Hey guys! This week I read All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry. Not my favourite read, I felt as though parts of it dragged, but overall I really enjoyed this read. Here were some of my favourite quotes from the novel.
“It’s a cold world when no one will touch you.”
“To tell the truth will make me loathsome in your eyes.
Even more than I already am.
I pledge to give you all the truth that’s in me.
And you want me to tell you this.”
“There is a curious comfort in letting go. After the agony, letting go brings numbness, and after the numbness, clarity. As if I can see the world for the first time, and my place in it, independent of you, a whole vista of what may be. Even if it is not grand or inspiring, it is real and solid, unlike the fantasy I’ve built around you. I will do this.
I will triumph over you.”
“I don’t believe in miracles, but if the need is great, a girl might make her own miracle.”
“If I thought I could never love you more, I didn’t understand you well enough.”
“Like the clanging of the bell, the truth crashes in upon me. At last I understand. He took away my voice to save me. And now, to save myself, I take it back.”
