What is your favorite opening scene? 

A man being hugged by a girl, behind them a pile of books is on fire.
First the colours.
Then the humans.
That’s how I usually see things.
Or at least, how I try.


You are going to die.

-Markus Zusak

The Book Thief (otherwise known as one of my all time favourite books) starts with this pretty iconic statement.

Gram is worried about me. It’s not just because my sister Bailey died four weeks ago, or because my mother hasn’t contacted me in sixteen years, or even because suddenly all I think about is sex. She is worried about me because one of her houseplants has spots.

-Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, another one of my all time favourite novels.

  2. I've never read either of these books. I've heard lots of great things about The Book Thief of course. The Sky is Everywhere sounds really good, so I'm going to add it to my TBR list. New follower on Bloglovin'. Here is my post.

  3. I loved The Book Thief and has beautiful passages in it. I can understand why Zusak's novel is on your list.
