Day 2- A Quote From my Favourite Book.

The whole Inkheart trilogy is littered with beautiful writing, and choosing just one quote is difficult.
It's especially difficult because I haven't read them in a while.

However, I'll give it a go.

This is a beautiful quote from it. it's very descriptive. and that's exactly what I like.

"They had gone. Had left him alone with all the blue, that clashed with the red of the fire. Blue as the evening sky, blue as cranesbill flowers, blue as the lips of drowned men and the heart of a blaze burning with too hot a flame. Yes, sometimes it was hot in this world, too. Hot and cold, light and dark, terrible and beautiful, it was everything all at once. It wasn't true that you felt nothing in the land of Death. You felt and heard and smelled and saw, but your heart remained strangely calm, as if it were resting before hte dance began again.
Peace. Was that the word?"
