March Quotables

I confess that I’ve been in a reading slump. It started in February and has gone downhill. I’ve gone from reading 20-25 books a month to 10-12. But the books I have read were some pretty great books, and I found some wonderful quotes that have resonated with me.

A House With Good Bones, T. Kingfisher
⦁ “The problem with family is that they know where all the levers are that make you move. They’re usually the ones who installed the levers in the first place.”

Sweet Memory, LJ Evans
⦁ “Remember, making mistakes doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy of love and happiness.”

The Next New Syrian Girl, Ream Shukairy
⦁ “When you wait for a dead person, the seconds go by like hours.”
⦁ “We are not our suffering. We are the strength that got us through it all.” (I firmly believe we find our strength through our trials)

The Soulmate, Sally Hepworth
⦁ “It was curious the way wealthy people found other people’s poverty thrilling; often it even morphed into a perverse sort of admiration.”

The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller
⦁ “Do not let what you gained this day be so easily lost.”
⦁ “There is no law that gods must be fair, Achilles. And perhaps it is the greater grief, after all, to be left on earth when another is gone.”

Silver in the Bone, Alexandra Bracken
⦁ “A library was home to those who dreamt of better places…”
⦁ “The problem with siblings, I decided, was that they spent years gathering up all these little knives of observation and learning exactly where to slip them between your bones.” (this one resonates with the quote from A House with Good Bones)
⦁ “…but pain wears many faces-anger, suspicion, fear…”
⦁ “But there comes a time when you have to decide if feeling empty is really any better than the risk of being broken.”

A Fire Endless, Rebecca Ross
⦁ “By you alone I could be undone.”

So many good quotes, right? Wait until next month, I started reading TJ Klune’s upcoming release, In the Lives of Puppets, and I have highlighted *so-many-things*

Have you read anything this month that has stuck with you long after you closed the book?
