The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson p.270

I see his shadow looming, growing darker. “While you make soup, I- I’ve decided to pass out again.”

The character is gravely ill, and keeps passing out. The person looming is her lover.

The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson p.74

“I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it’s the most painful kind of hope there is. It can be ripped away so easily. By indifference. By death. By… the need for a political marriage. Or maybe that last one is just me.”

Said by a queen to her lady in waiting.

Night Sins by Tami Hoag p.88

“It’s a starting place, Chief. We’ve got to start somewhere.”
“Yeah. If only we knew where we were going.”

The King’s Men by Nora Sakavic p.182

“The games will still be there tomorrow. I’m here right now, I’m hungry, and I’m tired of you ignoring me in my own room.”

The Raven King by Nora Sakavic p.295

“This isn’t a team,” Neil said. “It’s a cult.”

This seemed a lot funnier in context. The hero is talking about his opponents in a college-level sport that the author created. It’s a bit like a cross between lacrosse and basketball. The opponents all wear black at all times, sit the same way, eat the same way, and rarely speak out of turn.

The Raven King by Nora Sakavic p.142

It (the Edgar Allen University fight song) wasn’t upbeat and confident like any other song Neil heard at games. This was a dark and heavy tune, an intimidating message of death and domination. The Ravens took their image seriously. Neil guessed they had a lot of intensive counseling in their futures.

Cover blurb: The Foxes are a fractured mess, but their latest disaster might be the miracle they’ve always needed to come together as a team. The one person standing in their way is Andrew, and the only one who can break through his personal barriers is Neil. Except Andrew doesn’t give up anything for free and Neil is terrible at trusting anyone but himself. The two don’t have much time to come to terms with their situation before outside forces start tearing them apart. Riko is intent on destroying Neil’s fragile new life, and the Foxes have just become collateral damage. Neil’s days are numbered, but he’s learning the hard way to go down fighting for what he believes in, and Neil believes in Andrew even if Andrew won’t believe in himself.

The Foxhle Court by Nora Sakavic p.132

Their waitress passed out bowls and set a pile of napkins in the middle of the table. As soon as she left, Andrew scattered the napkins with an impatient hand. Underneath them all was a pile of packets full of pale yellow powder.

This is from a 3 book series The Girl pushed me into reading. It’s angsty, and full of interesting characters.

Undead and Unappreciated by Mary Janice Davidson p.34

She’d tried – repeatedly – to kill me, but worse, she’d killed other vampires to get to me. And she’d ruined my shirt. She had to go.

Slasher Girls and Monster Boys p.8

The power of the mind was something we experimented with on Friday night sleepovers. Also light-as-a-feather-stiff-as-a-board, and the Ouija, before kate-Marie’s dad burned it in her backyard. We also tried texting boys alluring emoticons and, on one brave night, posted photos of our faceless boobs to a message board, but hen took them down fast when the comments got scary.

This is an anthology. The teaser is from The Birds of Azalea Street by Nova Ren Suma.

Gifts You Can Make by the Editors of Sunset Magazine p.48

Personal gifts from a garden are easy, especially if you start preparations several weeks ahead of giving time.

“Easy”?

The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett p. 161

Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying.

The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett p.124

Dragons!

Ever since he was two years old he had been captivated by the pictures of the fiery beasts in The Octarine Fairy Book. His sister had told him they didn’t really exist, and he recalled the biter disappointment. If the world didn’t contain those beautiful creatures, he’d decided, it wasn’t half the world it ought to be. And then later he had been bound apprentice to Ninereeds the Masteraccount, who in his gray mindedness was everything that dragons were not and there had been no time for dreaming.

Over the Edge by Suzanne Brockmann p.367

He saw her fire, and realized. It was a doll she was holding. He was going to die for a fking plastic doll.

Over the Edge by Suzanne Brockmann p.207

Because she’d been drunk, she reminded herself as she found herself inches from his well-muscled, half-naked, sinfully attractive body. Too drunk to know that inside that deliciously wrapped package lived a complete and total jerk.
