The Pull of the Stars: A Novel by [Emma Donoghue]

I seem to have stumbled onto love, like a pothole in the night.

I can’t say too much without giving stuff away of the book, but this was so beautiful!

The High Mountain Court (The Five Crowns of Okrith Book 1) by [AK Mulford]

Bern chuckled into his drink, “Well-picked indeed, Hale.” He turned to her and said with a wink, “But don’t worry darling, it’s not you I’d be watching.” “I’ve told you, it’s never going to happen between us, Bern.” Hale chuckled, though his eyes remained fixed on Remy. Bern laughed. “Every boy dreams of finding his prince.” He turned to the Witchslayer to continue his antics, but Renwick shut him down quick with a sharp, “Don’t.”

I can’t really explain why I like this as much as I do. I just do.

Red witch magic could animate objects and, if the magic was strong enough, it could keep them moving, like the fountain at the prayer tree. Whatever spell was cast on this barge, the magic was ancient. It must have taken a hundred red witches to spell the barge to carry on crossing back and forth without sails or oars for all these many years. Only red witches possessed the level of magic to spell inanimate objects. It surprised Remy that their magic lived on, even though so many were killed. She wondered how many more years this barge would last before it broke, never to be repaired. There were so few red witches left. One day there would be no more magical objects such as this.

This explains much about the red witches.

Remy knew then that she never had a choice. She would hold on to life just to wipe his tears away. That is how much she loved him.

Very deep!

I’d love to see some of your favorite quotes!
