I had been tossing this idea around for the past year or so (after having a conversation in my comments on a post where I had been mentioning my quote notebook and how I keep track of quotes from what I read) but I’m super lazy and slow to implement ideas sooooo…it’s only taken me that long to be like OKAY LET’S DO THIS.
I’ve mentioned it before but I have had a quote notebook since about 2008, before I started blogging, just to keep track of good quotes from books. Sometimes other quotes sneak in there that I like but mostly books. A bunch of people wanted to see it and it’s SUPER messy and just really for my viewing because I write sideways and everywhere and it’s a mess. But I thought it could be fun to do it this way to share the contents of my quote notebook!
So my goal with this? To share a quote from my quote notebook at random (aka whatever quote I’m FEELING for that day) and hopefully introduce you to some new books as I know sometimes I see a quote from a book and it makes me VERY interested in reading it or at least checking it out!
Golden by Jessi Kirby is one of my favorite contemporary YA books from one of my auto-buy authors. This quote become one of my unofficial mantras for life that I try to think about when I wake up and face a new day. This book was so inspiring in so many ways and featured a great character who always lived life by the rules and doesn’t really like to take chances or go outside of her comfort zone but through the course of the book is pushed to. It’s also got a GREAT mystery thread wherein Parker and her friends find something that could provide answers about two small town legends and golden couple from 10 years ago who died in a tragic accident but their bodies were never found. It’s seriously such a fantastic book and I have SO many quotes that I wrote down from this book in my quote notebook.
