Welcome back to That One Line! :)
"That One Line is an online meme in which you'll feature a certain sentence or paragraph from a book you read which struck you or left a deep impression on you. According to Goldie: "It should be from a book although quotes related to reading are also welcome."
Anyways, I am currently reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and as expected (as I've mentioned in my 2014 Reading List), this is taking "relateable" to a whole new level. Haha. It feels like my whole person was translated to words and I'm reading it from the outside. Cath was one of the characters that I feel really similar and connected to. In any case, I am almost halfway in the book and one quote caught me in particular, that made me realize that I seriously need to start a book diary this year for all the feels I've been getting from every single book I've read and will soon read this year onwards. Neat, right? One day I'll let you get a peak. :D
Well, here's the line:
"Reading was too quiet -- she needed to write"
THIS. There were times when your mind is shouting and you try to drown the voices by reading and listening to someone else's. But it's not working. Because -- as if they have a mind of their own -- they are all struggling to come out; and it feels like if you won't let them, they will eat you alive. You need to put them into paper. Let them materialize. Turn them into something concrete. That's how bad it is, sometimes. YOU JUST HAVE TO LET THEM OUT.
