QUOTE: Melina Marchetta

"It happened on the Jellicoe Road. The prettiest road I’d ever seen, where trees made breezy canopies like a tunnel to Shangri-La."   ~ Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta I absolutely adore this quote. It appears both at the beginning and end of Melina Marchetta's novel Jellicoe Road, and it never fails to give me a feeling of peace. …

QUOTE: V.E. Schwab

"The moments that define lives aren't always obvious. They don't always scream LEDGE, and nine times out of ten there's no rope to duck under, no line to cross, no blood pact, no official letter on fancy paper.

Most of the time this works out great (we trust them for a reason!) although occasionally it can lead unrealistically high expectations and consequential disappointment. Either way, I'm sure that many of us bookish …
