A Quote to Begin the Day…

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
                              ~Ralph Ellison

So today’s my birthday. For the first time in my adult life, I am just me on my birthday. Not a student. Not a caregiver. Just me. I am delighted to say I am a Book Reviewer, which was something I could only have dreamed of when I was younger, to be surrounded by books and to be able to talk to others about the amazing worlds book give us. But as far as who I am as a person… well, I am still figuring that out. 

Thanks for all your continued support. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Enjoy!

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!
