100 Books, 100 Quotations – 2017 -Addendum

I ended up with 15 extra books this year! Here are the bonus 15 in addition to the first 100 in the last post. Now onto 100 more books for this year!

  1. Room by Emma Donoghue — “God’s yellow face isn’t coming in today, Ma says he’s having trouble squeezing through the snow.”
  2. The Emotionary: A Dictionary of Words That Don’t Exist for Feelings That Do by Eden Sher, Julia Wertz — “emote + spiral / Emotal / v. to feel, think and judge oneself in rapid succession, ultimately causing immobility”
  3. She, Myself, and I by Emma Young — “Right now, she is in a coma. Her body is intact, but her brain is dead. I have essentially the opposite problem. We’re two halves of a person.”
  4. The Witch Boy by Molly Knox Ostertag — “I think we have much to learn from each other.”
  5. Swords, Sorcery, and Sundry by Mina MacLeod – “He once knew an assassin who would give speeches in such situations, or worse, puns.”
  6. Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt — “I can’t believe it. My experiences with endless frustrations and having to work on things for so long has actually paid off.”
  7. Catmas Carols by Laurie Loughlin and Gemma Correl — (to the tune of We Three Kings of Orient Are Chorus) “Home is heaven. Home is good./ Home is where we get our food./ Why go out for christmas parties? / Frankly we’re not in the mood.”
  8. The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George — “The KINGDOM OF WEIRDNESS will be a paradise of freedom on earth in which joy and happiness and clean forests and other unbesmirched kinds of nature reign and now one judges anyone else and eventually everyone will see how VASTLY SUPERIOR Weirdness is to quote unquote ‘normalcy’ and quote unquote ‘normalcy’ will wither away.”
  9. That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E. K. Johnston — “Though it might have appeared pure politics to officially recognize all religions practiced in the Empire as part of its Church, the practical effects have been far-reaching. From Islam–the most numerous– to individual indigenous groups in Australia, we serve better when we talk like grown-ups and avoid petty squabbling.”
  10. The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill — “See the leaves on her horns? We gradually harvest them to make a special brew.”
  11. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones — “The rule was: Lose your temper, lose a customer. She had just proven that rule. It troubled her to realize how very enjoyable it had been.”
  12. Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling — “As the weeks passed, Alec realized that aside from certain rapidly diminishing ethical qualms, he had never been happier.”
  13. Witches of America by Alex Mar — “I want to grasp the moment when that confidence becomes conviction; to know what it’s like to believe, without doubt, that you hold the key to the Mysteries, that you are capable of magic. I decided to press deeper, to try to discover just what that faith this built on.”
  14. How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake — “I used to love this lighthouse. It always seemed so magical when I was six or seven, but you can only hold your own mother’s hair back while she pukes up vodka so many times before you get a little disenchanted.”
  15. Project Semicolon: Your  Story Isn’t Over by Amy Bleuel — “The semicolon was chosen because, in literature, a semicolon is used when an author chooses to continue a sentence, rather than end it. You are the author and the sentence is your life; you are choosing to continue. This book is filled with examples of people who chose not to end their sentences.”
