I distinctly remember falling head over heels for Courtney C. Steven’s debut novel over a year ago. Faking Normal is still etched in my mind and sprang up first when I was thinking of a book to do a quote book post with. There are too many quotable lines from that one, really.
This isn’t a direct quote from Faking Normal but it’s one of its strongest message. I can’t ever forget it. It’s just such a powerful line and I admire Courtney for giving an emphasis to it through Bodee and Alexi’s story.
“I’d like to hold you in the mountains, like to kiss you by the sea. Take you far, far from here to a place where you feel free. Cause we are safe, we are true, we are going to make it through. Crashing worlds, falling stars, breaking all of who we are- I want infinity with you.”
― Courtney C. Stevens, Faking Normal

I remember reading this book and just fell in love with it. Too bad I forgot what the story’s about ugh. That’s the downside of reading lots of books. I really like the second quote and the layout! I’m always fascinated with galaxy / universe stuff.
Book amnesia is understandable of course. I quite love galaxical designs myself too!
Beautiful quotes! They remind me of how much I enjoyed Faking Normal. Bodee was such an amazing character.
Right? So much love for Bodee Lennox! Thanks for dropping by, Tanya! xo
This is beautiful! Faking Normal is already on my TBR but now I might push it up a little ;)
This is gorgeous Hazel! I’ve been hesitating to read this book because I was afraid whether it will hit too close to home for me, but these quotes make me want to read it ASAP!
