    When I read books, there are always phrases and words that gets stuck for a while, or for a long time.
    Would be fun to see what sort of words and phrases you got stuck with!

    Right now im reading A song of ice and fire, so my head is filled with phrases from those books.


    Mayhaps - Deverry
    Hounds of hoolies - Tiger and Del (cursing + an animal)
    Winter is coming - ASOIAF
    My sun and stars - ASOIAF
    Moon of my life - ASOIAF
    Swift as a deer. Quiet as a shadow. Fear cuts deeper than swords - ASOIAF
    Think of the solution, not the problem - Sword of truth
    Blood and bloody ashes - WoT (cursing)

    I stay out of that category!!! Merely mentioning that many phrases/words we use are from Shakespeare, even if we've never read any.
