Here are some of my favourite quotes from some of my favourite books!
Touch by Claire North.
“My skin is wild in the wind
my breath is restless shock
and I am
woman, thick gloves woolly against the cold
man in yellow shoes who lost his way
I am the stranger who gave you the white flowers she carried
in her hand
the face you forget as it turned away
I am beautiful
until I see that she is more beautiful than me
and he more beautiful again
so beautiful, and never enough
I am the woman who stood on your foot on the train
jostled you in the queue
asked you for the time
I am the ancient man who has forgotten his name
the tired old woman who wished to be someone else.
I am no one.
I am Kepler.
I am love.
I am you.”
This is my favourite quote from Touch and is the last page of the book. Not only does it read like a piece of poetry it also manages to entirely sum up the meaning of the story. North breaks the wall between the reader and the page and makes you question whether you really are Kepler or Kepler really is you.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
“You’re a storyteller. Dream up something wild and improbable,” she pleaded. “Something beautiful and full of monsters.”
“Beautiful and full of monsters?”
“All the best stories are.”
This quote is GUH! Strange the Dreamer is beautiful, it is full of Monsters.
I hope you liked these quotes!
Keep on reading!
