First of all, thanks to Sarah @ The Bibliophagist for tagging me! I was thinking about doing a post with my favourite posts for a while and wondering how to structure it, so this tag was a lovely surprise. Here we go:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
3. Nominate three new bloggers each day
I’ll start off with one of my favourite book passages of all time, from Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. I read this book years ago but still remember it so vividly, especially Nyx’s line.
“He’s right about one thing,” he said. “This house has many dangers. I cannot save you from most of them.”
I clenched my hand until I felt the bones of his fingers.
Then I let go and forced a smile. “I wasn’t born to be saved.”
That quote is so emblematic of Nyx’s character, who she is and how she sees the world. Being new to YA then, it was great to read about someone like her.
That’s it for the first quote–two more to come!
