Hello loves, you lover of books, of the great storytelling page!
Ever have those quotes in books that really stick with you? They cling to your heart, leaving little trails that you look back on and remember fondly whether it’s happy or sad or so moving that you get teary-eyed. I know I have many. I could probably make a book out of them.
Here are a few of my favorites.
“To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about it, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted.” (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han)
In honor of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before coming soon to Netflix. I’m unbelievably excited. If you haven’t seen the trailer go do it right now. I’m serious! Go! I’m not going anywhere! Jenny Han has such a delicacy to her writing. It’s beautiful and pure and the the point of when innocence meets the grown-up world.
“Nothing had changed. Everything had changed.” (The Life and Death of Charlie St. Cloud, Ben Sherwood)
Though quite short, this line is so powerful. I love it because I think about how life changes every day whether by a lot or by a little. We may notice it, though I’m pretty sure we don’t until it’s changed so much. It just gets me all nostalgic.
“You were like a lighthouse in a storm. That’s all. I didn’t want to freak you out. I was just happy to find you.” (Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future, A.S. King)
This is a quote that was just so beautifully written that I had to share. Everybody needs that one person that they can find when it’s gets so dark that you can’t see. You know what I’m saying. Someone who can find you and pull you out, or at least guide you out.
More to come soon…
