Sensational Quote Sunday
Some books change your life. They change the way you see the world. They do this not only with the story as a whole, but sometimes with an idea, a beautiful phrase, or even a word, that resonates with you the way nothing has before.
Sensational Quote Sunday is my way of paying homage to those books that remind me every day why I love reading.

Have you read The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit? Has Tolkien’s writing been a part of your life?
