Hello! It’s time for one final Blogmas Book Quote in 2018. Today’s quote comes from the poem Ring Out, Wild Bells by Alfred Lord Tennyson, which is found in A Vintage Christmas.

Hello! It’s time for another Blogmas Book Quote! Today I’m sharing a lovely little quote from LM Montgomery’s short story, A Christmas Inspiration.  It is one of the stories featured in A Vintage Christmas, and it has been one of my favorites from the entire collection that I’ve read so far.  It is such a sweet story about giving and thinking of others, especially about those who often feel forgotten, and it just warmed… Read More

Hello everyone! Today I’m back with another Blogmas Book Quote! Today’s quote comes from The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.  This quote may be short, but to me, with Christmas only one week away, I feel like this quote is an especially prevalent reminder of just how precious this time of year can be. “Time cannot be packaged and ribboned and left under trees for Christmas morning.  Time can’t be given.  But it can be… Read More

It’s time for another Blogtober Book Quote!  Today I’m back with another Ray Bradbury quote, but this time it’s from his widely famous novel, Fahrenheit 451!  I absolutely love this book, and this particular quote describes the atmosphere of autumn so incredibly well. The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion… Read More

It’s time for another Blogtober Book Quote!  Today’s quote comes from one of my October TBR picks, and that is The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury!  I love how descriptive and atmospheric this quote is.  It just feels so much like Halloween! Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows’ Eve. Everything seemed cut from soft black… Read More

Hello!  Today I am back with another Blogtober Book Quote.  Today I’m sharing Robert Frost’s iconic poem, The Road Not Taken.  There’s just something about this poem that I have always appreciated it.  While I realize this poem isn’t super seasonal, it just reminds me of autumn so much. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down… Read More

Happy New Year’s Eve!  Today, I wanted to share this quote from Rainbow Rowell’s short story, Midnights.  While I read this quote, it reminded me of the new beginnings that a new year brings.  Life is full of adventure and changes, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. “I’m not going anywhere, Noel’ ‘You are,’ he said, squeezing her.’And it’s okay. Just… I need you to take me with you.”   …… Read More
