Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London, Book 1 (3)

As I read my Kindle, I highlight intriguing or beautifully descriptive passages from the novel. Here are a few recent . . .
Favorite Kindle Quotes featuring passage from Suddenly Rural Girl

“Most people don’t want to fight, especially when evenly matched. A mob will tear an individual to pieces and a man with a gun and a noble cause is happy to kill ever so many women and children, but risking a fair fight—not so easy…That’s why you see those pissed young men doing the dance of ‘don’t hold me back’ while desperately hoping someone likes them enough to hold them back.”

“I had a sudden bank holiday memory of holding my father’s hand in one fist and clutching a precious handful of pound coins in the other. Never enough and quickly gone.”

“I saw his shoulders tense and I swear the sun went behind a cloud—although that could have been a coincidence.”

If you’ve not read any Ben Aaronovitch, I’d definitely recommend his Rivers of London Series! Clever, funny, magical, and mysterious Contemporary Fiction. Check him out in goodreads.
