Memorable Monday ~ Code Name Verity (Again...)

Memorable Monday is a meme hosted by Escape in a Good Book.  I'm excited to join in on this one because I love quotes, which was the driving force behind the creation of Memorable Mondays.  I thank the ladies at Escape in a Good Book.

So... how do you participate?  It's simple ~

1) Share a quote that has captured your interest lately in a Memorable Monday post on your blog.

2) Come back here and leave the link to your post in the comment box below.  If you don't have a blog, I'd still love to hear, well, read, your quote.  Leave it in the comment box instead of a link to a non-existent blog.  :)

3) Visit other participants if you have time.  It's always nice to have visitors.  There's no overstaying your welcome this way, and they don't have to offer the obligatory drinks.  Or clean.

4) If you tweet your posts, feel free to use the hashtag #MemorableMonday.

Mostly my quotes will be from a book I've read, but they may occasionally come from cyberspace or from a friend. And yes, it's the same book as last week. :)

This Week's Choice
"I am no longer afraid of getting old. Indeed I can't believe I ever said anything so stupid. So childish. So offensive and arrogant
But mainly, so very, very stupid. I desperately want to grow old."
~Pg 114


  1. This might be my favorite YA book of 2012. I'm really hoping that it wins the Printz!

    1. So far it's topping my list! ;) The Printz would be such a great reward for it. It's wonderfully written and sucks you in. I'm loving it.

    2. Oh, and I forgot to mention: I was at an annual library conference and Nancy Pearl was a Keynote Speaker. This *is* her favorite YA book of the year. :)

    3. If it wins the Printz (fingers and toes are cramping from crossing) I will literally do a happy dance on the spot!!! And I don't dance ... =)

  2. Hmmm. I'm going to do a couple quotes from my next (re)read in anticipation =)

    “Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time.”

    “Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.”

    ― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
