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.
Roses and Rot by Kat Howard
The world of fairy tales creeps into this story of two sisters at an elite artists’ retreat:
But there is another thing about midnight. It is when illusions break. When you can see the truth beneath them, if you are looking. There is always a crack in the illusion, a gap in the perfection, even if it is only visible with the ticking of a clock.
Midnight is when you look, if there is a truth you need to see. If you are brave enough to bear what you witness.
For just a moment, the smoke dissipates, the mirrors shatter, and the glamour is gone. All that’s left is the truth of the story, the truth in your heart, your darkest secret.
A glass shoe, abandoned on the stairs.
Once upon a time.
What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
