Quotes, fangirling, and other Exciting Things

        Hello readers! How are ya'll doing? 

 I hope you're doing fine today. Anyway, so as you might know from reading my blog for the past few months, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mother Daughter Book Club  by my favorite author, Heather  Vogel Frederick.
 Well, a couple of weeks ago my mother and I were talking and she surprised me: "Bella fe," She said (this means pretty in Spanish and 'fe' comes from my middle name, Faith), eyes twinkling. "What was that you were saying about Concord?"
 Falling for it, I replied "It's the setting of my favorite series, The Mother Daughter Book Club, mom."
"You're going there over Spring break!"
   I started squealing with joy. She went on to explain that I'm going to visit a bunch of the places mentioned such as the Orchard House, home of the author Louisa May Alcott who wrote Little Women!! And I'm going to take a tour of it! * fangirls *
 Okay, okay.
 I just had to share because I really really wanted to go! I'm also excited for Friday. Our church does this really fun thing where all of the women go upstate and have a bunch of fun over the weekend. In other words, it's a time to not only stay up late with my best friend, but a time for my relationship with God to grow. 
 So now, for my quotes. Let me explain.
    So I've bookmarked a couple of my favorite Mother- Daughter Book Club quotes, and here I'll be sharing them and telling you why I chose them.

1.  Dear Pen Pal
"I was so worried about myself, and how I was going to fit in, that it honestly never occurred to me to worry about Emma being lonely."
    We all sometimes worry about fitting in, that we forget about other people who might be close to us in the process.
2. Dear Pen Pal
" Friends are one of life's richest blessings."
 Words from Gigi herself that you can't argue with, right?
3.  Dear Pen Pal
" I'd like to have a place like that to go to in the summer so I could work on a book too."
       I know exactly how Emma feels. Most writers have a time, or place, or setting where they can just write and write and be perfectly content with it, something that doesn't happen often (writers being content with what they wrote). For me, it's staying inside my Jeep on an extremely rainy day. I don't know. Something about the rain calms me. Maybe it's the way it patters softly on our hood, like little feet, or the way it runs down my window like a tear drop. The tear- drop - like drops of water on my window make me feel like writing something emotional. I don't know...
  4. Dear Pen Pal
"They are seriously cute!
'No kidding,' Answers Becca.
 Darcy or no Darcy, I have to agree."
      I love Darcy, but Owen and Sam were..nice, too.
5. Much Ado About Anne
" There's only one thing my heart desires tonight. I shut my eyes, wishing with all my might."
     A little quote  "Home For The Holidays" to explain how I feel about this.
'Poetry. Sheer poetry.'

   So, do you have favorite quotes from books? Why did you choose them?
  Thanks for reading, folks. I'll post later!
