The Harry Potter Series! Yes, I know! I know! Don’t judge me.

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2012?

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

Try and guess what book? I’ve mentioned it, like, fifteen times already.

  1. Hahaha, rushing blog posts in a day is perfectly fine! I was really excited for Carrier of the Mark as well, but meh. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t original AT ALL. Oooh, I’ve heard mixed things about Shatter Me, but since you loved it so much I’m tempted to pick it up faster!

Thanks for commenting! It means a lot :)
