Thursday Quotables: A Top-Notch All The Bright Places Quote That Will Put You In A Very Dark Place Where My Dear Buddy Squashhead Will Not Be Able To Rescue You

Hello to all and to all a goodbye. I don’t really mean that, I wanted to try out and see how well my mojo works when I’m pretending to be Santa Claus. Not well, evidently. I have enough amazing people friends like you plus Squashhead to keep the gears in the works and my jam is blogging. So let’s laugh because I was funny and move on because I’m sure you’d rather laugh and then cry for the rest of eternity rather than vice versa which is actually not possible if you are going to cry for eternity. So. Don’t. 


Thursday Quotables is simple to take part in. You simply credit the host Lisa and then list a quote from a book you just finished or are reading? Sound like fun? Why don’t YOU join in?

“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.”

-Jennifer Niven, All The Bright Places

This is so highly perfect. This could mean so much in so many ways. Colors and light and brightness are vivid, artful things, and the beauty of this is so fresh and original, and inspirational–like, I want to love someone like that. Well, Veda. Don’t we all? 🙂

It continues to stun me just how much authors can write beautiful quotes. When I’m writing, I have a trademark of writing sarcastic characters and the most inspirational they are is when they aren’t sarcastic a second away from death. Plus, I just discovered Kaz and Inej don’t happen until Crooked Kingdom. Leigh Bardugo is in for a VERY hard time.

Have you read All The Bright Places? what where your thoughts? AND SIX OF CROWS?

Thursday Quotables: Mushy Clockwork Princess Quotes Where Squashhead Will Supply You With Tissues

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

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 2.27.38 PMI 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.

Thursday Quotables #6

Hello! How are you all today! So I’m doing Thursday Quotables today because it’s been one heck of a long time since I’ve done such a cute little thing like this, and besides, I’ve been reading so many great books, that I feel like I have to do this now. And I’m aware that it is Friday, but, who cares, it’s one day, and I’m fairly sure it’s still applicable. It’s just the remaining appropriateness of posting it today that I didn’t simply post: Quotables #6.

Thursday Quotables is a really easy weekly meme over here on Bookzillan Society. It’s super simple! You just credit the host, Lisa , and list a quote from whatever book you’re reading or have read and would like to share about, and then, of course, remember to check out other’s Thursday Quotables!!

“It’s too late,” she said.
“Don’t say that.” His voice was half a whisper. “I love you, Tessa. I love you.”

-Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince, Infernal Devices #2

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 2.27.38 PM

I love this darned quote so much, because right after I found out about Will’s curse, there was suddenly a perfectly reasonable excuse for everything he does that’s awfully rude or conceited. And now I feel so hazy about Jem because, the fact that he’s going to die anyway, is just depressing. And I don’t know who the hell I want Tessa to end up with!! She’s so perfect with Jem, but she’s so–so awesome with Will. Like, I don’t even know how you can say it using English, but *insert crazy emojis* I’m sort of shriveling up and turning into a cabbage myself. AGH. I cannot do this. Will or Jem? = Asking me to die inside.

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 2.27.38 PM

Alright! So, since I’m already dying inside because Jem is dying and because of Will’s curse and the revelation about Tessa’s parenthood–golly, that’s pretty much contradicting the very existence of a Shadowhunter, to mate with a demon. Like, you go to stab it, but then you end up loving the weird scaly alien demon thing? Um, I know you don’t judge by appearance, but I usually don’t love things with tails. 

Have you read Clockwork Prince? have you read the Infernal Devices? have you read any of Cassie Clare’s books and what is your opinion of them? if not, would you be interested to? what’s one of YOUR favorite book quotes of all time?

“Is standing by the window muttering about blood something he does all the time?” asked Simon. “No,” Jace said. “Sometimes he sits on the couch and does it.” 

~City of Ashes, Book 2 of The Mortal Instruments, Cassandra Clare

Yes, this was a Jace quote! I know, another one! And I know, I’m still on this book; I haven’t had the most time to read.




Let me know! Let’s talk!
