Ever since I read A Time to Die from the Out of Time series by Nadine Brandes, I've been head over heels with her writing and fabulous personality. She's a blast to talk with, and Joshua and I are so thrilled to have her join us for an interview this Friday! Stick around for it!
"Now that the Clock is gone, I never know if today is my last day. I might die tomorrow. And that brings me to life."
"Thousands of light strings and sparkles swoop along the underside of the Marble, lighting up the early morning shadows like fireflies. Only they're stars and we're walking through a celestial wonderland."
"Home. The word doesn't connect with this place anymore. It was a home six months ago, but no longer. It's weird and I don't like feeling like a stranger. But... I am new. This place is old. We don't belong together."
"All I feel is the suffocating blanket of my peoples' hatred. They hate me. They hate me, yet I love them and fear for them."
"He smiles. I smile. I think we're having a moment. One where we're not thinking about our dead brothers. But then, I guess now I am thinking about our dead brothers. Drat."
"I hate death. Not the aftermath- the hope of heaven or the peaceful departure for the world- I simply hate the fact that death happens in harsh ways. Bloody ways. Suffocating ways."
"Am I broken? I don't want to die broken."
"How ironic that we both relax about the topic of murder and tense at the topic of love."
"I'd never seen a dolphin before. It's sleek, smooth, and seems blissful. I wouldn't mind being a dolphin."
"Life is like a game of tag, and you're it. You'll always be it. And you must chase it with all you've got. But the moment you stop chasing it, the game's over and you've lost. You'll always lose if you stop. What's the point of having life if you won't play?"
