Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Quotes from For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is ten of my favorite quotes from For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten.

“People with power resent losing it, and too much power for too long a time can make a villain of anyone.”

“I want the roots…I understand what it means, and I want them anyway, because I am for the Wolf, and the Wolves are for the Wilderwood.”

“I don’t think we’re ever ready to take on what our parents leave us.” Eammon studied his knotted hands. “The places left rarely fit.”

“She was going into the Wilderwood to save everyone she loved from herself.”

“A forest in your bones, a graveyard beneath your feet. There are no heroes here.”

“People with power resent losing it, and too much power for too long a time can make a villain of anyone.”

“I want the roots…I understand what it means, and I want them anyway, because I am for the Wolf, and the Wolves are for the Wilderwood.”

“The warm familiarity of the bookshelves kept her together, knit her back into herself as she wandered between them.”

“A forest in your bones, a graveyard beneath your feet. There are no heroes here.”

“She went to grab her scarlet cloak before remembering it was still in Valleyda. One shaky sigh, that she’d left it there, but a marriage was more than a cloak. As for the other reasons she’d kept it—the claiming of who she was, what she was—she didn’t need a cloak for that anymore, either. She knew it in her bones, she wore it in her eyes instead of on her shoulders.”

“Because monsters are real,” she said. “And even the Wolf needs help sometimes.”

What did you choose this week?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
