Friday’s Finest (6)

Friday’s Finest is a weekly meme hosted by Justine at A Bookful of Thoughts.

The rules are:

~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure  it isn’t a spoiler!
~If you’d like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.Clockwork Angel

I wanted to share a quote from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare:

Camille smiled. She was beautiful, Will had to admit- but then, a lot of vampires were beautiful. Their beauty had always seemed to him like the beauty of pressed flowers- lovely, but dead.

The last line made me laugh- ‘lovely, but dead.’ For some reason, to me it seems like something a kid would observe in that raw, innocent voice that speaks the truth more simply than anything- about the beauty of vampires, too. I never realized that, but it’s true- vampires may be beautiful, depending on the book you’re reading, but they’re dead, after all.

By the way, the only vampires I ever really liked are from Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel. They seem a lot more, I don’t know, mystical and supernatural and regal than any I’ve encountered in other books.

Have an awesome weekend!

    Oh my gosh Clockwork Angel!! I’ve yet to read this (before City of Fallen Angels :P )! This quote is a perfect analogy to describe beautiful vampires! Haha.
