“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.”
“Then sometimes, only sometimes, I will reveal those, dark, secret things from the murkiest depths of your own heart that you never wanted anyone else to know about or indeed, things you refused to admit even to yourself. Those are the visions of greatest value, but also greatest danger, for they are the inescapable horrors of your own making. You cannot run away from yourself.”
“But the thing about labyrinths is that you’re always at your most lost just before you get to the centre.”
“Numbing the pain for a while will only make it worse when you finally feel it.”
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme currently being hosted by @Books and a Beat. All are welcome to participate!
●Grab your current read.
●Open to a random page.
●Share two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page.
●BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (You don’t want to give too much away so as to not ruin the book for others!)
●Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

“Love doesn’t just magically appear, it takes work and trust, and once that trust is lost then love disappears.”
