 “You know that feeling,” she [Tessa] said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”

― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

Because third time’s the charm and it’s day three, I’ll have it as an excuse to share three quotes all from the same book.  Continue reading “3 Days, 3 Quotes: The True Worth of Stories”

3 Days, 3 Quotes: The Wraith’s Arrow

One word for this: Loophole.

I was talking about this when I was doing this tag the first time around and I remember saying in the day three post: if somebody tagged me again, I would have no choice but to do it again… right?  Continue reading “3 Days, 3 Quotes: The Wraith’s Arrow”

3 Days, 3 Quotes: More Than Just Puns

3 Days, 3 Quotes: As Multifaceted as the Night

I wonder about the significance of the number three… Why not make it seven? Or why not make it a weekly tag? Or maybe that’s just too much to hope for and I will probably have run out of people to tag if that happened. But still – kudos to the one who created this tag! There’s something to be said about short and sweet things. So simple and yet so fun! Continue reading “3 Days, 3 Quotes: As Multifaceted as the Night”

Your Highness—

It has come to my attention that your library isn’t a library, but rather a personal collection for only you and your esteemed father to enjoy. As many of your million books seem to be present and underused, I must beg you to grant me permission to borrow a few so that they might receive the attention they deserve. Since I am deprived of company and entertainment, this act of kindness is the least someone of your importance could deign to bestow upon a lowly, miserable wretch such as I.

Yours most truly,
Celaena Sardothien

(by Sleeping At Last)

The years wore on and changed my heart,
The leading role for a smaller part.

Now I bear little resemblance to the king I once was.
I bear little resemblance to the king I could become.

I set out to rule the world
With only a paper shield and a wooden sword.

When words leave offmusic begins.” – Heinrich Heine

“We are going to be a dread triumvirate. That means thrice the adventure.” 

“Warlocks lived forever, which meant they saw the intimate, terrible cycle of birth, life and death over and over again. It also meant that they had all been witness to literally millions of failed relationships.”

The Quote Hoarder: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

“Perhaps that is because you mistake death for justice, and that they are not the same thing at all.”

“And I would find a way to serve both my god and my heart. Surely He does not give us hearts so we may spend our lives ignoring them.

via TQH: Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassins, #1) by Robin LaFevers
