Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables
 is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. It’s the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund had been on my TBR for the past year or so. I downloaded it onto my Kindle and kind of just forgot about it. I’m so glad that I rediscovered it, it’s such a fantastic retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion (my favourite novel of all time). While reading it a week ago, this quote stood out:

“Envy hurt exponentially more than heartbreak because your soul was torn in two, half soaring with happiness for another person, half mired in a well of selfpity
and pain.”
