This week’s T5W is your top five favorite first sentences. This one is fairly self-explanatory; just pick your favorite first sentences from books. This was an extremely fun T5W for me to participate in because I never realized how many first sentences are so incredibly well-written and gripping. This T5W actually gave me a greater appreciation for authors and their writing because it takes a lot to really envelop a reader into a story and the first sentence is definitely one of the most important parts of a book because it sets the tone for the rest of the novel. I love first sentences that really capture the true essence of the book as a whole and immediately catch and hold your attention, so I picked first sentences that, in my opinion, did just that.

This week’s T5W theme is most unlikeable characters! These are characters that aren’t supposed to be unlikeable, but you just weren’t fond of them at all.

I am not trying to offend anyone in any way and I will try my best not to completely bash on any characters, however, I will give my honest opinions about them and my reasonings behind why I’m not very fond of them as literary characters.

Before I begin this T5W post, I’d just like to apologize for the lack of reviews this week! There probably won’t be an actual review until the end of BookTube-A-Thon because I’m trying to spend as much time as I can this week reading, so I don’t really have any time to do a full-on review of any books! Nonetheless, by the end of the week I should be posting a review of The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater and mini-reviews of the books that I read during BookTube-A-Thon!

Anyways, today’s T5W is the most recent additions to your wishlist. I’m always looking for more books to read and I have an entire shelf on Goodreads dedicated to books that I have yet to own, but want to eventually look into getting. So, without further ado, here are the most recent additions that I’ve added to my wishlist! (I’m only going to be including books that have already been released because if I didn’t do that, this would probably be a list full of unreleased books!)
