Follow Friday: Quotes

Increase Blog Followers


How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.
All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.


Question (kind of): Share your favorite literary quote! 

Answer: This is an evil question, because there's absolutely no way I could choose just one. How about a couple?

"Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that   the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book." - The The Fault In Our Stars, John Green

"I am haunted by humans." - The Book Thief, Marcus Zusak

"I spend my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence through association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being compromised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction." Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi

"People aren't either wicked or noble. They're like chef salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict." - The Grim Grotto, Lemony Snicket

...and, yeah, I think I'll stop there before we're here all day long. I prefer Bloglovin', but any method of following works fine. I will always return the favor. :)

  1. Hopping through. The Book Thief quote haunts me, probably because I'm thinking of the whole book in the context of that quote.

    1. Yeah, it doesn't seem that complex by just reading the quote, but if you've read the whole thing it kind of makes you shiver.

    1. Lol, it's been so long since I've read his books. Maybe I should do a big re-read of the series.
