This week's pick is, quite simply put, fiiine. Like it's a luxury to be reading such fine-ness.
by Jennifer Donnelly
I play until my fingers are blue and stiff from the cold, and then I keep on playing. Until I'm lost in the music. Until I am the music-- the notes and chords, the melody and harmony. It hurts, but it's okay because when I'm the music, I'm not me. Not sad. Not afraid. Not desperate. Not guilty.
This is it. The big reconciliation scene. Where I run to him and he holds me and we cry bright silver tears and everything is better. I wait for the music to start. I wait for someone to cue the violins. For the cheap Hollywood score to kick in. But it doesn't. And it won't. I know that. I've been waiting for two years.
Aahh, trust me, of what I've read so far, the prose is just gorgeous. It's exquisite, this book is to be savoured.
I haven't finished this (not even close) but it's great so far. Which quote did you like more? (haha, you don't need to answer that)
