away my position.



'It's so good to see Broadway alive again', Erica Harker announced, without any trace of irony, having been dead for a nudge over 60 years.



'Dr Rawcliffe, I can't believe what I've just done!'



My sister is going to kill me.



A pelican swoops down in front of me, beak first.



A tumultuous wave of long, blonde hair flew down the tight, shadow-encased alleyway as a kitchen knife stabbed the ground, fallen just short of the mark as it ripped the hem of her dress.



Her wedding day was perfect.



“I’m telling you, if we don’t do something, three-quarters of the population of Earth will be dead within twenty years, tops!”



“How long do you think they’ll keep dragging this farce out?”



The door to their quarters opened and Aiyana Cassidy entered, looking spent.



“Captain, they’re coming up the corridor!”



I remember my first Valentine's Day in school.



"There was a strange sound. It was deep and muffled, with an urgent cadence."



"For the last three-hundred-thousand years it had spun slowly in the darkness."
