Maybe the most beautiful things in the world are not meant to be owned or conquered or even touched. Like a rainbow or a starry sky, watching them is all you can do. And sometimes that’s enough.
Every time I find a new awesome author, I am basically Cookie in Atlantis.
There are so many wonderful lines in this book that need highlighting, but amongst my favourites are:
I always seem to be daydreaming, one foot in the ordinary and the other in an imaginary world. I’ve sat in this park countless afternoons, imagining things that I’d like to see and things that I’d like to build someday.[hard same]
I’ve gone from being excited about life to being afraid of it. [I know the feeling ;_;]
I have a weakness for monuments from old times. [ugh, yes, 100%]
A little fantasy never killed anyone, did it? ♡♡♡
The real world problems James faces are immensely, and painfully, relatable i.e. debt, your place in the world, love, family and loss. There were lots of really hard hitting moments that were almost too real. ;_;
This is a great first novel from Fox and I can’t wait to see what he writes next!
