Hey guys! So I’ve been toying with the idea of every few days or so posting a quote from the book I’m currently reading (or a favorite quote from a book I’ve already read). I will post the quote and then explain why I like it and we can discuss in the comments. What do you guys think of this idea (and the title for the post?). GIVE ME ALL THE FEEDBACK! 🙂
I’m currently reading Cammie McGovern’s Say What You Will, which I’m enjoying. When I read this quote, I really liked it right away. Here it is:
Freakishness could happen to anyone at any time. -Page 13
If you don’t know, this book is about a girl, Amy, who has Cerebral Palsy, and a boy, Matthew, who has OCD. Yes, each of them have their own problems, but I think this book is really trying to tell you that your problems don’t always have to be so obvious (like Amy’s). Anyone could have problems or be a little strange and you might not know it. Like Matthew (well, maybe not quite as intense), you could be afraid of a lot of things but no one will know that by looking at you. I’ve mentioned it before on the blog, but I’m going through some stuff (wow, that is a generalization, but again, not the place to go into that “stuff”), and this quote sort of just struck home…I guess? I thought it was so true, and it reminded me a little of a quote from the movie Psycho: “We all go a little mad sometimes.”
Have you read this book? Did you like this quote? What do you think about it?

I’m actually reading this book right now, too! It was recommended during last week’s TeaTime with EpicReads, so I decided to give it a try…and I really like it! What part are you up to? 🙂
I like the idea of sharing book quotes that make you think while reading. Just as long as it doesn’t spoil the book. True, we all become a little freakish at times. Often it’s how others view us. Sounds like an interesting book.
Oh, of course! I’d never spoil the book for someone. I don’t even really do that in my reviews, and if I do, I always say it might be a spoiler. I just wanted to share quotes that meant something to me or made me think.
Yes! I agree: a lot of the time it is how other people see us.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I don’t typically read these kinds of books. I have enough problems in my real life, I want my book life to be more fantastical. I’m sorry for your ‘stuff’. I hope it all turns out okay. *virtual hug*
🙂 Thanks for the hug!
I like these types of books mostly because it reminds me that my problems could be worse. Or to remind me that everyone has problems whether you see it or not.
Obviously, I’m all for it! 😀
This quote speaks to me as well, I have a lot of anxiety about certain things, but most people don’t know that because A) you can’t see it, B) I usually force myself to work through it, and C) I don’t talk about much (why is it easier to type about it?).
Same here. It is so much easier to type, but even then it’s sometimes hard. I really liked this quote. Everyone’s a little bit of a freak. Ha.
BTW, my Maze Runner review is up – with a few quotes, of course! 🙂
Woo! Heading to check it out now!
I think book quotes are cool. I don’t post any on my page, but I may start.
I love quotes too! You should. It seems a lot of people like them. 🙂 Feel free to use the Quote Quoted format, just link back to me! 😀
You know I LOVE book quotes. I post mine as a weekly round-up on Fridays and include them within book reviews, but I find myself searching them out all the time, so I’m all for this idea.
I like to include a couple in book reviews too, but I thought this would be a fun way to showcase some. I really love book quotes too.
Yay! I’m glad you like the idea. 🙂
