When I decided to start doing a Friday Favorites post, it was not my intention to focus on things I am currently reading or have read recently. I had thought I’d be going back in time quite a bit to mine information for these posts. That hasn’t been the case so far. I’m still thinking there will be plenty of times I go back a year, two, five, or even to childhood. But, it just so happens that I’m once again talking about something I read recently.
Earlier in the week I posted my 5-star review (and an excerpt!) for Best Laid Plans. Not all amazing books have tons of amazing quotes, but this one did. I’m going to share a few here. Trust me, I highlighted way more than I’m sharing here. But I wanted to be sure to only include those that wouldn’t give anything away and that would make sense out of the context of the story. Quotes we can all enjoy, having read the book or not. These are in no particular order, but I’m saving my favorite for last.
The first I just love for the image it brought to mind. What an out-of-the box description. I love it because I can totally picture it, yet it was totally unique.
I think most will find the next quote adorable, but when you know these characters it’s just so freaking cute and on point it makes my heart swell…in a good way.
The next is a bit longer. It’s part of a conversation between brothers. Really, although I said I was putting my favorite last, I should have said the last two are my favorites because this one and the last really spoke to me in many ways.
And last, some more truth. I’m telling you guys, you should read this book. And although I didn’t have as many snippets of prose from the first book in the series, Better Than People, it is also a phenomenal story. You don’t have to read that one to read this one, but you should.
Happy Friday, my friends. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
