Now for the main attraction…

Author Eliza Maxwell’s Top Five Bookish Quotes for the Day!

1) “Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is… somewhat repetitive.”— Sergeant James Hathaway from the PBS series Inspector Lewis

2) “What if you only catch people who make mistakes? That would skew the figures, wouldn’t it?” Alice Morgan from the BBC series Luther

3) “The stories never said why she was wicked. It was enough to be an old woman, enough to be all alone, enough to look strange because you have no teeth. It was enough to be called a witch. If it came to that, the book never gave you the evidence of anything. It talked about “a handsome prince”… was he really, or was it just because he was a prince that people called handsome? As for “a girl who was as beautiful as the day was long”… well, which day? In midwinter it hardly ever got light! The stories don’t want you to think, they just wanted you to believe what you were told…” — Terry Pratchett’s The Wee Free Men 

4) “Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.” — Andy Dufresne from The Shawshank Redemption

5) “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” — Anne Frank from The Diary of a Young Girl 

Eliza Maxwell lives in Texas with her ever patient husband and two kids. She’s an artist and writer, an introvert and a British cop drama addict. She loves nothing more than to hear from readers.
