This book is sparklingly beautiful, a dark, Jazz Age retelling of the twelve dancing princesses fairy tale. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club was one of my favorite reads a few years ago, and it is jam-packed with gorgeous quotes. Below are some of my favorites.
“He was like a song she’d heard years back, played again in a quiet room; there was no telling if the song was any good, or if she only remembered it fondly because of the person she’d been long ago, when she heard it first.”
“The girls were wild for dancing, and nothing else. No hearts beat underneath those thin, bright dresses. They laughed like glass.”
“You can’t expect people to give you the things you love, unless you know how to ask.”
