3 Day Quote Challenge –Day Three

Closet Library

So this is day three of the three day quote challenge (can I say how glad I am to get this out of the way, so stressful), which I was nominated for by Wendy Vickers Black. Her blog is absolutely hilarious and heartfelt, you’ve simply got to check it out, it is one of my favorites. And probably this is another surprising quote, because when it comes to quotes in books, they don’t always stand alone, it is all the context and the emotions in the book that really give it meaning.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Publish a quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog.  The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie, or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavor.

My quote for day one:

“I awoke in the closet again… I reached over and touched the closet wall to remind myself the dream was over. The sleek paint felt cold to my fingers. Since I made such frequent visits here, maybe I should just move in. Install a toilet, a sink, build myself a nest…heh.”  Ilona Andrews, Gunmetal Magic

I love this book, I love this series, and I love this quote. So fun facts about this book, it features a heroine who isn’t the central one of the series, and I love when authors manage to get me to care about more than just the main hero and heroine in a series. And of course it is well known that I adore this series. But what really gets me on this particular quote is that this is a strong female character. She is a badass, a tough shifter who is an expert marksman and takes no guff off anyone. And she still winds up hiding in the closet sometimes, but better yet, it doesn’t detract from her kickass personality at all. And I don’t know about anyone else, but I need characters like that.

My nominees for day two:

  • Willfull at A Willfull Woman… Who has wonderful taste in books and is one of the most ethical readers I know.
  • Books Are My Reality Who has a quirky sense of fun and no shame (rightfully so) about anything she likes to read.
  • And Monica over at Coffee and Bookaholics who posts interesting things as well as gorgeous pictures on top of her lovely book reviews.

Be sure to check them out, they are all blogs worth devoting some time to.

3 Day Quote Challenge –Day Two

Perdition

So this is day two of the three day quote challenge which I was nominated for by Wendy Vickers Black. Her blog is absolutely hilarious and heartfelt, you’ve simply got to check it out, it is one of my favorites. And I think you might be surprised by this quote.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Publish a quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog.  The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie, or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavor.

My quote for day one:

“Hell is our own memories, our bad choices.” – Ann Aguirre, Perdition

This just resonated with me, as did the entire series. Who says genre fiction can’t also be literary fiction? Certainly not Ann Aguirre. I highly recommend it, and if I were bolder and less afraid, I’d nominate her to see what quotes she came up with.

My nominees for day two:

All great and interesting blogs hosted by individuals who are passionate about books! Seriously, are there any better types of people to get to know?

3 Day Quote Challenge –Day One

Beautiful Libraries

So I have been nominated for the three day quote challenge by the evil woman Wendy Vickers Black. Her blog is absolutely hilarious and heartfelt, you’ve simply got to check it out, it is one of my favorites. Of course she is still an evil harpy because the fact that I have read so much DOES mean I have a lot of great quotes, too many for a measly 3 day challenge (seriously though, no one nominate me for a 100 quote challenge, I’d die). I had to delay a bit because where does someone even start on something like this.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Publish a quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog.  The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie, or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavor.

My quote for day one:

“I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.” – Emilia Fox

My nominees for day one:

  • Nervous Nell Justice over at One Book Two Book – Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (in other words, SPOILERS!) and i can so relate.
  • Anna over at Herding Cats and Burning Soup who is an excellent book blogger, a lover of cats, and -for good or for ill- one of the amazing ladies who has nudged me more into the social side of book blogging.
  • And R.S.A. Garcia who has written Lex Talionis, a book I really enjoyed, and who always posts some of the most interesting things on her blog.

All very excellent blogs that I think you’ll enjoy and that i am curious what quotes they’ll come up with, so everyone should stop and check them out!
