Booking Through Thursday…

I missed last weeks question on Booking Through Thursday…so here it is…

Do you have a favorite quote from a book?

Wait! What?!? That’s like asking me if I like dessert…Seriously…I have about a bajillion favorites…lemme share just a few…

From Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard

He blinked at her like a Christmas tree, somehow having a difficult time registering the fact that she had clearly been crying in between his departure and his return.

He smelled of Laphroaig and something distinctively Gabrielian and potentially dangerous.

His eyes hardened into two icy blue jewels, and his voice cooled to the temperature of water gliding over a glacier.

From Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

“It’s taking all my self-control not to fuck you on the hood of this car, just to show you that you’re mine, and if I want to buy you a fucking car, I’ll buy you a fucking car”,  he growls.

I nuzzle up against him, eyes closed, my nose at his throat, drinking in his sexy Christian-and-spiced-musky-body-wash fragrance, my head on his shoulder.

From Grave Refrain by Sarah M. Glover

“You always fuck it up, trying to make yourself look superior with that Byronic sex appeal.”

With each thrust, with each one of his shuddering cries, he emblazoned the words to her body as he had done to her heart.

From Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

Instead of taking in the splendor of the emerging fall colors and the choppy Hudson River, his eyes scanned her face like it was a million miles of heaven.

By the time he could finally taste her, she’d gathered the sunshine and the bedspread in her hands.

From Supernova by C.L. Parker

The taunting little trail to the Promised Land was distracting, but she managed to pull her fingers away before they decided on a pilgrimage to find the forbidden fruit.

He really wanted to spoon with her, but he was afraid that forking would be the first thing that came to mind.

Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning

“One day you will kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”

“When you know who I am. Let me be your man.”


Just a little taste of my favorites from many books.

What are some of yours?!?

    Wow. Great post!

    I don’t know if I can choose. Probably every single word SR has ever written.

    I’m a huge Harry Dresden fan (Jim Butcher), so any
    time Harry is spewing snark at the villian is golden.

    There also fic authors whose words I adore. ❤

    I like this quote from the Fever series:

    -There are three people in this world: Those who don’t know, and don’t know that they don’t know; those who don’t know and do know they don’t know, and those who do know, and know how much they still don’t know.

    I love this quote from Alice Clayton, The Redhead Revealed:

    -And then I tasted nothing but his sweet lips, pressed firmly to mine, as I kissed him like it was my job.

    Just one more, this one’s from Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bones:

    -Hey, my body may be small, but my soul is large. It’s why I wear platforms, so I can reach the top of my soul.

    I could NEVER narrow down my favorite quotes. I’ve started keeping them all in a special file on my computer so I can swoon whenever I need to!
