Hey guys! I can’t believe tomorrow is already Valentine’s Day! Honestly, I’ll say I wasn’t looking forward to it this year, but that’s only because I have a Calculus exam the same day. Like, who schedules a math exam over Valentine’s Day??? Pray for me, y’all, because if you know me, you know I don’t do the whole math scene. But I’m learning! I made it this far, I can go farther!
*Ahem* Anyway, it’s time for another Valentine’s Day themed quote, and this time I will be using a quote from one of my favorite books. And when I say one of my favorite books, I mean one of the books that made me sob my heart out, and a book that I will never stop recommending to people despite that fact. It’s just so beautiful and horrible at the same time! Take a look!
“I envy the mortals. It’s because they’re weak and damaged that they can love.” – Aphrodite (Lovely War by Julie Berry)
I can’t express how much I love this book. I cried literally the entire way through it (which I guess isn’t surprising, haha!), and when I made my sister and my Nana read it, they sobbed, too. Like, I literally had to beg them to keep reading because they didn’t want to read a sad ending. I mean, it’s a World War I love story, so what can you expect? But this isn’t just ANY WWI love story! This one is told by the Greek gods. In this moment, Aphrodite was lamenting her inability to fall in love like humans can. It’s such a sad part of the story! Let me tell you, there is no book like this one. The writing is practically poetry with how beautiful it is. And the romance is SO. DANG. SWEET. If you haven’t read this book, PLEASE READ IT! Okay…I won’t force you, but…it’s just so good…
What do you think about this quote? Have you read this book? Let me know in the comments below! And as always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
