Beautiful Quotes #86 / Summer Days and Summer Nights

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Before I start I just to say I’m really excited at the moment as this blog is undergoing some changes! I’ve had ideas for a remodel for a while now, and with the help of my friend Courtney I’ve finally managed to get them underway. I’m loving the new look, but I’m not done yet so keep an eye out for more to come 🙂

On to today’s beautiful quote, and I’ve gone for a summer-themed book. It’s still very warm here in the UK and I thought I’d reflect that by going for Summer Days and Summer Nights. This book is a beautiful collection of short stories by different authors, and I’d definitely recommend it for a good summer read!

“Probably falling in love is always a little like that: You discover that one other person who understands what no one else seems to, which is that the world is broken and can never, ever be fixed. You can stop pretending, at least for a little while. You can both admit it, if only to each other.”

This quote is from the last story of this collection, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things by Lev Grossman.

Beautiful Quotes #85 / A Court of Thorns and Roses

I’m so excited to say I’m really enjoying fantasy at the moment! As well as starting Game of Thrones (I’m addicted!), I’m also reading The Selection for the first time, even though I’ve had the series for well over a year now. I’d really like to carry on reading fantasy after this, and maybe that fantasy should be the next book in this series!

Talking of The Selection, my review for the first book will be posted tomorrow, so look out for that.

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

“I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.”

Beautiful Quotes #84 / The Square Root of Summer

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Well, that vow I made to blog more in June is just going right out of the window! I wish I could say it’s going to improve, but these last few weeks of college are going to be incredibly busy for me. But when July comes I’ll finally have more time again and I’ll be able to blog and read more!

Talking about reading, I’m going to be discussing my half-year reading progress later in the week, and it’s not looking good at the moment 😦 But all that aside, let’s talk about today’s post, and this is inspired by the season. I’m going to be talking about my favourite summer reads on Wednesday, and I wanted to talk about this beautiful story as a little pre-post.

Last summer, Gottie’s life fell apart. Her beloved grandfather Grey died and Jason left her – the boy to whom she lost her virginity (and her heart) – and he wouldn’t even hold her hand at the funeral! This summer, still reeling from twin heartbreaks, Gottie is lost and alone and burying herself in equations. Until, after five years absence, Thomas comes home: former boy next door. Former best friend. Former everything. And as life turns upside down again she starts to experience strange blips in time – back to last summer, back to what she should have seen then…
During one long, hazy summer, Gottie navigates grief, world-stopping kisses and rips in the space-time continuum, as she tries to reconcile her first heartbreak with her last.

“This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It’s a little bit like a black hole. It’s a little bit like infinity.”

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to say I’ve finished Obsidio (review coming tomorrow) and I’m so happy about my next read. I received my copy of Legendary and I’m over the moon to say I got the copy I wanted. Look out for a photo of it soon on my Instagram!

I’ve just started and the writing is already so beautiful – it’s making me reflect on the beautiful nature and quotes from Caraval.

Beautiful Quotes #82 / The Raven Boys

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Welcome to another Beautiful Quotes post (if I manage to stay awake long enough to finish it). It’s been an incredibly busy weekend and one with a lack of reading, and it’s going to carry on being busy for a while! But life is really good, and I do think I’ll be able to read a little more soon.

I have a lot of books on my TBR, and I’m currently reading Obsidio. After that, I might try All the Crooked Saints, which you can see from my last Stacking the Shelves post that Pete gave me! After then, maybe it’ll be back to finish The Raven Cycle? Finally?

Beautiful Quotes #81 / Six of Crows

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hello my lovely readers! I’m currently reading Crooked Kingdom and I’m so happy! When I read Six of Crows I did enjoy it, but I wasn’t a fantasy reader at the time. At all. But I do feel like Harry Potter opened a new gateway for me and has given me a new understanding and love for the genre, and I’m enjoying fantasy a lot more now!

So I thought I’d spend this post celebrating the gorgeous Six of Crows and this duology!

I’m continuing to build the hype for some new spring releases including Save the Date by Morgan Matson and I can’t wait! I started my love for YA reading Morgan Matson books and I’ve grown a lot as they’ve been released. Now I’ve finished Harry Potter (more about that tomorrow), I’m finding it hard to decide on my next books to read and I really want some spring/summery ones!

Hmm…I feel a Morgan Matson re-read coming on…
