3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge – Day 1

Door Kwante werd ik getagd voor deze uitdaging en hoewel ik er niet meteen mee begon, is hij er dan toch! De 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge zie ik de laatste tijd op veel blogs voorbij komen en ik vind het dan ook leuk dat ik hem zelf ook mag gaan doen! De bedoeling is dat je drie dagen achter elkaar drie van je favoriete bookquotes post. Zoals ik veel bloggers heb zien doen ga ik niet elke dag één quote plaatsen, want dat vond ik iets te weinig haha. Ik speel ook vals en ik leg je straks uit hoe!

Oké. Ik vond drie quotes in drie dagen een beetje te weinig voor een blogpost, dus heb ik besloten om elke dag één van mijn favoriete boeken(series) te kiezen en daaruit de allermooiste quotes te zoeken. Hiervoor is Goodreads natuurlijk ideaal, want daar kan je ze gewoon terugvinden zonder eindeloos in je boeken te gaan terugzoeken.

Vandaag bijt ik het spits af met ik denk mijn favoriete serie die ik tot nu toe gelezen heb: de Touching Juliette serie! De schrijfstijl van Tahereh Mafi is geweldig mooi en ik weet dan ook zeker dat ik een paar prachtige quotes voor jullie kan vinden.

Shatter Me / Vrees Me 

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.”

“The moon is a loyal companion.

It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

Destroy Me / Verwoest Me

“And I’ve fallen.

So hard.

I’ve hit the ground. Gone right through it. Never in my life have I felt this. Nothing like this. I’ve felt shame and cowardice, weakness and strength. I’ve known terror and indifference, self-hate and general disgust. I’ve seen things that cannot be unseen.

And yet I’ve known nothing like this terrible, horrible, paralyzing feeling. I feel crippled. Desperate and out of control. And it keeps getting worse. Every day I feel sick. Empty and somehow aching.

Love is a heartless bastard.”

Unravel Me / Breek Me 

“Books are easily destroyed. But words will live as long as people can remember them.”

“I want so many things,” he whispers. “I want your mind. Your strength. I want to be worth your time.” His fingers graze the hem of my top and he says “I want this up.” He tugs on the waist of my pants and says “I want these down.” He touches the tips of his fingers to the sides of my body and says, “I want to feel your skin on fire. I want to feel your heart racing next to mine and I want to know it’s racing because of me, because you want me. Because you never,” he says, he breathes, “never want me to stop. I want every second. Every inch of you. I want all of it.”

I’m falling.
I’m falling apart and into his heart and I’m a disaster.”

Ignite Me / Vertrouw Me 

“Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.
No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”

“And we are quotation marks, inverted and upside down, clinging to one another at the end of this life sentence. Trapped by lives we did not choose.”

Image result for “It's the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.”
