Best Opening Lines From Books I Read So Far in 2021

  1. Fun post! That line from Pride and Premeditation, “It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a brilliant idea, conceived and executed by a clever young woman, must be claimed by a man.” Has too much truth to it in the real world! But, it sure would keep me reading after that.
