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. 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.
The Steep & Thorny Way by Cat Winters
I’m *this close* to the end of The Steep & Thorny Way, and I’m loving it! If only the world would go away for a few hours, I might actually finish today. If you think a Hamlet retelling set in 1920s rural Oregon sounds like an unlikely concept… well, you have no idea how well it works!
“Do you hope to get married someday?” he asked.
“As long as I don’t fall in love with a man the wrong color.”
He exhaled a steady stream of air through his nostrils. “I think love and wrong are two deeply unrelated words that should never be thrown into the same sentence together. Like dessert and broccoli.”
What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
