I’m pretty sure it will be a five-star read for me. It’s one of my favourite books so far for 2020. I’ll post a review once I’m finished it.

I also love that I have a hard copy of the book. E-books are a great way to access books, especially during COVID times and I really appreciate that I can access e-books through my library system and through Open Books and Net Galley and I’m also very attached to the hardcover and paperback versions. I just love the feel of holding a book and turning the pages, rather than staring at a computer screen.

Here are ten of my favourite opening lines from some of my favourite books:

  1. The Nightingale by Kristan Hannah This is one of my favourite books. Reading it was like watching a movie unfold. I’m looking forward to the movie adaptation coming out Dec, 2021.


If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.”
