“It gets worse,” he chuckled. “Wait until she says, ‘I do.’ Savor the moment, old man. There’s nothing like it.”

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!
“Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.”
What are some of your favorite Children/YA Books?
“Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once.”
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!
“The thing about fictional characters from literature is that they completely speak to what makes people human.”
I wonder if this is what allows us, the readers, to escape so vividly into a character’s world… What do you think?
“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.”
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!
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!
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
