This week’s topic is a Freebie meaning I can write about whatever the hell I want to! YAY! I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes from books I read this year! 


“And listen to me love, when a woman risks her place, her very life to speak a truth the world despises? Believe her. Always.” 
― Joy McCullough, Blood Water Paint
“I don’t know what’s worse. Being mistreated because of the color of your skin, your size, or having to prove that it really happened.” 
― Renée Watson, Piecing Me Together
“You want to know what weakness is? Weakness is treating someone as though they belong to you. Strength is knowing that everyone belongs to themselves.” 
― Yaa Gyasi, Homegoing
“Wouldn’t it be nice, don’t you think, to not constantly compare everything you say and do to everything you’ve ever said and done and hope one day the good will outweigh the cringeworthy?” 
― Lianne Oelke, Nice Try, Jane Sinner
“Sadness is awkward. Grief is awkward. A missing mother is awkward, no matter what form that missing takes. And no one likes awkward. No one knows what to do with it unless you’re the person used to receiving all those averted gazes.” 
― Ashley Herring Blake, How to Make a Wish
“What could I become if I stopped worrying about death, about pain, about anything? If I stopped trying to belong? Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.” 
― Holly Black, The Cruel Prince
“It was a terrible thing, sure, but we live in a world that has no shortage of terrible things. You can’t stop for all of them.” 
― Courtney Summers, Sadie
“Lionel said as much to me once, how so many of the same people who are quick to empathize with physical disabilities don’t understand why someone with depression can’t just get up and get on with their day like the rest of the world. It’s like they need a receipt that proves someone is actually going through some shit before they care about them.” 
― Brandy Colbert, Little & Lion
“On our wedding night,” she said, “I will cut out your tongue and swallow it. Then both tongues that spoke our marriage vows will belong to me, and I will be wed only to myself. You will most likely choke to death on your own blood, which will be unfortunate, but I will be both husband and wife and therefore not a widow to be pitied.” 
― Kiersten White, And I Darken
