Welcome to day two of the three days, three quotes tag!
(I’ve seen this tag all over the book blogging community and thought it was high time I did it myself! I think at one point someone did actually tag me in it, but then I completely forgot to do it. Also, doing it now after the initial craze appears to have died down somewhat is probably a good idea, since for a while it seems as though every other bookish post I saw was about this tag.)
Without any further ado, here are the rules:
- Post one quote a day for three consecutive days
- Nominate three new bloggers each day
Let’s get started!
“Gracious ignored him. ‘A farmer’s daughter, she was, though back then every girl was a farmer’s daughter. Or a farmer. She had long hair like rope, and a nose. All her eyes were blue and she had a smile like a radiant hole in the ground, with teeth. God, she was beautiful.’
‘She sounds terrifying,’ said Donegan.
‘Hush, you. I will hear no bad word spoken of your sister.'”
– The Dying of the Light by Derek Landy
This passage made me laugh out loud at its absolute absurdity and the twist at the end! I promise you it becomes 210% funnier when you imagine it said in a very thick Irish accent. God, I love Derek Landy’s sense of humor. Always cheers me up when I’m feeling down!
And as always, feel free to participate whether or not I tagged you. (Or ignore this tag, if you so choose.)
