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

The Elite (The Selection, #2)

1

That feeling, that indefinable something, coursed through me. As dejected as I’d felt, as embarrassed as I’d been, when he offered me that moment, I had to take it.

2

Our eyes met, and everything else felt distant for the moment. It was comforting finding myself in that bubble again, the place that Aspen and I had created for ourselves years ago.

3

I was almost grateful for Celeste at that moment. She might have been a hundred things that irritated me, but she was also impossible to intimidate. I could use some of that.

4

I wished I could erase everything else and hold on to this moment, this brief second when he and I knew how much we meant to each other.

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

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.

2

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

3

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

The Burning Page (The Invisible Library, #3)

1

 Li Ming waited politely, with an air of someone who would of course be glad to leave, rather than eavesdrop on a matter that didn’t concern him. But his silver eyes, as bright and metallic as his hair or his fingernails, showed a confidence that he would be allowed to stay.

2

This was getting more emotionally fraught than Irene enjoyed. The cramped quarters didn’t help, as they were now standing extremely close.

3

Although Vale might extract more truth from the Fae while he was still half-asleep, that approach risked missing some vital bit of information.

4

There were all her friends and family who were in danger. And then there was Zayanna, who, barring a miracle and a very implausible explanation, had lied to her.
She’d liked Zayanna.

5

It was the sort of faint odour that might come from a piece of decaying food somewhere in one’s home, which couldn’t be precisely tracked down, but which would slowly infiltrate the entire place. It suggested unwholesomeness.

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

1

We look at each other in our Bogart hats and it’s like we’re communicating, even though we’re completely silent.
I’m trying to let him know what I’m about to do.
I’m hoping he can save me, even though I realize he can’t.

 2

I like thinking all alone in the auditorium even when there is no violin music.

3

I didn’t like it at all, but I didn’t say anything.
Why?
I should have said something– not just to stick up for myself, but because I think Asher wanted me to save him.

The Masked City (The Invisible Library, #2)

1

Kai understood obedience to his elders and superiors, this speech tried to play on the same urges. A dragon could resist it. Humans would be far less capable of fighting back.

2

It wasn’t the dark that bothered her– it was what might be hidden within it.

3

Kai had only nodded, but his eyes had become inhuman in that moment, savage and satisfied.

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

1

 What my parents never considered is that I just wanted a choice.

2

It takes a moment for me to recognize the symptoms, but my heels are bouncing and my stomach is fluttering. I’m finally excited to be out!

3

Not only have I been caught with someone I had no right to be kissing– and not only was it the greatest moment of my life– but he’s rejecting me.
In front of everyone.

4

How many time can our emotions be tied to someone else’s– be pulled and stretched and twisted– before they snap? Before they can never be mended again?

Everything, Everything

1

The more I watch, the more I want to know.

2

I tell myself there’s no harm in lying to my mom. I tell myself I won’t get sick. I tell myself there’s no harm in friendship.
That Carla is right, and love can’t kill me.

3

Every moment I spend with him I learn something new. I become someone new.

4

I’m on my way home. I’ll remain trapped there forever.
I’m alive and I don’t want to be.

5

So if I could change one moment, which one would I pick? And would I get the results I want? Would I still be Maddy?

The Unexpected Everything

1

He’d always been there, so it was like it never occurred to me to really look at him, not realizing that one day he might be gone.

2

And I didn’t want to compare the two, but the proof of how different Clark and Topher were was right in front of me– in the very fact that Clark was hanging out with my friends.

3

It was mostly me– everything was just feeling so good and so right that I was having more and more trouble remembering why I’d decided that was all I could do.

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.
