Welcome yet another Memorable Monday! This meme is all about sharing a quote that you've chosen yourself, a quote that for one reason or another spoke to you.
My quote this week is from Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, the second installment in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. I cannot believe how long I've waited to pick up this one. I very much enjoyed Shiver, but after a time I wasn't really sure if I loved it as much as I initially thought I did. Or if my love was affected by all the buzz by other bloggers and that it had made me blind to the weaknesses in the story. Well I must be a complete idiot for doubting my initial thoughts or Linger is even better than Shiver. Cause' let me tell you that this is all good. The quote I've chose today, I feel, says a lot about Maggie's writing skills. To describe a person like that takes skills I say, Maggie Stiefvater sure knows how to show instead of telling.
The door opened, revealing another Labrador, this one very much alive, and a twenty-something girl with a red bandanna tied around her head. She was so interesting-looking and unpretty that she actually traveled through ugly to someplace on the other side that was almost as good as pretty: huge, beaked nose, sleepy-looking dark brown eyes, and sharp cheekbones. Her black hair was pulled up in a half a-dozen interconnected braids coiled on top of her head, like a Mediterranean Princess Leia.
I would love for you to join me with a Memorable Monday quote(or quotes)post of your own.
