Hello, loves! It’s Speedy Quote Sunday.
Here are a few quotes from books that really made an imprint on my heart. Sometimes they do that. They’ll make you melt. Twist you up. In most cases, they’ll stay with you because they added meaning to your life. That or they made you laugh so hard you nose-sprayed your drink.
“There are moments in your life you wish with all your heart you could take back. Like, just erase from existence. Like, if you could, you’d erase yourself right out of existence too, just to make that moment not exist.” (It’s Not Summer Without You, Jenny Han)
The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy is one that I read every summer. It’s innocence and first love and the beach. There are these bits that always get to pause. This was definitely one of them.
“Didn’t anyone tell you it’s not polite to skip ahead to the end of the book?” (The Librarians and the Lost Lamp, Greg Cox)
Okay, so I’m guilty of this. I can’t help it! I just want to know if it’s worth the journey. There’s nothing worse than going on this great journey only for the ending to be utterly dreadful. Plus, if that ending captures me, then I definitely want to get there.
“My mother once told me that diamonds were born of pressure, but I never understood what she meant until I met you.” (The Dark Calling, Kresley Cole)
The Dark Calling had so many moments that ripped my heart. With such nonstop intensity and incredible heartache, I was a mess. Cole has a way of sticking her hand through your chest, grabbing your heart, and twisting it.
