Thursday Quotables: The Mad Scientist’s Daughter


Thursday Quotables is a weekly event hosted by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies

So, since I can’t quote this book enough, here’s another wonderful, poignant, beautiful quote from my new fave, The Mad Scientist’s Daughter:

She liked best the stories about people becoming other things. Stories where women became swans or echoes. In the evenings, when Finn disappeared into the mysterious recesses of the laboratory, Cat went out to the garden or down to the river and wondered what it would be like to be a stream of water, a cypress tree, a star burning a million miles away.

Relatable? Check. Gorgeous? Check. All the awards to this book.
