It’s been such a long time since I’ve ever taken part in any weekly features, and this is one of a few that jumped out of me. It seemed very simple, quick and easy, but still a lot of fun. Thursday Quotables is a weekly feature ran by Bookshelf Fantasies, which includes highlighting an amazing quote, line, or passage that you come across during your reading each week.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.
(Published 27th August 2013)
Exactly a year ago I read this book, but couldn’t get into the third book after finishing this one. So this is actually a re-read, so I’m going to do this as a lucky dip, flicker the pages, stop and choose a passage!
“And then the music exploded around them, and Chaol took her with it, spinning her so that her cloak fanned out around her. Each step was flawless, lethal, like that first time they’d sparred together so many months ago. She knew his every move and he knew hers, as though they’d been dancing this waltz all their lives. Faster, never faltering, never breaking her stare.
The rest of the world quieted into nothing. In that moment, after ten long years, Celaena looked at Chaol and realized she was home.”
This is probably one of my most favourite scenes in the second book of the Throne of Glass series. It’s so beautifully written, and it captures your heart; especially after connecting with these characters on such an emotional level, after everything they have this moment where they are free.
What quotes made your week all the more worth it?
