Book Quotes and Scenes

I have to make this because I think this is the best how-we-became-a-couple story ever.

“Anyways. After I cock blocked him, I ran to my room, embarrassed that I did that. It was out of pure jealousy, and I didn’t even realize I liked him that way until I saw his hands on some other girl’s ass. I threw myself on my bed and started crying. A few minutes later, he walked into my room and asked me if I was okay.  I rolled over and yelled, ‘I like you, you stupid fuck-face!'” “And the rest is history…” It Ends With UsColleen Hoover

Book Quotes and Scenes

Bitten

by Kelley Armstrong

“The show’s writers had peppered the piece with words like “savage,” “wild,” and “animalistic.” What bullshit. Show me the animal that kills for the thrill of watching something die. Why does the stereotype of the animalistic killer persist?

Because humans like it. It neatly explains things for them, moving humans to the top of the evolutionary ladder and putting killers down among mythological man-beast monsters like werewolves.

The truth is, if a werewolf behaved like this psychopath it wouldn’t be because he was part animal, but because he was still too human. Only humans kill for sport.” 

A hard cruel, but so very true statement at the end of this. It’s one of those psychological ideas that I love. The moment when an author reveals a thought or idea that leaves me in silence after reading it.

Until next time,

Bitten

by Kelley Armstrong

It’s been so long since my last reread of this series and this quote hit me right in the gut when I read it again. Honest and brutal are the two words to use.
But undeniable.

“The show’s writers had peppered the piece with words like “savage,” “wild,” and “animalistic.” What bullshit. Show me the animal that kills for the thrill of watching something die. Why does the stereotype of the animalistic killer persist?
Because humans like it. It neatly explains things for them, moving humans to the top of the evolutionary ladder and putting killers down among mythological man-beast monsters like werewolves.

Armstrong’s writing abilities shined through here.
Thoughts on this one?

Until next time,

Iron Daughter

Book #2  by Julie Kagawa

I cannot express the love this series first wrapped me in, now I’ll share one of its beautiful quotes with you. Spoiler: romantic and cute as hell.

“Ash brushed my cheek with the back of his hand, catching a loose strand of hair between his fingers. “I’ve seen thousands of mortal girls,” he said softly, “more than you could ever count, from all corners of your world. To me, they’re all the same.” His finger slid below my chin, tilting my head up. “They only see this outer shell, not who I really am, beneath. You have. You’ve seen me without the glamour and illusions, even the ones I show my family, the farce I maintain just to survive. You’ve seen who I really am, and yet, you’re still here.” He brushed his thumb over my skin, leaving a trail of icy heat. “You’re here, and the only dance I want is this one.” Julie Kagawa

Mind Games

by Kiersten White

I just finished this book awhile ago and posted the review, some of those lines stuck with me, sooo here they are for you guys.

“I start at the beginning, mentally screaming every obscenity I can in alphabetical order. Then I start setting them to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

This is a book with mind readers remember. Not a bad solution.

“I turn and walk out, knowing exactly how many steps will take me away from that monster. Once again wishing I were Fia, Fia who could have killed him with her bare hands.
Fia who is impossible broken because she can do just that.”

Annie made me like her more here.
And finally,

“Their smiles are lies.
Most smiles are.”
Kiersten White, Mind Games

Until next time,
