So, my internship and finals are over! Huzzah! That means I got to pick up my reading pace! Aaand I got to read three 5-star books over the past week. I’m on a roll, y’all!
I’ve also decided to start listing my favorite quote(s) of my reads over the week from now on. There have been too many instances when I’d come across a quote that I’ll love but then later forget what exactly it was or which book it belonged to. And that’s just too frustrating! So I intend to make sure to bookmark these quotes from now on. And what better way to do that than making a weekly blog post about it?
I just hope I can stick to it!
“Let them start their dreadful wars, let destruction rain down, and let plague sweep through, but I will still be here, doing my work, holding humankind together with love like this.”
‘You feel lonely sometimes?’ Always, she wants to say. Worse is when she feels lonely in the company of others.
While the first quote made me stop a second and actually feel the depth in it, the second one had me feeling sad and just relate to it in a whole another level.
Also, can I just say that I’ve been such a big fan of Melina Marchetta for the longest time, that I would probably read a manual on drying paint by her. So when That Place in Dalhousie wrecked me, I’d been ready for it.
But Julie Berry completely bowled me over with her writing in Lovely War. She’s done an incredible job with this book! Definitely one of the best reads of 2019 for me.
It was totally uncalled me to be emotionally wrecked by two books in the same week! Do make sure to send some love in the way of these two books.
