Hey there, book addicts!
I hope you are all doing well! It’s the haunting season! My favorite season! This is the Speedy Quote Sunday where I share a couple quotes from books I enjoy. I love doing this. In almost every book you read there’s always one or two moments that strike you and resonate for a while. They touch you and parts of your life and it’s magical. Here are a couple for me.
“The prospect of change is a many-fanged beast, my dear. It is not, however, appropriated to pay fearful obeisance to that best by cowering to the ruins of my stemware while you have orders up.” (Practical Deamonkeeping, Christopher Moore)
Change is a scary MoFo. For sure. I love how classily this is put though. Moore is a fantastic writer. Eloquent yet always with the funny. His style always reminds me to look at things from a different angle and that being weird is the coolest shit ever. Still, change…it’ll come at you whether you’re prepared to defend yourself or not.
“Something in the way he was looking at me froze me up and made my stomach do flip-flops though I couldn’t quite articulate why. I only knew that he looked as though he was seeing me for the first time.” (Bloodlines, Richelle Mead)
This is a feeling I can say I’ve experience only once or twice…maybe. I’m not somebody that latches on quickly. I find that if you are going to be picky it should be over food, ships, and the people that your heart lurches for. It’s inexplicable and possibly damning, but a feeling that you never want it to go away. Too bad it can be so short.
More to come soon…
