Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
The main reason I chose to start blogging was to keep track of things in my own mind – reading challenges, recipes I liked, books I wanted to read, my opinions on films I’d seen etc. Starting a blog gave me an outlet for expressing myself, and it’s a fun thing I can do purely for me – not my lecturers, or family, or boyfriend, just a creative hobby that’s all about taking some time for myself. So all in all – selfishness drove me to book blogging!

The question this week:
Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you’ve experienced in a book?
My absolute favourite I think, would have to be this quote, which I am completely in love with!
The Amber Spyglass (Phillip Pullman): ““I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…” “
Other noteworthy romantic quotes:
Dead to the World (Charlaine Harris): “We could go back,” he said. In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. “We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other’s bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you.” His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. “I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you.”
“Sounds like a marriage,” I said, trying to lighten the atmosphere. But my voice was too shaky.
“Yes,” he said.”
The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins): “I can feel Peeta press his forehead into my temple and he asks, ‘So now that you’ve got me, what are you going to do with me?’ I turn into him. ‘Put you somewhere you can’t get hurt.”
Fifty Shades Darker (E.L. James): ““This is me, Ana. All of me…and I’m all yours. What do I have to do to make you realize that? To make you see that I want you any way I can get you. That I love you.” “
