Friday's Finest (34)

Friday's Finest is a meme hosted by Steff & Justine from A Bookful of Thoughts.

~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn't a spoiler!
~If you'd like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

I quoted the same book last time I did this meme, I know! But still, another line stood out easily to me in a very quotable book, it’s just a snippet of what makes this book wonderful. Moriarty has this uncanny ability to write about teens, look out for my review soon :)

Book: Feeling Sorry for Celia
by Jaclyn Moriarty

A school counsellor once told Celia that she ran away because she was trying to find her “adult self” which was a normal thing for adolescents to do.


Can I say trufax? I'm still splashing around in this huge ocean called life, trying to find my adult self, so I could always use some help. And which is why I adore this quote.


  1. How funny.
    Thinking back to my teen years (way back) that makes allot of sense. I like this quote.

  2. I do the same thing all the time -- going back to books and quoting them. I've recorded them and everything!

    Mmm, this is true because I can relate too ;) I just wonder what will happen to me when it's time for me to enter the workforce. *scary*

  3. Juju- I'm glad :)

    Alexa- I know, the book rocked!

    Justine- I know this sounds bad but I only dog-ear library book for quotes, not my own bought-books... so the most wonderful quotes are less recorded :( haha and yes... *scary* just looking into the future is scary...

  4. Yay for splashers! We can hold hands and swim, sister. (Er, if we don't drown like that.)

  5. I'm in my *cough* 30's *cough* and I still haven't found my adult self. *sighs*

    Looking forward to this one.


for those who are confused, it means "Don't forget to be AWESOME". *hugs*
