My favourite quotes from some of the books that I read in April...
"The four of them sat down on the floor and gazed around. It was gorgeous. Leslie gave a deep satisfied sigh. 'I love this room,' she said. 'Don't you feel the golden enchantment of it?...'"
Bridge to Teribithia by Kathrine Patterson. Leslie to her parents and Jesse.
"She had been right. The world was a terrible place, cruel, pitiless, dark as a bad dream. Not a good place to live. Only in books could you find pity, comfort, happiness - and love. Books loved anyone who opened them. They gave you security and friendship and didn't ask for anything in return, they never went away, never, not even when you treated them badly."
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Elinor.
"My hands closed on glasses from the bar, and I hurled them against the windows, where they smashed satisfyingly, leaving delightful-looking broken shards. I realized after a little while that no one was trying to stop me. In fact, Bren's grandfather had somehow sidled up beside me and was patiently handing me objects to throw. Bren stood in the doorway, out of the way of any shrapnel, with a look on his face that I can only describe as a serious smile."
A long long Sleep by Anna Sheehan. Rose.
I did read more then three books in April, but these were the only ones I wanted quotes from...
