Yes Thursday Quotables. But this is because I am on Clockwork Princess and I am dying inside. I am not even joking. I feel my pitiful shreds of self-control slipping away when I’m out in the day and I’m just like, pray I don’t cry, because of course that’s really weird and I only cry and throw books when I’m in my room. I do not do it in public transportation. That’s just weird. And also I want to hold off, deos knows I do.
But I digress. I will do this so I can allow my pathetic self to cry right now here with you. I will not cry buckets of tears. I will simply soak the world in salt waters since my father Poseidon, will let me, rather than me cry out my life. I do not want to finish Clockwork Princess. No. Absolutely not, I do not want the series to end, and I will march up to Cassie Clare’s house, armed, I tell you, and demand her right another book.
Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme over here. You simply credit the host, Lisa and then you insert said quote from whatever book you’ve read, or are reading! Sounds like fun? Why don’t YOU try it?
“You endure what is unbearable, and you bear it. That is all.”
-Clockwork Princess, Cassandra Clare, TID #3
I KNOW YOU NEED MY MUNCHKIN SQUASHHEAD TO HAND YOU SOME TISSUES NOW. HERE YOU GO MY LOVES. *Squashhead hands you a tissue through the cyberspace* I love this quote so freaking much because of all its reality. I’ve been through so many unthinkable, hurtful experiences which, in some cases, compared to another’s problems, will seem the tiniest worries of the world, but we are each to our own. This is so true. You simply have to bear even the most unbearable, unfathomable experiences. It is a part of life, for the God above and in us all will balance our life with good and bad. And if you need some uplifting, just listen to Amsterdam by Imagine Dragons. It sounds so much like something Day would have sang…and my heart hurts.
“Your time will come, if you wait for it, if you wait for it, it’s hard, believe me I’ve tried…”
I would have done the “life is a book” one but I am doing it next week for I feel it will make more sense if I have finished the book…
Um. I am at the part where Will just left Jem on his deathbed after confessing his love for Tessa. Ugh, this is so squishy. I hated it when Tessa crushed Will after five dreadful years, and I hated it now when Will had to admit it and say Tessa loved only Jem and Jem was relieved. I thought better of Jem. But I am broken. These lovely, brilliant parabatai just left each other. How do I live? I love Jem and Will. I love parabatai. Jem and Will are perfect and their intense, true love for each other is so heartbreaking and flawless and real. Tessa should have never come in the middle of them. And so Will has rode off to find Tessa and she’s found out Mrs. Black’s (or was it Dark, I’m always confused between the two) true form and then she escaped. BAH CONTINUE PLEASE I WANT TO READ AND DIE AND SOB.
I don’t know if I’m shipping Gabriel and Cecily so much. I just don’t like either of them very much. Sure, Cecily is great little sister, but I don’t know anything the heck about her. Besides the fact she looks like Will. And Gabriel is such a conceited, arrogant little foolish worm (get it, Lightwood, or worm, reference 😀 ) that I don’t want him with Cecily.
And SOPHIE AND GIDEON. They are perfection. For a girl who is so pretty but scarred, in a world so full of wicked, to find such true love. It might have been some sort of insta-love, but this case is beautiful. I feel Gideon in insta-love with not the scarred Sophie, but the true beautiful girl beneath the scars. It’s all so lovely, and hopeful, and promising. It rethinks everything in a new light. And Sophie deserves it. I love Sophie so much.
I felt so much like I was slipping into my review mode over there. I think I’ll use that excerpt in a Sunday Rantings, about how I went from ‘dread to sob to choke to complain’. But yes, Sophie and Gideon are perfect, don’t you think?? And Gabriel and Cecily are completely eh and I have no clue what the hell I’m supposed to think or do about this love triangle because it is so real and beautiful and perfect and rich that I cannot fathom any pair but all three of them matched up interchangeably. Will and Jem are wonderful, Will and Tessa portray true realism in love, and Jem and Tessa are the sweetest, kindest, most whole-heartedly, finely constructed loves I’ve ever seen in my life.
Have you read Clockwork Princess? TID? what did you think of it? Jem or Will? and is Sophie with Gideon not absolutely flawless? and is the English dialect, sanctum fumat, rubbing off on you too? I feel so elegant now when I’m speaking, like I’m reaching purposefully for an English eloquence. are you flipping loving every single book, part, and word like I am? one small thing though, did any of you find the part where Will is going to Cadair Idris a bit dragging and slow and boring? pray this ending does not shatter me. and what is YOUR favorite quote from TID altogether? I think I’ll be doing a full TID quotes feature post just because we all need it desperately.
