Phew! It’s been two weeks! Did any of you guess during that bonus week? Anyway:
Last week’s quote came from The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. Ellen and Becca guessed the right author–and fantasy world! 🙂 (You’re first guess was right, Ellen.)
I was going to include this part of the quote:
Elves know a lot and are wondrous folk for news, and know what is going on among the peoples of the lands, as quick as water flows, or quicker. (50)
But ‘elves’ definitely would have had to go, and what in the world do you put in the brackets? [they]? I don’t know. So I just cut it off. Now, for this week’s quote:
A gift. Was it? [She] hunched over and hid her face in her ash-smeared hands, resisting the impulse to bang her forehead on the aged stone floor. And yet… and yet… if she refused, would she ever hear His voice again?
I think this is a pretty obvious one for those of you who have read the book, but maybe not. It also probably doesn’t make any sense if you haven’t! 🙂
Happy guessing, as Leah would say!
