  1. I loved the quotes you choose! My favorite book quote of all time is from A Different Blue by Amy Harmon: “Someone told me once that to create true art you must be willing to bleed and let others watch.”
    ~Riv @Forever Obsession

    • Ooh, I love that quote! I’ve never read A Different Blue but I just looked it up on Goodreads and added to my TBR list. Thanks for that!
