Hi friends! Time for another Thursday Quotable and today I have picked a few lines from My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises by Fredrik Backman. A really-really great book – see review here. It wasn’t easy to pick a few, because I found myself dog-earing almost every other page!
Thursday Quotables is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written. Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines will be, and you’re invited to join in! Created by Lisa, over at Bookshelf Fantasies, and joined in by, well, me!

There’s something special about a grandmother’s house. You never forget how it smells.
Having a grandmother is like having an army. This is a grandchild’s ultimate privilege: knowing that someone is on your side always, whatever the details. Even when you are wrong. Especially then, in fact.
It’s strange how quickly the significance of a certain smell can change, depending on what path it decides to take through the brain. It’s strange how close love and fear live to each other.
The mightiest power of death is not that it can make people die, but that it can make the people left behind want to stop living.
And they sit on the chest together and eat chocolate Santas. Because you can be upset while you’re eating chocolate Santas. But it’s much, much, much more difficult.
There are plenty more, but I suggest you pick up the book and read it 🙂
