  1. Great Top 5! I’ve had Room for a little while now. I bought the book after seeing the movie…I just don’t know why I haven’t read it yet! That needs to change, and soon! I really loved the movie! 😀

    I never even thought to write down or mark the great first sentences in the books I’ve read, so this week’s topic was a little hard. I had to switch it up a bit 🙂 My T5W! 😀
