Words We Read (3)


Words We Read is a feature that we created to share various book quotes we read that really mean a lot to us. For more information and past posts you can head over here.

This week I am sharing a quote from a book series that I absolutely devoured. I was very into dystopian type of books, and the Legend series by Marie Lu really hit me at that time of my life. I loved the action, the intensity, and the characters. The relationships that develop between the main characters and the drama that is happening all around them…this made it an absolute page turner for me. I binge so few series, and this was on that I dove into and didn’t leave until I was done.

Today’s quote is one that has hit me a lot lately. The past few weeks have been pretty miserable for me. I have really struggled mentally and felt like I was dragging everyone else down. I had found myself stuck in a vicious cycle of negative thinking and I couldn’t get out. This quote reminded me that I can. That each day is a fresh start and with each fresh start comes the opportunity to try again.

Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.

Legend by Marie Lu

This is the first line from a series that I have devoured. If you know me you know that I really struggle to finish the final book of a series. It’s like I want to to live on forever and if I just straight up refuse that final book it will never end. Sadly, I have come to realize that this is not the case. Does that mean I have changed my ways? Nope! This series, however, I could not wait to finish it up. I just HAD to know what was coming next, and since there are only 3 books and they aren’t SUPER lengthy I thought I would be ok. (Might I add if you have not read this series you should. I loved every minute of it and I was really really really happy with the way that the series was concluded).

My mother thinks I’m dead. Obviously I’m not dead, but it’s safer for her to think so. –Legend by Marie Lu

Have you read this series? What were your thoughts on it? Any first lines to share this week?
