Quotes by Tanya Boteju  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“With each passing moment, I’d get that feeling you sometimes have the moment you’re about to flip the final page of a really good book, when your anticipation for what happens next overwhelms you, but you also know that turning the page means you're closer to an end.”
Tanya Boteju, Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens

“As I said it, I immediately felt a twinge of desire for something else poking between my ribs, jabbing at the familiar emptiness. Like maybe, if I could change thing up somehow, I might be able to fill some of that blank space. And maybe, if I weren’t so blank, people would actually be drawn to me. To want me.”
Tanya Boteju, Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens

“But I told myself if I could just get past my house and hammock without being sucked in by the guaranteed comfort, something else might be waiting for me on the other side, something that might color me outside the lines and flow into other parts of my life.”
Tanya Boteju, Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens
