Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.  Every week, readers share a quote or passage from the book they’re reading that strikes them – whether it be funny or philosophical or something in between. This week, I want to highlight beautiful quotes from Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane.  I finished this book earlier this week and discussed my overall feelings in the review, but despite what I may think of the book overall (I’ve always had issues reading Gaiman, through no fault of his)… his writing is always beautiful.  He has a way of expressing […]
