The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

“We ate and slept in the big building. Between five and six hundred people bled out in there, but the floor and walls had been bleached and the cots they died on had been burned. It still smelled faintly of the Pestilence (a little like soured milk), and the bleach hadn’t removed all the bloodstains. There were patterns of tiny spots covering the walls and long, sickle-shaped stains on the floor. It was like living in a 3-D abstract painting.”

Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)

“Wolfe stared at her for a long few seconds, then nodded sharply. ‘Correct. Step back, Postulant Seif. On the highest possible level, the Library exists because each nation of the world benefits from it, and because the Library favors none, relies in none. It took time to free ourselves from the tyranny of politics, kings, and priests; it took time to assemble the wealth and the force to defend what we have. But most of all, it took a miracle. And what was that miracle?'”

The Elite (The Selection, #2)

“I’d only learned the solid truth of the history of Illea since I’d been at the palace. For some reason, the story of our country’s origin was mostly passed on orally. I’d heard several different things , and none of them was as complete as the education I’d received in the last few months.”

Scrappy Little Nobody

“When people would call the house and ask ‘Is Kendrick there?’ I’d act irritated and say, ‘There are four Kendricks here, you’ll have to be more specific.’ I always knew who they meant.
I still idolized him. He still thought I was a liability at best and figured that dictating my social life was in everyone’s best interest.”
