I loved this! I recommend it for all book lovers! It's beautifully written, has a great plot, and I loved the characters! I REALLY want to go to the Cemetary of Forgotten Books and get lost for a while. It's got everything you could want in a story- romance, mystery, danger, a quest, book-love, and tons of beautifully written prose!

Quotes Dara Liked

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

“Fools talk, cowards are silent, wise men listen.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Gianna I loved that excerpt as well! One reason why I like to leave (finished) books in random places for others to pick up and read .
