I have been tagged for the third (and fourth) time in the Three Days Three Quotes challenge. So it’s basically another excuse for me to search through all the books I’ve read, find my favourite quotes and use them to, hopefully, convince some of you to give these books a chance if you haven’t read them already.
I was tagged by Sammie at Bookshelves & Biros and Hannah at The Book Llama. Thanks so much for the tag both of you, this is probably my favourite one so really any excuse to take part again is more than welcome.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for three consecutive days.
Nominate three new bloggers each day.
The Book Thief is my all-time favourite historical fiction novel. If you haven’t read it yet why not? The book is full of beautiful quotes and honestly it will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page. If I could recommend one book that I think everyone should read it would definitely be this one.
“Please believe me when I tell you that I picked up each soul that day as if it were newly born. I even kissed a few weary, poisoned cheeks. I listened to their last, gasping cries. Their vanishing words. I watched their love visions and freed them from their fear.
I took them all away, and if ever there was a time I needed distraction, this was it. In complete desolation, I looked at the world above. I watched the sky as it turned from silver to gray to the colour of rain. Even the clouds were trying to get away.
Sometimes I imagined how everything looked above those clouds, knowing without question that the sun was blond, and the endless atmosphere was a giant blue eye.
They were French, they were Jews, and they were you.”
– The Book Thief, Markus Zusak
