Top 3 Newsletter Quotes of the Month (Laurie)

I've been sending my monthly author newsletter for over two years already (where did that time go??), and one of my favorite sections is "Quotes of the Month," where I feature favorite quotes from books I've been reading recently. Or once in a while quotes from my own stories :) I haven't sent out a newsletter in a few months since I'm on a bit of a maternity leave at the moment, and I've missed scouring my latest reads for lines that make me think or laugh, or just strike me as noteworthy for whatever reason. So I thought it might be fun to go back through all my previous Quotes of the Month and pick out a few favorites (there were so many good ones, it was really hard to choose!). Enjoy!

3. Julie Hall's Life After series is a fabulous mix of this kind of snarky humor (I just love the main character Audrey's voice - I totally feel like we should be friends!) and deep spiritual insights. Plus swoony romance and a fascinating vision of heaven to explore!

2. Our own Katie Clark really struck me with this beautiful line from The Rejected Princess. This book has such a powerful message, and the mystery and tension kept me turning pages late into the night. Plus characters I could relate to and such great romance! (Are you seeing a trend here?) P.S. Did you see her cover reveal for the sequel earlier this week?? SO pretty!

1. The Mermaid's Sister by Carrie Anne Noble was one of those books where I felt like I wanted to underline every other sentence because the prose is just that gorgeous. Add to that complex characters, the sweetest romance (again, ha!), and a unique story premise, and I was totally hooked. And so much to think about - this line still gives me chills every time I read it.

Of course I need an honorable mention because I can never seem to limit my choices to just three! I love this line, and I feel like it's representative of Tammy Lash's lovely writing style in White Wolf and the Ash Princess. Plus I really like the way it came together with the font and graphic, if I do say so myself :)

If you're interested in more quotes, I'd love to have you sign up for my newsletter! Monthly writing and personal updates, plus great quotes of course! You can find it here.

See you next time!
