Thursday Quotables: Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day


Welcome 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!

Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by Seanan McGuire
(published 2017)

This novella about ghosts and time includes some simply stellar writing:

Patty died far away, in the big city where Jenna begged her not to go, the victim of the sadness that grew in her own body, in her own bones, until she picked up a knife as sharp as the end of the world.

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

  1. That is really a great quote and now I have to read this book! Thanks for bringing this book to our attention. I doubt if I’ll find anything near as worthy in the book I’m presently reading – just a routine thriller.

    • I finished it yesterday, and will write something up about it this weekend. Definitely worth reading if you enjoy hauntings and ghosts! (I really enjoyed it.)
