TGIF: Deliciously Swoon-Worthy Quotes!

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. Every Friday she posts a new question and it’s a really fun way to discover new blogs.

This weeks question is: Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you’ve experienced in a book?

Wow, this one was super difficult! Because I know the moments I found to be super swoon-worthy, but I don’t always remember the quotes that happened at those moments.  BUT that’s what Goodreads is for, yes? To help me find/remember the exact quote from a specific book!

So, here are some my favorite swoon-worthy quotes from books I’ve read recently (be warned, there may be slight spoilers): Read the rest of this entry »

TGIF: Comfort Reads

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. Every Friday she posts a new question and it’s a really fun way to discover new blogs.

This weeks question is: Comfort Reads. Which books do you go to for comfort & familiarity? Is there a type of book you seek out when you’re needing that extra bit of comfort in your life?

There are a few books that I find myself revisiting time and time again when I am in need of book-shaped comfort. These are the books that get me excited about reading and manage to pull me out of whatever slump or pit of despair I have found myself in.

The best part is that the books that I turn to for comfort range across all genres. Sometimes the comfort I need comes from being able to have a good cry and sometimes I take comfort in reading about others experiencing epic love and happiness.

These are the top three books I find myself returning to time and time again when I am in need of comfort.

The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Harry Potter by JK Rowling

There’s nothing quite like turning to a book when you are in need of comfort. What are some of your comfort reads? And why?
