I think that the first sentences are one of the most important parts in a book so I picked five of my favourite first sentences. I have put them in no particular order.
“First the colours. Then the humans. That’s how I usually see things. Or at least how I try.”
The Book Thief
“Mr and mrs Dursley, of number four privet drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much”
Harry potter and the philosopher’s stone
“The end of the world started when a pegasus landed on the roof of my car”
The Last Olympian
“I had just come to accept that my life would be ordinary when extraordinary things began to happen.”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
“The way I figure it, everyone gets a miracle“
