Hello, lovelies! I have been getting into making reels for my bookstagram (find me here) and one reel I’ve made sort of inspired a series of sorts that I’d like to translate to here. So, I want to share some of my favorite books that have beautiful writing and quotes that I really love. Here are some 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.”
“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.”
“The warm familiarity of the bookshelves kept her together, knit her back into herself as she wandered between them.”
“People created stories to fill the gaps they didn’t understand, and religion grew up around it like rot on a fallen tree.”
“She read everything in the palace library, some things twice. It was one of the few ways to soothe her mind when it started churning and spilling over itself, connecting fears in spiderwebs she couldn’t disentangle. The scent of paper, the orderliness of printed words, the sensation of page edges beneath her fingers smoothed the waves of her thoughts to placidity.
Most of the time, anyway.”
“Whatever happened, I’m sure it’s not as terrible as you remember it.” A tentative step forward, a scarred hand stretching toward her. “You aren’t terrible.”
“You never belonged to me, Redarys.” A tendril of gold escaped the black net holding the Queen’s hair, long enough to nearly brush Red’s cheek. “From the moment you were born, you belonged here. And they never let me forget.”
These are some of my favorite quotes from For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten. I will definitely be doing another one of these for the sequel For the Throne because that one also had many quotes I really loved. Do you have any favorite books that have quotes you love?
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
