Books Best Friend |Candle Edition

I have decided to do a series on my blog dedicated to where to find those all amazing things that book lovers need in their life or things based on books that we love.

This post is another one for those amazing bookish themed objects that can be found all over my apartment and are always lit while I read!

(Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.)

 

“When I finished all he said was, ‘Great, thanks,’ and then turned to my parents and asked if I’d ‘been to see anyone.'”

– Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

I am not very far into this book yet, but already it is so intriguing and is incorporating a little of the unreliable narrator that makes any story more appealing. This line is in regards to Jacob and what he saw in the woods.

“When I get this door open, you’re dead, Jean!”

– Scott Lynch, Red Seas Under Red Skies

I absolutely love the relationship between Locke and Jean! One of the best friendships in a book I have ever read about. They have that sarcasm and banter between them that just adds more to the story and definitely supplies some great entertainment!

“Fifth hand is to the ladies.”

– Scott Lynch, Red Seas Under Red Skies

I am only a little bit into the book, but this is from the opening scenes of the book. Locke and Jean are doing what they do best, conning people.

“He had a large pink face, not much neck, small, watery blue eyes, and thick blond hair that lay smoothly on his thick, fat head.”

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

I am only at the beginning of the book. It is my first time reading it but I already love it so much, which I knew I would! This quote is describing Dudley. I feel like the description sets up the feelings towards Dudley for the rest of the series.

” ‘You girls saw something pretty frightening yesterday, didn’t you?’Mr. Wolf sets down the snow globe and picks up a picture frame holding a photo of two blond children- probably Mrs. Malone’s kids.”

Hexed, Michelle Krys

Indigo and Paige had witness something and were brought into the principals office for questioning. This is the point in the book that Indigo starts to learn things she didn’t know about her life.
