Hey there, book clan!
Some lines in books catch you. They can be relatable or get you to think in a way you haven’t before. They can be incredibly meaningful, outright funny, or eye-popping spicy. They slap you a good one, that’s for sure. And, that’s how this post came to be a favorite of mine.
I get to share a couple of lines and give you a peek into a couple books I’ve read. You may have read them yourself, or maybe not and you’ll add them to your TBR. This one is an appreciation post of Shaun David Hutchinson. Masterful with the supernatural, pulling emotional punches, and a compelling storyteller. And the coming-of-age LGBTQIA+ themes and healing from trauma is remarkable. He gives a story that not only piques intrigue but also contains life lessons that you will carry with you for as long as you live.
“Sometimes to get the things we want, we’ve got to endure things we don’t.” (Howl, Shaun David Hutchinson)
This line of thought breaks my heart. It’s a compromise people shouldn’t have to make when it involves their well-being, but they do. Still, it can test a person. They can learn what they’re willing to compromise for the right people.
“Sometimes I think gravity may be death in disguise. Other times I think gravity is love, which is why love’s only demand is that we fall.” (We Are the Ants, Shaun David Hutchinson)
If this is the way gravity works, I hope it makes me fall on my face. This is such a poetic take on falling in love. The way gravity naturally ties us to the planet and how love can tie us to one person. Just beautiful.
More to come soon…
