Are you guilty of judging the book by its cover? I have to admit sometimes I do that! I asked because the The Artsy Reader’s Top Ten Tuesday today is a Cover Freebie (choose your own topic, centered on book covers or cover art).
Instead of just sharing the 10 covers I adore the most, all of them I have read once or more, I also want to share today some verses from each book to give you a sneak peek of the world inside their lovely skins.
“Life has to end. Love doesn’t.“
“Only he who gives up is defeated. Everyone else is victorious.“
“Our first relationship with a male is with our fathers. It affects how we relate to men forever.“
“I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.”
“I think grief is like a really ugly couch. It never goes away. You can decorate around it; you can slap a doily on top of it; you can push it to the corner of the room—but eventually, you learn to live with it.“
“Because horror on Earth is real and it is every day. It is like a flower or like the sun; it cannot be contained.“
“All humans are musical. Why else would the Lord give you a beating heart?”
“The thing I realize is, that it’s not what you take, it’s what you leave.”
“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.“
“My mother had always told her kids: if you’re about to do something, and you want to know if it’s a bad idea, imagine seeing it printed in the paper for all the world to see.“
