a dowry of blood

This is my last love letter to you, though some would call it a confession. I suppose both are a sort of gentle violence, putting down in ink what scorches the air when spoken aloud.A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson

a single thread of moonlight
The shop had a welcome stillness about it. That sometimes happened in rooms full of books. Strange, when each book, each page, each line was filled with a clamour of words and voices, that being in a room full of them should be so peaceful.A Single Thread of Moonlight by Laura Wood

‘I once promised,’ he said, ‘that I would never ask you to be less than who you are. But if you set yourself on fire to warm a frozen world, I will not stand by and watch you burn.’Redemptor (Raybearer #2) by Jordan Ifueko

the antropocene reviewed
Rivers keep going, and we keep going, and there is no way back to the roof of that hotel. But the memory still holds me together.The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green

under the whispering door
If we worry about the little things all the time, we run the risk of missing the bigger things.Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune

I am going to tell you a story you already know. But listen carefully, because within it is one you have never heard before.The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu

Top Ten Tuesday – Quotes About Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Book Quotes. For this topic I decided to list some quotes that are about books themselves, I love reading quotes that speak to the reader inside me.


The book haunted like a ghost in her head coloring moods until she shook herself from it. – The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

How much easier it would be if everyone knew their role: the hero, the sidekick, the villain. Our books would be neater and our souls less frayed. But whether you have blood or ink, no one’s story is that simple. – The Library of Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

I spent my life folded between the pages of books. – Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

But life isn’t as orderly as a story or a song; it does not always begin and end at compelling points. – The Air You Breathe by Frances de Pontes Peebles

Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes –characters even—caught in the fibres of your clothes, and when you open the new book they are still with you. – The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

Most people couldn’t have ignored a demon sharing the library with them, but most people didn’t love books as much as I did. – Taming Demons for Beginners by Annette Marie

One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us. – Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare

It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. – Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read. – Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare

Never waste time on bad books. There were too many amazing stories out there waiting to be discovered. – Rejected (Shadow Beast Shifters #1) by Jaymin Eve

Have you read any of these books? What quotes do you like?

fave book quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Favourite Book Quotes. I’ve already done a post about my favourite book quotes before which you can find here. Below are some of my most recent favourite quotes.

The world shifts, tilts, sometimes collapses. But sometimes, it bends toward you, and everything feels right. – Rebel (Legend #4) by Marie Lu

Fear was a poison. Fear was a prison. Fear was the bridesmaid of regret, the butcher of ambition, the bleak forever between forwards and backwards. – Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle #3) by Jay Kristoff

Just like that, things change–the faint, filmy bubble of summer pops, September’s cool breath whooshes in, and life moves on. – Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer

If remembering tells us who we are, then forgetting keeps us sane. If we recalled every song we’d ever heard, every touch we’d ever felt, every pain no matter how small, every sadness no matter how petty, every joy no matter how selfish, we could surely lose our minds. – The Air You Breathe by Frances de Pontes Peebles

You do not know how fast you have been running, how hard you have been working, how truly exhausted you are, until someone stands behind you and says, “It’s OK, you can fall down now. I’ll catch you.” – The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Through love, all is possible. – House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J Maas
