Welcome to Thursday Quotables! This feature is the place where you highlight a great quote, line or passage you've discovered in a book you're currently reading. Whether it's something heart-warming, heart-breaking, funny or inspiring, Thursday Quotables is where my favourite line(s) of the week will be, and I invite you to join in! It's hosted by Lisa at BookShelf Fantasies, so be sure to check her out :)
The book I'm reading this week is Unleashed by Tempest Avery. I was given this book by the author and it's the sequel in a trilogy retelling the Hades and Persephone myth with a unique twist. I'm quite enjoying it!
My quote is from a conversation by Spencer (Persephone) and Hadrian (Hades) and the intense connection they have:
"'I can't be what you want me to be, Hadrian.'
He frowned, seeming startled by her comment. "I don't want you to be anything other than what you already are. Haven't you figured that out already, Spencer? I'm Hades; I live in fire and brimstone, and yet you've awakened something in me that I thought was lost forever. I feel. I feel for you.'"
I'm really enjoying the way the author is portraying their romance, too; it's not love, but the possibility of love. It's something different and great to read.
