Her mind sank into the familiar pages as she retreated into a tale of warlocks and distant lakes and ordinary closets that led to extraordinary places. The story wrapped itself around her like a blanket, but then there was the ache of longing that always came hand in hand when she read a favorite tale. She could pretend that she was somewhere else and someone else, but life was not for pretending.-- pg 28
QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19
First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.
