Quotable Thursday

I know my post is running late today, but here's my Thursday Quote, from an author who probably needs no introduction...
One last moment of madness, the space between heartbeats, like the one that had sent him hurtling after her five days previously: he would stay here, after all, waiting for her to return; then cupping her perfect face in his hands and saying, "Let's try again." But they had already tried, again and again and again, and always when the first crashing wave of mutual longing subsided, the ugly wreck of the past lay revealed again, its shadow lying darkly over everything they tried to rebuild.

Quotable Thursday originally brought to you by Bookshelf Fantasies.


  1. How are you liking the book? I ended up really enjoying it (much better than The Casual Vacancy, I thought). I like this passage a lot, especially the bit about the "the ugly wreck of the past". Great line! Happy Halloween!


    1. I just about died of laughter when I got to the "Robin will be easy to remember" joke, I think Strike is the more interesting character than his assistant. I don't see how the romantic woes tie into the main plot yet(or if it will), but it's nice to see the PI has a homelife. It's certainly keeping me entertained!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me your thoughts! I try to respond to all comments and questions, so come back soon!
