Thursday Quotables: In honor of the 4th of July


Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.ย  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

NEW! Thursday Quotables is now using a Linky tool! Be sure to add your link if you have a Thursday Quotables post to share.

ABOSAA quote

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon
(published 2006 )

I’ve highlighted this quote before, but the timing couldn’t be better for a repeat!

I’m re-reading A Breath of Snow and Ashes with my book group, and we just happened to arrive at this particular chapter this week, set in May 1775, as the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence are getting more and more intense.

Perfect for this 4th of July holiday week!

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

If you’d like to participate in Thursday Quotables, it’s really simple:

  • Write a Thursday Quotables post on your blog. Try to pick something from whatever you’re reading now. And please be sure to include a link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your post (, if you’d be so kind!
  • Click on the linky button (look for the cute froggie face) below to add your link.
  • After you link up, I’d love it if you’d leave a comment about my quote for this week.
  • Be sure to visit other linked blogs to view their Thursday Quotables, and have fun!
