faevii: (happiness)
I finished reading The Name of the Wind and it was just as much fun as the other two times. Oddly enough, I checked my old journals and discovered that both times it was also either September or early October. Now I almost want to turn that into a habit and reread the book around the same time each year. :D

You know what happens when I read books, right? (Hint: It involves quotes.)

Bits that stuck out to me this time:

It felt exactly like someone had hit me in the head with a church.

"You know how hard it is to find a pretty girl with the right sort of ears," Bast said matter-of-factly.

If not for him, I would never have become the man I am today. I ask that you not hold it against him. He meant well.

The sky was a featureless grey sheet of cloud that looked as if it wanted to rain but couldn't quite work up the energy.

I sorted these by length, haha. Just so the longer ones would be at the end and I could easily stick them all under a cut. )

And then, of course, there was the part that reminded me of why I ended up choosing the name faevii instead of various other options ending in -vii (other than the fact that [livejournal.com profile] tavii was already taken): "You see, there's a fundamental connection between seeming and being. Every Fae child knows this, but you mortals never seem to see." Aaah, stop me from quoting the entire page again! I love that conversation.

I slightly regret that I decided to reread it so early, though. Now I still have to wait ages until the sequel comes out!!
