Booknerd Wednesday: Crime Fiction Quotes

Obviously I love crime fiction, horror, mystery…whatever is dark and twisty, I want to read it. I want to be scared and put on edge and made aware of evil.

,,,And because of that, I’m slowly being suffocated by my TBR pile. There are actually a lot of books that fit that criteria. Who knew?

One joy I have in reading all this dark and twisty fiction, is that sometimes, I come across a line, a quote, a thought, that is profound and enlightening.

These dark places occupied by the story lend themselves so well to truths and light.

So, I thought I’d put together a little list of some quotes I’ve read recently that have spoken to me, or that I simply just loved – maybe they’re classic, maybe they’re fun, maybe they’re profound…

But they’re all from crime fiction novels.
