A thought-provoking quote





"All reality, I decide, is a blender where hopes and dreams are mixed with fear and despair."

-- Willow Chance, narrator of Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan




See last week's post for my review of this amazing book.

  2. I love when books contain these little nuggets about life. It's one reason I adore most all middle grade books -- somewhere inside each, you find a nugget such as this.

  4. Great quote! But I think you left off the last part:

    "All reality, I decide, is a blender where hopes and dreams are mixed with fear and despair and hopefully enough rum to make a decent pina colada."

    1. Ahaha, Chris! Um, not in a middle grade novel, unfortunately. Nice try, though! I give you points for that.

  5. It sounds grim but at the same time so very true. Plus it hits close to home. Very close.
    Thanks for sharing, Joanne.

    1. Gosh, Akoss. If it hits close to home you're either going to love it or not be able to read it at all. Hugs to you, my friend.
