  1. I like your book blog quote feature. Certainly not every book deserves this attention, but this one does. Nice choices of quotes. After reading your review, I requested this book and am about half way through. I think I now know why I read cozy mysteries as mental relief. I empathize WAY too much with characters such as the ones in Holding Up the Universe.

  2. I love quotes, so thank you for sharing these! I can’t wait to get started on this book once it’s released, for I loved All the Bright Places so, so much. I have a feeling Holding Up the Universe will be just as special. 🙂 I did a quotes feature for All the Bright Places on my blog a few months ago, if you’d like to take a look at it:
