The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week.
Hello, lovelies! February has come and gone and it is MARCH FIRST. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO TIME?! …anyway, as I said back in January, I’m going to wrap up each month by showing you the quotes I’ve saved in my book memories can.
“The old black dog was back, or maybe it had never gone away. I knew that Louis had always had it snapping at his heels.” – Loc. 572 (ARC)
I like the description of depression as a dog, chasing at you and barking, hope to take a bite of your heels. GR / My review on WatchPlayRead
“People talk about books being an escape…this one feels more like a lifeline.” – Page 153-154
Does this one really need an explanation? GR / my review of TSPOLAFS (Wow) will be up this week
“No, Lila had been running toward something. Something better. And even if she hadn’t reached it yet, she would.” – Loc. 1593 (ARC)
I’m running toward something better. Always. GR / My review
“A boy who had no ideea what would happen in his life, or where it would take him, but one thing he was sure of was this – he would always try and be himself.” – Page 289
I try to always, always be myself. No matter what. No matter where I am or where I’ll go. GR
“Escape is impossible, so why no embrace it?” – Page 277
B and I are trying to escape different things, but the quote works for both of us. Just embrace the challenge. GR / My review
“Q: How many mad scientists does it take to change a light bulb? A: Two. One to hold the bulb, the other one to turn the universe.” – Loc. 14 (ARC)
I just love that. No reason really, other than the idea that someone could turn the universe around them is fascinating and wonderful. GR / My review
“I fall a little bit in love with everyone.” – ARC page 32
Speaks for itself, I think. GR / Review soon!
I also read/listened to the audiobooks for The Funny Thing is… by Ellen DeGeneres and Spirit Animals Book 1: Wild Born by Brandon Mull.
So far in 2015, I have read:
19 books (well, one DNF at 50%) which is 5,608 pages
2 trade paperbacks
36 single issue comics
Favorite book in February: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab / My review
Least favorite book in February: Tear You Apart by Sarah Cross. I had to DNF this one. You can read my review to find out why.
Favorite post to write in February: I think I’ll have to go with my Thursday Thoughts post on mood reading. It seems like a lot of you can relate and feel my pain. I love talking to you guys about bookish (and not-so-bookish) stuff!
A few other updates:
