I’m reading the middle grade novel Icefall by Matthew J. Kirby and yesterday I was struck by this line:
“I realize that every story I have ever heard is a part of me, deeply rooted, whispering behind my thoughts.”
The writing is beautiful. It makes me wish I could write so well. But beyond that, it makes me think about books I’ve read in my life and how my favourite books are always there with me.
I’ve posted about one of them over at MiG Writers today.
