This weekly feature (from our friends at Bookshelf Fantasies) is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!
For my first Thursday quote I am going to use Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. This is Sophie’s first YA novel and is sweet silly and just about perfect. Our protagonist Audrey finds herself trying to cope with Social Anxiety after a traumatic bullying event at her school. Audrey’s family is super quirky and lovable and her romantic interest (Linus) is totally wonderful.
“If I was a hero in LOCC I’d have like enhanced attributes, or some extra kick-ass weapon or something. I’m stronger. I feel taller. I bounce back quicker.”
I choose this quote because I feel it’s really uplifting. As someone who also deals with bad anxiety this is really inspiring. Plus I love that it’s not super deep and philosophical she’s making a comparison to a video game.
Has anyone else read this book? I’ll be doing a full review shortly.
