Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables~ The Selection


Because I love sharing quotes from books, the more random the better, I decided to join Bookshelf Fantasies for Thursday Quotables to highlight some great quotes from the books I’m reading.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Kiera Cass’s The Selection.

The Selection (The Selection, #1)


Originally, I had been looking for friendly faces, girls I might want to hang out with while I was there. I’d never really had a friend.


I smiled back. Yes, it was all wrong, but some good would come out of this.


I looked over to my jar. I picked it up and felt the penny slide around, so lonely.
“Me, too,” I whispered. “Me, too.”

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ The Winner’s Crime

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I’m participating in Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts, hosted by Lexxie over at {un}Conventional Book Views again this week.

What is Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts? Well here’s a description from Lexxie’s site:

The idea of this feature is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Each week there is a link-up for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.

This week I am featuring The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. In this scene, Kestrel and Arin are fighting over her decision to marry the prince. {pg. 115}

The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)

“The law is written by the sword. The emperor holds the sword, not you, and if he says that I am not to be burdened by a tiresome post, who are we to disagree? Come, let’s not quarrel. The tea is nice isn’t it? A little too steeped, though. I might not finish my cup.”
Arin’s expression was turning dangerous. “So we’re to talk about tea?”
“Would you prefer chocolate?”
