I stumbled across this 30 day book challenge by The Chronicles of Radiya and decided to give it a try. Hopefully it will lead to 30 consecutive days of blogging that liven up the blog a bit and give us a chance to get to know each other a little better.
Day 17: Favourite Quote From A Book
I have too many favourite quotes to list, so I’m going to cheat a bit and list my favourites from a book that I read recently and absolutely adored:
“Holding Eleanor’s hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive. As soon as he touched her, he wondered how he’d gone this long without doing it. He rubbed his thumb through her palm and up her fingers, and was aware of her every breath.”
“He made her feel like more than the sum of her parts.”
“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
“You can be Han Solo,” he said, kissing her throat. “And I’ll be Boba Fett. I’ll cross the sky for you.”
I could keep going with the cute quotes all night… but I’ll stop here and then tell you that you should definitely read Eleanor & Park. Their relationship is absolutely adorable, and it gave me warm, fuzzy feelings and made my heart smile.
