Wanderlost

1

“Please, Bree?” Elizabeth’s eyes are like saucers now, as wide as an anime character’s. It’s a total put-on, but for just a second I see the under desperation behind it and it throws me.
She needs me. She needs me.

2

Time for a good ole Aubree-patented truth-stretching. I prop up on my knees, facing backward toward my audience.

 3

When we were lying in his bed, I felt like we opened up to each other, like we made promises, even if we didn’t say them out loud.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Cora Carmack’s Finding It.

Finding It (Losing It, #3)

1

I couldn’t seem to walk in a straight line. My path kept veering towards his. Probably because I was drunk. Or his muscles were magnetic. Both completely plausible options.

2

He cradled my jaw, and lifted my head back. Our eyes met, and his went from interested to confused in seconds flat.

3

 I wasn’t about to tell him that it wasn’t working because I was still depressed. This guy had seen more vulnerability from me in a few days that anyone else had seen in years.

4

We both knew the other was awake, but we lay still as if we weren’t. It was like a game to see how close we could get to the line without crossing it.

5

When you love someone, really love someone, it’s a lasting mark on your soul. There’s a lock on your heart that you’ll carry with you always.

Holding Up the Universe

1

So I ask you, What can high school do to me that hasn’t already been done?

2

My body might just explode into a million pieces of shimmering, glittering light.

3

… Jack saunters past like I’m invisible.
And maybe I am.
Like everyone else in his life.
Just one more person he can’t see.

Top 2 Things I Miss About Libby
by Jack Masselin
1. The way I feel when I’m with her. Like I just swallowed the sun and it’s shooting out of every pore.
2. Everything.

5

“…All the smiling and the faking and pretending to be what you think people want you to be. That’s what keeps you isolated. That’s what screws you up. You need to try being a real person.”

This week I’m featuring quotes from Sarah Morgan’s Sleepless in Manhattan.

Sleepless in Manhattan (From Manhattan with Love, #1)

1

Other people were deciding her future. Closed doors and conversations. People expecting her to wear a brave face.

2

She tried telling herself the reason she hadn’t slept much the night before was all down to nerves, excitement and the use of her mobile devices late into the night. Everyone knew that using screens at night was bad, didn’t they?

3

He could still feel the slight shake of her hand under his and smell the light summery perfume she always wore. Her perfume always messed with his senses. It made him want to strip her naked, throw her down in the nearest field of wildflowers and do very bad things.

4

Maria let go of his hands. “She made her choice, and now you have to make yours. You have to decide whether you love her enough to take the risk. Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Is she worth it, or would you rather go through life without her?”

This week I’m featuring quotes from Cassandra Clare’s, Sarah Rees Brennan’s, and Maureen Johnson’s The Bane Chronicles.

The Bane Chronicles

1

Warlocks were always born from that, from pain and demons.

2

Magnus managed to hide his surprise and raised his eyebrows in silent inquiry. He had not lived three hundred years without learning not to rise to every bait offered.

3

She did not look ridiculous. Her stern face forbade pity. She, like the house, was awe-inspiring in her ruin.

4

“I’ll be expecting it,” said Magnus as she clattered out on her high, weaponized heels. He admired anyone who made beauty and utility work together.

 5

But a stubborn light had come into Alec’s blue eyes. Despite his porcelain looks, Magnus could see the steel underneath. “No, that’s fine, this seems… fine.”

This week I’m featuring quotes from Christina Lauren’s Beautiful Secret.

Beautiful Secret (Beautiful Bastard, #4)

1

I dreamt of soft skin resting on my bare chest and kisses tasting of champagne.

2

It was one thing to dissect everything he said in a meeting or to a colleague when there was zero chance it had anything to do with me, but this? There was no way he wasn’t also thinking about what we did last night. Everything has a meaning today.

3

“Really? There’s no way you can cancel? I need to freak out, with your rational brain on hand.”

4

If someone had told me a month ago that I would meet a woman from the office, fall in love, and lose her all before spring truly arrived in London, I would consider the prospect ludicrous.

 The Number of Times I Have Listened for Niall Stella’s Footfalls: infinite.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars.

Shopaholic to the Stars (Shopaholic, #7)

1

The trouble is, Minnie hasn’t really absorbed the spirit of the word “please.”

2

And if by any chance we do go shopping and she asks me to shoplift something, I’ll… I’ll pretend I don’t understand and back away, And then run. Yes. Good plan.

3

In answer to the question Why am I shopping? I wrote Because I am a celebrity stylist now. I mean, you can’t argue with that.

4

For a moment I’m too shocked to reply. She looks livid. In fact, she looks in a terrible state. Her eyes are bloodshot, I now notice. Has something happened that I don’t know about?

This week I’m featuring quotes from Annabel Pitcher’s Silence is Goldfish.

Silence Is Goldfish

1

Something’s coming. I don’t know what or when, but it’s going to be huge.

2

I flare up because he’s gone too far this time. No one bad-mouths Mr. Goldfish in my presence and gets away with it.

3

“You’re pretty intense, you know that,” Henry says, looking at me looking at him with no doubt the warm eyes of a loving sister. I just about refrain from touching his arm in a gesture of sibling solidarity.

4

I’m not going to hide from the truth anymore.

5

I explain everything, my words captured by Mrs. Austin’s glistening ink. She traps the truth. Makes it real. Undeniable. Impossible to ignore.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Sarah Morgan’s Sunset in Central Park.

Sunset in Central Park (From Manhattan with Love, #2)

1

Peace and calm enveloped her. The prospect of an evening reading a book she’d been looking forward to for months lifted her mood.

2

Through the turmoil of her childhood, their beautiful garden had offered peace and sanctuary.

3

He was right. She needed to stop analyzing, and she needed to stop using her mother’s butterfly approach to a relationships as an example of normal.

4

People took that risk, time and time again. They jumped, even knowing that they could fall. She felt like a child shivering on the edge of a swimming pool, watching everyone else in the water, afraid to jump in herself in case she drowned.

5

Her emotions tumbled over themselves, so many different ones she could no longer untangle them. Fear, trepidation and excitement were there and, underneath, a deep, primal thrill that came  from the knowledge that this man loved her.

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

The One (The Selection, #3)

1

You are my most valuable asset, not her. If we lose you, we lose everything.”

2

I told myself I was crazy. Of course this was home. It was just the unfamiliarity of how this was unfolding. Everyone was here, even Kota. But Dad was gone, so it was only natural that it wouldn’t seem quite right.

3

“I do intend on giving you things, but that’s not what I mean. I’m going to love you more than any man has ever loved a woman, more than you ever dreamed you could be loved. I promise you that.”

4

We moved quickly to the end of the short hallway, and the first thing I noticed was the bright sun coming  through the window. Didn’t the sky know the world was falling apart? How could the sun shine today?

5

There we were, two little spots of light growing together, inseparable.
