Five Quotes Friday

Where I share my favorite quotes from the things I have recently read, or am currently reading.

When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist. 

Circe by Madeline Miller

BTW, this is one of the best books I’ve read all year! 

Somehow, we’ll find it. The balance between who we wish to be and who we need to be. But, for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.

Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

I finished the Mistborn trilogy right before Thanksgiving and it was AWESOME.

“How could you know that?” he asked. “Are you a witch?”

“Yes I am…I practice a specialized kind of witchcraft called thinking. It’s a very mysterious power. Quite unknown to the average person.”

Flavia de Luce by Alan Bradley

I didn’t enjoy this book nearly as much as her sass.

What is more heroic than to fight for the honor of the most beautiful woman in the world, against the mightiest city of the East? Perseus cannot say he did so much, nor Jason. Heracles would kill his wife again for a chance to come along. We will master Anatolia all the way to Araby. We will carve ourselves into stories for ages to come.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Once again, Madeline Miller has really wowed me with her greek mythology retelling. I may even go so far as to say she is my favorite author I read this year. (It’s a tough competition though!)

We had known ourselves to be cowards and hypocrites pernicious liars really, and to find this suspicion confirmed was not a relief but a horror.

Severance by Ling Ma

This was a BOTM pick for December and it surprised me. I thought there would be way more zombies in it, but it was still really interesting to read. 

Obviously I have so many book reviews I still need to write. In fact, I feel a little overwhelmed and don’t really know where to get started. Why don’t you comment below and tell me which of these books you are most interested in hearing more about?
