Loving The Lines//White Smoke

I saw that Julie over at One More Book came up with a new post called Loving the Lines.

Basically, Loving the Lines is dedicated to books with stand-out quotes that need to be shared. I’m often moved by passages and lines from the books I read, and I thought this would be a great way to show the love!! Many thanks to all the wonderful writers who inspire, empower, entertain, and make people think. 

As soon as I saw this post I knew I needed to make this a weekly post! Instead of focusing on just one author, I’ve decided to focus on one book that has some really powerful and memorable quotes.

Uncertainty isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just makes you feel cramped in a prison of your own making.

‘Don’t you mean colonizers,’ I snap, ‘since all of these were clearly already owned by somebody before?’

‘Alec, you have no idea what theses peple have been though. You, as a white man, couldn’t possibly imagine.’

Anxiety is a real thing. I woulnd’t be this way for shits and giggles.

Thank you to all the bloggerrs, reviwers, Instagrammers, TikTokers who shouted out my books and for the endless support.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Marigold is running from ghosts. The phantoms of her old life keep haunting her, but a move with her newly blended family from their small California beach town to the embattled Midwestern city of Cedarville might be the fresh start she needs. Her mom has accepted a new job with the Sterling Foundation that comes with a free house, one that Mari now has to share with her bratty ten-year-old stepsister, Piper.

The renovated picture-perfect home on Maple Street, sitting between dilapidated houses, surrounded by wary neighbors has its . . . secrets. That’s only half the problem: household items vanish, doors open on their own, lights turn off, shadows walk past rooms, voices can be heard in the walls, and there’s a foul smell seeping through the vents only Mari seems to notice. Worse: Piper keeps talking about a friend who wants Mari gone.

But “running from ghosts” is just a metaphor, right?

As the house closes in, Mari learns that the danger isn’t limited to Maple Street. Cedarville has its secrets, too. And secrets always find their way through the cracks.
