Hallo everyone, hope you’re enjoying your weekend! I decided to post this today instead of my usual Monday post as I am in work 8-5pm tomorrow, so it’ll probably be easier for me if I post this now. Due to working lates over the weekend (4pm-2am), I’ve not been able to get much reading done, which means I probably won’t have a review up until thursday at earliest (however, I am going to read a chunk this afternoon and my posts on tuesday/wednesdays are memes so it isn’t like the blog will be dead this week)
ANYWAY, moving on. My topic of this post is “Epigraphs”. Inspired by the booktuber “Booksandquills”, (follow the link to the video)- I’ve decided to do a post celebrating my favourite Epigraphs among the books I own.
Now for those of you who don’t know, because I didn’t until the other day, an “Epigraph” is the short piece of writing often placed before the novel begins but after the dedication. It tends to be a relevant quote from another work which helps to set the tone of the story out.
Of the 250-so books I currently own on my bookcases, only 39 of them contain Epigraphs. Of those thirty nine, here are my favourites, in no particular order. Some of these books I didn’t actually even like (looking at you, Hourglass.), but the Epigraphs in them are just lovely.
