THE THREE RULES:

♦ Thank the person who nominated you.

Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day).

♦ Nominate three new bloggers each day.

[Part 1] [Part 2]

♦ The last quote

I was between two quotes from the same book. Both are special to me and at this point I am going to break the rules and write them both.

The first one describes the love of my favorite couple, Maggie and Caleb through the eyes of their daughter Ava.

“I had watched my parents for what seemed like centuries. The way they existed so effortessly in each other’s world and space. They could go minutes without looking away from each other. They kissed constantly. They hugged all the time, stole touches and wrapped their fingers around the other’s wrist. I knew it was to feel their calm, to be wrapped in the little bit of bliss that their touch provided.”

The second is part of the Virtuoso marriage ceremony and I love it. I wish I could love that deeply.

“The love one feels for his significant is bigger than the ocean, deeper than any well, more powerful than any storm.”

“Never,” I assure her. “I’ll never leave you.”
Never will I concede to death when she’s in my grasp. This beautiful creature is my match. She’s burrowed her way into my heart, and into my soul. Finding out she was mine, and was the one I’d been searching for in the Human world, was intoxicating. Watching her at my feet as she was given to me was the most exquisite feeling in the world.”
Amelia Hutchins, Escaping Destiny

Ι am not into erotica but this series just blew my mind! I had low expectations and I was proved wrong because it was insanely awesome.

[Let Me Quote Friday] Be a Child again

friday quotes

This week’s quotes are from teen/children books I’ve loved and cherished. Enjoy~

“All the fear in the world, and the violence that comes from the fear, and the hatred that comes from the violence, and the lonliness that comes from the hatred. All the unhappiness, all the cruelty, it gathers like clouds in the air, and grows dark and cold and heavy, and falls like grey snow in thick layers over the land. Then the world is muffled and numb, and no one can hear each other or feel each other. Think how sad and lonely that must be.”

William Nicholson, Firesong

“There are some choices you can only make once. You can’t go back to where you made a choice and then take the other one.”
Mary Hoffman, City of Flowers

“Live in the present, remember the past, and fear not the future, for it doesn’t exist and never shall. There is only now.”

Christopher Paolini, Eldest

“Being a practiced liar doesn’t mean you have a powerful imagination. Many good liars have no imagination at all; it’s that which gives their lies such wide-eyed conviction.”
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

“All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

Have you read these books as a child? I believe they are more enjoyable now that we grew up and we can actually ‘understand’/

[Let Me Quote Friday] From my priority-to-read shelf

friday quotes

All these quotes are from books I plan on reading as soon as my exams are over. Thought I would make the difference and instead of posting quotes I’ve already read before, I posted a couple of quotes that caught my eye. I think I can’t wait to read all these books!

“His lips are on mine, hard and warm and pressing. The touch is electrifying, but not like I’m used to. This isn’t a spark of destruction, but a spark of life. As much as I want to pull away, I just can’t do it. Cal is a cliff and I throw myself over the edge, not bothering to think of what it could do to us both. One day he’ll realize I’m his enemy, and all this will be a far-gone memory. But not yet.”
Victoria Aveyard, Red Queen

“But there’s no way to avoid regret. Don’t let anybody tell you different. Regret is just life’s aftertaste. No matter what you choose, you’re gonna wonder if you shoulda done things different. I didn’t necessarily choose wrong. I just chose. And I lived with my choice, aftertaste and all.”
Amy Harmon, A Different Blue

“Funny how a single word can change everything in your life.”
“It is not funny at all. Steel is power. Money is power. But of all the things in all the worlds, words are power.”
Pierce Brown, Red Rising

“You overestimate the courage of those in power. They are often more interested in holding on to that power than in doing anything worthwhile with it.”
Sherry Thomas, The Burning Sky

“Letting yourself be vulnerable isn’t always a weakness. Sometimes it can be a conscious decision to draw the other person out.”
Penelope Douglas, Bully

Quoting makes me feel wiser but what about you? Let me know your favorite quotes and suggestions of books to read.

[Let Me Quote Friday] Firelight by Sophie Jordan

friday quotes

[His voice rumbles deep and smooth, like that day in the mountains, when emotions
flowed as thick as mist. “I’m sorry. I guess I got carried away. I thought…” He shakes his head, dragging both hands through his hair, clearly misunderstanding, reading something else on my face. “With you, I just…Jacinda, I didn’t mean—”
“Stop,” I say.
Because I can’t stand for him to apologize for kissing me.

Not when I wanted him to. Not when I want him to do it again. I drag a deep breath into my lungs, satisfied that I have regained control of myself and stopped the manifest.
This is good, I remind myself. My draki responds to him. My draki lives. Just a little too well. I’ll learn better control, I let myself think. Because I need him. He’s all I have. Not Cassian. I don’t need Cassian to rescue me.
I have Will. Here, he’s my way back to the sky.
Will keeps babbling, like he can’t help himself. “I don’t blame you for thinking I’m a
user, a player. I’m trying to get with you in the school stairwell like some—”
I stop his mouth with another kiss. Nothing smooth or deft. Just pull his face to mine and press my lips to his. Partly because I want to, and I can’t stop wanting to. Partly because I don’t need to be reminded how much I really should avoid him. And partly because I
have myself under control and want another try.]

Will & Jacinda Sophie Jordan, Firelight

[Let Me Quote Friday] Lux Series

friday quotes

Well these are just from Opal. There are too many funny quotes in the series so I gathered a few of my favorites just from Opal.

[A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.”

Annoyance flared deep inside me. “Don’t start with me, jerk-face.”]
Daemon & KatyJennifer L. Armentrout, Opal

[Dawson shifted, dropping his head into his hand. “Do you ever stop talking?”

“When I’m sleeping,” Blake replied.

“And when you’re dead,” Daemon threw back. “You’ll stop talking when you’re dead.”

Blake’s lips thinned. “Point taken.”]
Daemon, Dawson & Blake ― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Opal

[I shot him a look. “That bouncer was really big.”
His lips quirked. “Oh, Kitten, see, I try not to say bad things.”
“What?”
The grin spread. “I would say size doesn’t matter but it does. I would know.” he winked, and I let out a disgusted groan. He laughed.”]
Daemon & KatyJennifer L. Armentrout, Opal

[“I have the feeling we just made a deal with the devil, and he’s going to come back and want our first-born child or something.”

Daemon waggled his brows. “You want kids? Because you know, practice makes–“

“Shut up.” I shook my head and started walking.”]
