A Fortnight of Bookish Posts: Days 12 – 14

Day 12:

  • Book you still aren’t sure of your feelings on:

As in ever? Because I was full of certitude about everything I read this past year. I still question whether some of those Ann Aguirre books I read were really worth reading at all.

  • Series you gave up on in 2015:

I wasn’t really ever in it, but I read The Name of the Blade by Zoe Marriott (who has written other books I did like) and could not bring myself to continue the series. It was a struggle just to complete that first one.

Day 13:

  • Favorite passage/quote of 2015:

There are two kinds of guilt. The kind that’s a burden and the kind that gives you purpose. Let your guilt be your fuel. Let it remind you of who you want to be. Draw a line in your mind. Never cross it again. You have a soul. It’s damaged but it’s there. Don’t let them take it from you.

Sabaa Tahir, An Ember in the Ashes

(I did not get around to this book but I really appreciated this quote when I saw it.)

  • Book which had the overall greatest impact on you this year:

Let God’s Light Shine Forth by Pope Benedict XVI

Day 14:
