Favorite Book Quotes
Pretty much after every review back in the day I’d attach a favorite quote from most of the books I read. Going through all of these is going to suck lmao. But I’ll start with the graphics I made for some cause that’ll just be easier.
These are from A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers
I use to put so much effort into my book reviews lol. I miss having Photoshop 7 around; Photoshop CC and I didn’t get along as well (and we still dont).
The Vines by Christopher Rice
“I would like a… I would…”
Like a what? he wants to ask her. A Bible? A gun? A Valium?
Ghost House by Alexandra Adornetto
“Sorry if my attire isn’t appropriate.” “On the contrary,” he said.
“Your attire is perfect… and practical.” “Thank you. As you can see, it took weeks of planning.”
“And yet looks so effortless.”
“How do you know that for sure?” I asked, out of genuine curiosity and partly because I wanted to avoid having to respond.
“What do you think love really feels like?”
“I don’t think love is just a feeling,” Joe said. “I think it’s a commitment. Lust is a feeling, that that’s what hits you first. But you have to wait until it passes. Once it’s gone, what are you left with? That’s the real stuff, underneath.” He looked to the ceiling. “When I get married one day, I want to be so committed to my wife that no matter what happens I’ll never leave her. We might fight, she might cheat, we might sleep in separate rooms for a whole year. I but I won’t walk away. So when I tell a girl I love her, I’m going to really mean it.”
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
“You laugh in your sleep.”
My head snaps up from my lunch. So he does know.
“Yeah, don’t get excited,” he says, smiling to himself.
“It’s not cute. It’s kind of creepy. More like a cackle. You are whacked, Book Licker.”
Naturally, Charlie by S.L. Scott
“What kind of guy do you take me for? You think I’d nap with one woman then have dinner with another? What a low opinion you must have of me.”
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
“Oh, thank God,” Jared said. “I couldn’t work how to hit you and hold on to you at the same time.”
“Hit me?” Kami croaked. “I’ve had enough of this abusive behavior. And we’ve only just met! You’re making a terrible first impression.”
“Where are your clothes?”
“He was doing some — Zen jogging,” she claimed.
Jared flicked her an incredulous glance. “Yes,” he said slowly. “Zen jogging. I wasn’t that many clothes because — that’s part of the process. You’re meant to commune with the elements. Normally, I wouldn’t have worn my jeans, but I put them on because I know the English are modest people.”
“If I beat my head against this desk, maybe this will make sense,” Angela murmured.
“He punched me in the face,” said Ash, who understandably did not seem to find the situation humorous at all. “And then he yelled at me for sleeping with our personal trainer!”
“I was told break up scenes were a good way to distract people,” Jared said with beautiful simplicity.
“Ash looked so surprised,” Holly said. “He had no idea what was going on. He said, ‘I didn’t sleep with our personal trainer! We don’t even have a personal trainer!'”
Holly was laughing. “Jared told her he used to be an exotic dancer in San Francisco.”
“My body is a gift from God,” Jared said gravely. “Except for my hips, which are clearly a gift from the devil.”
I’ll just stop here lol.
I have a ton of quotes highlighted from A Court of Mist and Fury but I haven’t written that review yet so…. *shrug*.
