Written In My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
(published 2014)

My book club is getting starting with a group re-read of book #8 in the Outlander series — but already, just a few chapters in, I’m finding little bits and pieces that amuse the heck out of me, like this one:

Fraser stood quite still for a moment, breathing slowly and regarding Woodbine as a tiger might regard a hedgehog: yes, he could eat it, but would the inconvenience of swallowing be worth it?

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 (http://www.bookshelffantasies.com), 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!

  1. Haha, I love that quote! I’m looking forward to watching more of the TV series and eventually finishing off Outlander (the first novel) – I just need to work up the courage, after getting ‘terrible scene’ spoilers that scare me from friends!
