I just finished reading The Giver, and while it wasn’t my favorite dystopian series ever (I still have to go with The Woodlands on that one), I’m excited to see it come to life on the big screen. I have a few concerns for how it will appear as a movie (I’m guessing they will have to change a lot), but I think it could be really good. So today for Quote Me Thursday, I am presenting my favorite quotes from The Giver.
“We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.”
― Lois Lowry, The Giver
Quote Me Thursday Link Up 35
And now for the link-up! Remember, your post doesn’t have to contain a quote if you don’t have one (but quotes are what I will feature) just book-themed! I will feature my favorite quote linked-up every week and I will share your quotes if you include them in graphic form. By linking up, you also give me permission to include your quote image in a feature and to receive Quote Me Thursday e-mail reminders.
Last week, my favorite quote came from Clara of Break It Down. Her quote came from the book Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi, which is part of the Shatter Me series. I haven’t read this series, but as an action-packed dystopian novel with a female lead like The Hunger Games, I imagine I would have fun reading it.
Here is her quote:
” Aaron Warner Anderson , chief commander and regent of Sector 45, son of the supreme commander of the Reestablishment. He has a soft spot for fashion.”
I like this quote because it sounds funny to mention that someone has a soft spot for fashion after listing all those military titles. 🙂
