It’s time for TGIF again, thanks to Ginger at GReads!
So this week’s TGIF topic is:
Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you’ve experienced in a book?
Wow, that’s actually kind of hard for me. I don’t usually keep track of quotes as I read (I just started to yesterday randomly) so I cheated a bit and used GoodReads to gather up some semi-swoony quotes. It’s the best I could do! 🙂
“In the afternoon, they stopped to eat on a rocky outcrop. Perry brushed a kiss on her cheek while she was chewing, and she learned that it was the loveliest thing to be kissed for no reason, even while chewing food. It brightened the woods, and the never sky, and everything.”
― Veronica Rossi, Under the Never Sky
“So let’s hear another one of your irrational fears.
Mia grasped me by the arms and pulled herself in to my chest, like she was burrowing her body into mine. “I’m scared of losing you,” she said in the faintest of voices.”
I pushed her away so I could see her face and kissed the top of her forehead. “I said ‘irrational’ fears. Because that’s not gonna happen.”
― Gayle Forman, Where She Went
“There’s that confidence again, that semi-infuriating easiness of his, the tilt of his head and the smile. but today it’s not infuriating. Today I like it, feel like it’s somehow rubbing off on me, like if I was around him enough I would never feel awkward or frightened or insecure.”
― Lauren Oliver, Delirium
“I wished the kiss could have gone on forever. Breaking the embrace, he ran a few fingers through my hair and down my cheek. He stepped back toward the door.
“I’ll see you later Roza.”
“At our next practice?” I asked. “We are starting those up again, right? I mean you still have things to teach me.”
Standing in the doorway, he looked over at me and smiled. “Yes. Lots of things.”
― Richelle Mead, Frostbite
I know I’m missing so many more good ones! These are some good ones for now 🙂
