Is anyone else feeling like the Summer is taking a really long time to get here? Well I am and because of that I was reminded of some of the quotes from books I’ve loved and read during the months of summer.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
If you know me then you’ve probably heard me rave about Carry On by Rainbow Rowell before. It is one of my favourite books for so many reasons and she is one of my favourite authors for so many reasons (I was even lucky enough to meet her and get my copy signed to me!?). I could very easily go on forever about this book, but I won’t, I’ll just sum it up in my favourite quote from it instead:
“What you are is a fucking tragedy, Simon Snow. You literally couldn’t be a bigger mess.”
He tries to kiss me, but I pull back- “And you like that?”
“I love it.” He says
“Because we match.”
Paper Towns by John Green
A cult classic in YA, revered and hated by book bloggers around the world, Paper Towns reminds me so much of being a teenager which is weird because I still am one. If you somehow still haven’t read this you should just so you can form a polarising opinion on it and agree with me or think i’m a mad man for actually liking this story. My favourite quote is this one, its makes me feel small and overwhelmed which I love:
“You can see how fake it all is. It’s not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It’s a paper town. I mean, look at it, Q: look at all those culs-de-sac, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm.”
Seriously, please do read both these books you hopefully won’t regret it?
Keep on reading
And thanks again Beth.
