A Look Inside

A Look Inside is a post where I give you a couple of quotes from a book that I've read and enjoyed!

This week's book is Tithe by Holly Black

"Yeah, the whole family knows. It's no big deal. One night at dinner I said, 'Mom, you know the forbidden love that Spock has for Kirk? Well, me too.' It was easier for her to understand that way."

"She loves the serene brutality of the ocean, loves the electric power she felt with each breath of wet, briny air."

"If curiosity killed the cat, it was satisfaction that brought it back."

"The row of dolls watched her impassively from the bookshelf, their tea party propriety almost certainly offended."

"So what are you really wearing?" The words left her mouth before she could consider them. She winced.
He didn't seem to mind; in fact, he flashed her one of his brief smiles. "And if I said nothing at all?"
"Then I would point out that sometimes, if you look at something out of the corner of your eye, you can see right through glamour," she returned.

I feel like I'm so behind, I still haven't read this series yet. But I love Holly Black, so I'll have to pick it up. Thanks for the quotes.

I LOVE Holly Black. And I love love love this series. It was my first taste of fairy lore and of changelings, and basically I set my standard for good fey books against Tithe. I really, really want a movie.
