Hey there, book crawlers!

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for Speedy Quote Sunday! Here are a couple quotes that I really love and really struck me when reading the books.

“It’s not magic that makes you who you are. It’s the choices that you make. Look at Dorothy.” (Dorothy Must Die, Danielle Paige)

“Love isn’t obvious until you’re in it. It’s not a punch in the face that leaves you reeling, Love is gradual and sneaky. It grows like weeds between the cracks of a hundred average moments.” (The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried, Shaun David Hutchinson)

Sometimes when reading I get really stunned, like getting struck by lightning, when reading certain lines. Don’t we all, because of how they impact and relate to our own lives? It’s like getting advice and inspiration and I can never get enough of either. It’s beautiful and artful.

Magic and love. You’d swear they were nearly the same sometimes. Both can be scary and yet also breathtaking. It’s why I love these quotes. Paige is blunt and to the point. Hutchinson really nails you with a flawless punch to the heart.

Hello, bookworms galore! 

I know! I KNOW! You don’t have to tell me. I said I would get Speedy Quote Sunday back up and running months ago. Since it is the new year I am officially getting back on track with it, posting every other Sunday! Woohoo!

With Speedy Quote Sundays I like to pick a few quotes from books that really touched me and reached out to me in some way and share them. Sometimes an author really strikes you with their words. So, here are a couple of quotes that I really like.

 

“Those who know what it’s like in the dark will do anything to stay in the light.” (King’s Cage, Victoria Aveyard)

“Desperation and fear could make anyone do nearly anything, and sometimes a single sacrifice was necessary to save many.” (The Last Magician, Lisa Maxwell)

 

Both of these books really dug into me deeply. There were major emotions, especially those that include sobbing and desperation during dark times. Both books are amazing and I definitely recommend them.

Hey there you beautiful booksters you!

So, I’ve been TOTALLY slacking on the Speedy Quote Sunday and for that, I’m terribly sorry. I love doing this every other Sunday. It’s so much fun to share some of my most favorite book quotes.

Some book quotes just stick out to you whether they strike you in the heart, make you laugh, or just leave you inspired.

 

“Choose me. Choose the dawn.” (King’s Cage, Victoria Aveyard)

The moment I read this line my heart plummeted. So short, but so powerful. And some mega Grey’s Anatomy feels coming out of it too.

 

“I thought the food at college would be more edible than in our high school cafeteria, but apparently I was wrong.” (The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters Vol. 2 – Moonsong, L. J. Smith)

I loved this one because it was hilarious. This is always the number one mistake college Freshmen make.

“It’s amazing the difference
A bit of sky can make.” 

(Where the Sidewalk Ends, Shel Silverstein)

Who says a poem can’t be one of the most epic quotes too? This is like that beautiful dab of happiness and quirk that’ll always make you hopeful and always make you smile.

Lovers of books!

First off, I’m so sorry for my lateness with Speedy Quote Sunday. There was a tech issue and it didn’t publish. If you thought it did earlier today, well, it screwed up. I apologize, guys.

So I have some great quotes from books that make me happy and I enjoy them.

“Being a doll is an odd thing. I spend more time on the shelf than at play.” (King’s Cage, Victoria Aveyard)

The description used really made me shudder with some creeps. Dolls can be creepy. But this was also a perfect way to describe feeling useless, fragile, and thrown away.

 

“There is no shame in fear, my father told me, what matters is how we face it.” (A Clash of Kings, George R. R. Martin)

Very true! Fear is sticky business and to be afraid of things is natural. Facing those things is more terrifying, but such an adrenaline rush!

 

“If I’m going to die, I’d like to actually live first. And then I’ll die.” (Five Feet Apart, Rachael Lippincott)

This. So important! We’ll all die someday, but don’t forget to live!

NOTE!! READ!!

Hello, Booklovers!

Okay, so this is a quick post. More of an update, and I’m a big believer in updating folks on changes. It’s nothing major. Just, if you’ve saved my site or anything of the such (which you probably haven’t. No big! Just in case) I have changed the site name and domain to more align with my blog! Also, my username as well.

If nothing’s changed for then beautiful! No worries! Like I said, because I’m paranoid, and I love you all, I made minor changes.

See? Quick post. Still The Scarlet Reader here.

Heya Book Peeps!

Happy Sunday! You know what day it is! Book quote day–Speedy Quote Sunday. If you’re new to my blog and am clueless, here you go. Every other Sunday I post some of my favorite quotes or one from a book I’m planning on reading at some point in my life. I like doing this because it’s a way to connect with you guys and what books you enjoy.

Plus, I just like sharing quotes. Some of them just stick with you and make a crater-sized impact.

 

“Dreams that come true can be beautiful, but they can also turn into nightmares when people won’t wake up.” (Caraval, Stephanie Garber)

I’m waiting for Legendary to come out on paperback before reading which will be in May. I’m chomping at the bits and I won’t be able to wait for Finale that long so I’ll probably borrow the hardback and then buy the paperback for my collection. Caravel is so DAMN good! Swept me away and that’s something you aren’t supposed to let happen at Caraval. And, this quote always kind of stung. Dreams turning into nightmares. It’s always scarier when it happens while you’re away, because you can’t wake up then.

 

“Sometimes it takes more courage to stay in place than to move.” (Stain, A. G. Howard)

And it’s scary as hell. Be brave.

 

“Love with your mouth shut, help without breaking your ass or publicizing it: keep cool, but care.” (V., Thomas Pynchon)

All things we could all learn. Takes practice, but find the balance. Keep cool, but care. That one may be the hardest for me. I care too damn much about some things. LOL.

Hello, beautiful book lovers,

Here are some great quotes from some great books. Sometimes there are moments when a book will strike you with life-changing words.

 

“Sometimes only pain can heal.” (Dorothy Must Die, Danielle Paige)

Before it can get better you’ve got to get through the tough stuff. Sometimes it hurts. Sometimes it hurts a lot. But there’s good on the other side which is why like this quote.

 

“No one with a book is ever alone, even in the darkest moments.” (Ash and Quill, Rachel Caine)

So much love for this. It’s SO true.

 

“Is there a real-life block button? Because I need that in my life.” (Broken Prince, Erin Watt)

Dude…yes.
