quotation-marks4

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 Cindy Gerard’s Show No Mercy.

Show No Mercy (Black Ops Inc., #1)

1

Well, she wasn’t fearless now. She was gutless. After Argentina, she’d turned down stories baby reporters would wet their pants over..

2

Or maybe she’d just wanted to get close to him, she finally admitted.

3

And because it was a very big deal that he didn’t want to talk about it and because she didn’t want to make him wish he hadn’t bothered, she blinked back tears and hugged the stuffed dog to her breast. “Yeah. I’m very attached.”

4

And he stayed put. He sensed something intimate and alarming growing between them and he knew he should nip it off. He hadn’t talked this much since… hell, he couldn’t remember ever talking this much andyet every time he was alone with her, she somehow got him to sing like a canary.

5

He wouldn’t let it. And he would not watch the woman he loved suffer at the hands of a madman. Not again.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Nora Robert’s Island of Glass.

Island of Glass (The Guardians Trilogy, #3)

1

He broke off a moment, took a breath. “You see there, how Annika laid the flowers and stones on every grave here. On my mother’s she put them down in the shape of a heart…. So Annika came out here and gave them this respect, this sweetness, this remembrance. How could I not come and stand here, even knowing they’re not here.”

2

“Change a moment, change an eon.” Doyle stared into the fire, the shadow and light. “I’ve thought the same. I failed, and the man he might have been was lost. The man I might have been was lost with him.”

3

The island went absolutely still below her, like something caught in a ball of glass. All color and shape without movement. A painting spread over sea and sky.

This week I’m featuring quotes from Rachel Caine’s Ink and Bone.

Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)

1

You’re never coming back. Brendan’s words suddenly returned to him. They were prophetic; already his family seemed like a fading dream. He felt good here.
He felt right.

2

Glain, on the other hand, looked pallid in the cold, damp air, with hectic spots of red high in her cheeks. It occurred to Jess for the first time that she was walking through her own country’s men and women, and yet seen as an intruder.

3

Portero gave a regretful sigh. “The books come first, sir. Isn’t that how it should be? Books before men?”

This week I’m featuring quotes from James Dashner’s The Kill Order.

The Kill Order (Maze Runner, #0.5)

1

Mark just hoped that one day it could all go back to normal. Maybe even during his lifetime.

2

Mark closed his eyes, tried to tamp down the rage that was building inside him like a nuclear reaction. How much could he take in one day?

3

Venturing out into the complete unknown. He doesn’t know which is stronger, the excitement or the fear.

4

Mark started dragging him down the hallway, aware on  some level that he himself had crossed into territory from which he wasn’t sure he’d come back.

I am joining up with yet another new-to-me meme this week. 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 Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun.

I'll Give You the Sun

I chose 5 random quotes that I loved from this one. Two are from Jude’s POV, 3 are from Noah’s.

 1
There’s something else I’m not noticing: He seems familiar to me somehow, like we’ve met before, but I’ve no idea where or when.

2
Do you have to be so you all the time, Noah?

3
He pops the remaining piece of donut in his mouth and closes his eyes as he slowly chews. I can see the rapture taking him over. Jesus. That must be some donut. I tear my eyes off him, hard to do.

4
I never want to speak to her again and make this very clear. Her voice is static. She is static.

5
In a flash we’re through the door, across the street and into the woods, running for no reason and laughing for no reason and totally out of breath and out of our minds when Brian catches me by my shirt, whips me around, and with one strong hand flat against my chest, he pushes me against a tree and kisses me so hard I go blind.
