“Say It Again” Saturday was created because…Sometimes when I’m reading a book there are lines that just jump out at me. They make me want to laugh, cry, or just sit and think for a minute. Sometimes the lines are just beautifully written. They are the kind of lines that you want to stop reading, find someone close by, and read the line or passage aloud to them so they can share it with you.
This week I read DEMON’S LEXICON by Sarah Rees Brennan (Thanks Sarah!) and thought I’d share a few fun phrases from the book.
He was icily furious. (p. 24)
Creeping from the small unused hearth, over the worn read rug, and spilling onto the carpet, came pale, almost invisible tendrils of mist. (p. 31)
The spell of blood to blood sang in Nick’s veins, as if there was a kettle somewhere bringing his blood to the boil. For a moment all he could hear was that singing victorious sound, and all he could feel was the tug of connection between himself and this man, the link formed of shared blood. (p. 273)
Nick swallowed. There seemed to be barbed wire in his throat, and he thought that if he spoke, the words would come out mangled and torn. (p. 288)
Did you find a funny, beautiful, or shocking phrase this week?
