A Quote to Begin Your Day…

“It gets worse,” he chuckled. “Wait until she says, ‘I do.’ Savor the moment, old man. There’s nothing like it.”
~Trevor B. to Stephan C., Christmas Wish

 

Today, I chose a character quote from the book I reviewed yesterday. (Click here, to read the review.) I love this quote because it shows the many loveable sides of the various relationships between the main characters.

 

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once.”

                                  ~Stephen King

How much truer can this quote get? An amazing book draws you in, keeps you guessing and forces you to live in that world! Just a few of the authors whose books have kept me searcing for their secrets up until the very end: Dan Brown, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, and the duo, Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. I thrive on hunting down the clues and trying to guess the outcomes, before the characters figure it all out. Very few authors have been able to write books that continue the suspense through the last few pages and I do a dance each time I discover a new “Clue Master.” (Remember, Nancy Drew was one of the first series that I read as a young child, and yes, I may have become a bit obsessed with solving “mysteries”!)

Tell me in the comments below who are some of your favorite authors that keep you on your toes!

Have a wonderful day!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“The thing about fictional characters from literature is that they completely speak to what makes people human.”
       ~Kiera Knightly

I wonder if this is what allows us, the readers, to escape so vividly into a character’s world… What do you think?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin Your Day…

“I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them.”
   ~Emma Thompson

I am very grateful for certain titles that have changed my life. I have to agree with her, I can remember specific times that I found a book, or was given a book and the joy that I gained from reading it. What’s the last book that you read during a time of need?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
~Oscar Wilde

 

Continuing with the theme from yesterday, I have re-read To Kill a Mockingbird numerous times. I love re-reading books. I have an entire shelf dedicated to books that I have re-read so much that I can pick up a book and immediately go to my favorite passages, for a quick pick-me-up. However, I have met several people that wish to only read a book once and then move on.

What about all of you…do you enjoy re-reading books? If so, which stories top your list?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

~Harper Lee

 

Did you hear the news??? Author Harper Lee will be publishing a new book this summer. It seems this book was her original idea for a story, but due to suggestions she changed the POV and age of the main characters to create one of my absolute favorite books: To Kill a Mockingbird! This story will about an adult woman named Scout who travels to her hometown to visit her father. I am so excited!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see this “new” book. I feel like even though I have read To Kill a Mockingbird a dozen times, I should re-read it again this summer.

How many of you are as excited as I am about this news? Who was your favorite character from To Kill a Mockingbird?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
~Edith Sitwell

 

It has been a bitter cold week for much of the United States. I actually dug out my scarves and gloves that I hadn’t seen in close to four years! I saw this quote and it reminded me of the peaceful, snowy nights. For me, snow always meant magic was happening. It was some rare, beautiful and serene. To experience such cold temps this week without any snow, seemed wrong. However the cold gave many a great excuse to stay indoors, snuggled up under a blanket and reading a good book! (As if we ever really need another excuse to read!)

Stay safe and warm during this winter day!

Enjoy!

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

Happy New Year everyone! Four years ago today, I packed up my boys and we hit the road to begin our new life in South Carolina. It has been an interesting four years, but I am grateful for all of them. I have high hopes for a very happy 2015 for us all!

Thank you again for all of your continued support.

Cheers to 2015!
