Booking Through Thursday
What is it about stories that you love? Is it the stories themselves? The people? The plot twists?
What do I love about stories? Uh, everything. You can’t have a story without plot and characters and people driven toward some outcome. If I don’t like a character, I probably wouldn’t put down the book just for that, though if the plot isn’t interesting, that’s where I draw the line. I can deal with an asshole/weak character if there’s a strong plot like a dystopia world, that’s usually interesting enough that I can survive the book while hating the character.
(I’m picturing Fifty Shades of Grey
as the exceptions to my I-can-deal-with-weak-characters,
though I made it through those too, even though the characters were insufferable.)
Harry Potter Moment of the Week
I’m picking my all-time favorite quote for this one:
Light can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light. –Albus Dumbledore
Third Sentence Thursday (pick random page)
Dorian stared at the odd spiral staircase. Celaena had found the legendary catacombs beneath the library. Of course she had.
As if I wasn’t already excited to read this book, I now absolutely cannot wait until chapter 44.
