12 Days of Blogmas – Day Twelve: 12 Quotes from Turtles All the Way Down

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN!” There are so many wonderful quotes, and because I don’t plan on writing a review for the book itself, I thought I would share them here. I’m in no place to judge whether a book portrays mental illness well, so I didn’t think it was fair for me to review it. What I will say however is the story is wonderful and everyone should read it. Go, go, go, go (then come back and read my post). Continue reading “12 Days of Blogmas – Day Twelve: 12 Quotes from Turtles All the Way Down”
