I did this challenge a couple of years ago, and I was nominated again by Louise from A Little Fool Reads, so thank you very much for nominating me!
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day).
- Nominate 3 new bloggers each day.
For day one, I’ve chosen this quote from Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia:
I think [writers] always do [have an ending], somewhere in our hends, even if we don’t seriously consider them. Like life, what gives a story its meaning is the fact that it ends. Our stories have lives of their own – and it’s up to us to make them mean something.
– ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS by Francesca Zappia
To me, this quote is really powerful, and I truly love it, especially the final two sentences. It means a lot to me, and really hit me in the chest when I first read it. I had to pause and reread the quote a couple of times, and after I finished the book I typed it up on my typewriter and carry it in my journal with me, and it takes a lot for a quote to rattle around my brain constantly like this one does.
Thanks so much for reading, and make sure to check back tomorrow for another quote!
Turning the Page is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly. In it, I talk about what I read during the week with a Tweet-sized review, and what I’m planning on reading next week, as well as what you might’ve missed on the blog. You’re very welcome to join in if you’d like! Just make sure to link back.
This week I read…
I read two books this week, and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.
- Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi – this is the first in a new mythology series, and the first from “Rick Riordan Presents”. I loved the character of Aru, the whole plot, and the mythology, which is based on Indian mythology and contains, of course, plenty of monsters and gods! Can’t wait for book 2!
- Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – this was such a good read! All about the internet, content creating, friendships, and anxiety and depression. I really loved the entire thing, and it was also great because it has comic illustrations throughout, which is something I would love to see more of in novels!
Next week I want to read…
I have a couple in mind…
- Friendship Fails of Emma Nash by Chloe Seager – I’m 67% through this book right now (thanks kindle!) and hopefully I’ll finish it tomorrow. I’m LOVING it so far!
- The Glass Magician by Charlie M Holmberg – I read book 1 of this series in, like, 2015, and always wanted to finish the trilogy but never did! I recently bought the last two on kindle so would love to finish the trilogy.
- The Master Magician by Charle M Holmberg – book 3 in The Paper Magician series.
On the blog…

How was your week in lit?
Happy reading! Hx
