Quote Quoted: Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

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! 🙂Say What You Will

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?

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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*

  4. 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?).

  5. 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.
