Welcome to Quick Quote! The prompt for this week was ‘Once upon a time’. Although this had made the prompt list because I had recently read Revolting Rhymes, I decided to use a quote from Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor.
Why this quote?
Once upon a time is such a well known phrase, but I wanted to look outside typical fairy tales for my quote. This is such a great set up for the story that follows. I still enjoy reading fairy tales, and my TBR contains quite a number of retellings, which speaks to the influence that they have on readers of all ages.
Have you read Daughter of Smoke and Bone? Do you have any quotes about ‘Once upon a time’ to share? Let me know if you have any prompts you would like added to the random prompt generator list. (Yep I am still working on the name for that 😂)
See you soon
