Or that you've simply found it beautifulDoesn't have to be long or anything.


“You’re here.”

“I am.”

Jason boldly took in the way she looked.

“I take it you don’t often wear that dress in court.”

“Probably not a good idea.”

He grinned. “Yes, I can imagine it would be somewhat awkward standing before a judge who has a huge hard-on.”

“Is that the effect this dress has?”

Taylor’s eyes traveled downward, to the zipper of Jason’s pants, and he was momentarily caught off guard by her bluntness.

Her eyes sparkled, amused.

“You’re blushing, Jason. That’s cute.”

- Just the sexiest man alive by Julie James

"This idea, it wrap around me like a warm blanket, it settle my shaking bone, it calm my heart, and I understand. All the time you fighting, you think only of how to survive. All the time you survive, you wonder why you don't die. But now my life can be something different. Now, in America, I don't have to fight. I don't have to survive. I can chose a new thing: to live."
Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick p. 208

I was waiting for this mini challenge all day, I'm so glad that you wanted to include this one, thanks! :) I'm reading "All our pretty songs" by Sarah McCarry and here's the link for the quotation, I hope you find it as endearing and powerful as I did!

Here's a quote from Where'd You Go, Berndatte? Such a funny book.

"Your mission statement says Galer Street is based on global 'connectitude.' (You people don't just think outside the box, you think outside the dictionary!)"

Go Flash Go - Read, Rinse, Repeat said...

Hello, Nea! I'm impressed that you are awake at 3 AM! I am having so much fun with my first Read-a-Thon, although I must say that I never realized how slowly I read until I see everyone else has knocked out 3, 4, or more books. I'm still working on my second!

My quote is from School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins, and I hope it gives everyone a little chuckle.

My favorite quote from Special A, vol. 12 I read earlier: when Bad Guys attempt to hurt Hikari (the heroine) as a way to get to Kei (the hero) and he knocks them all to the ground: "Who said Hikari's my weakness? Hikari makes me a thousand times stronger." mrs.soule(at)gmail(dot)com

I'm currently reading Splintered by A.G. Howard and am really enjoying it. It has grabbed me from the first page.."I've been collecting bugs since I was ten; it's the only way to stop their whispers. Sticking a pin through the gut of an insect shuts it up pretty quick"

And I added it to my update post too...

Here is a quote from the book I'm currently reading, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, by Christopher More:

“It's hard for me, a Jew, to stay in the moment. Without the past, where is the guilt? And without the future, where is the dread? And without guilt and dread, who am I?”

Here is a quote from Catherine called Birdy :
" I have heard that if lovers meet a pig while walking, it is certain to doom their love. If only I could arrange for them to meet a pig. Or even better a weasel."

Isa said...

This is one of my favourite poems from Where the Sidewalk Ends:
"My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green.
But I’m told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it’s silver when it’s wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet."
I'm really enjoying the readathon, hope you are too! :D

"We put away our mirrors. We stopped combing our hair. We forgot about makeup. Whenever I powder my nose it just looks like frost on a mountain. We forgot about Buddha. We forgot about God. We developed a coldness inside us that still has not thawed. I fear my soul has died. We stopped writing home to our mothers. We lost weight and grew thin. We stopped bleeding. We stopped dreaming. We stopped wanting. We simply worked, that was all." - "The Buddha in the Attic" by Julie Otsuka

Okay, here's mine, from Ready Player One:

"Going outside is highly overrated."

I wouldn't normally consider it a good quote, but it seems fitting for a readathon ;)

Tami said...

My quote is one that made me think: "Humility is not a characteristic to be deliberately acquired, like a new suit or an app on your smartphone. Rather, humility is a by-product of spiritual growth, much like rinse water is a by-product of laundry." From "Peas, Beans and Corn" by Jennifer Wixson

Thanks for hosting a fun challenge!

Here's my quote: ‘Along with the desicion to accept entrants to the Guild from outside the Houses, it had been decided that family and House names would no longer be used during Guild ceremonies. All who became magicians were expected to risk their lives to defend the Allied Lands, so all should be shown the same level of respect’

Love this challenge :) It's just 10pm here now. The quote I picked is kind of long so there's a picture of it on my blog. I didn't even think about this being an option for a challenge, I just snapped the pic because the quote stuck with me.

Here is my quote from Give Me Everything You Have by James Lansdun:

"If you read naively, as I mostly do, to make sense of your life, rather than for more sophisticated aesthetic or scholarly reasons, then certain writers inevitably become your own Fluchthelfer, helping you over your own walls, whether to escape reality or, as I prefer to see it, to find your way into it."

Gosh there are heaps of quotes. I'm currently reading Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson and the best quote so far...

"Kill them. Kill them now. no-one will know. No-one need ever know. Kill them out amongst the rocks and the cold and the snow and the darkness and their bodies will never be found. Not ever. You won't get caught. You can do it. You want to do it. DO IT!"

the New Zealand start time was 1am & having had a tiring day, missed the start but I'm making a little progress in my first book in this hour.

Nothing profound, but some beautiful writing from Sinners and the Sea, by Rebecca Kanner:

"He turned and ran across the flat, sun-scorched earth so quickly that he sent up a cloud of dust. It seemed to pursue him as he got smaller and smaller and eventually disappeared into it."

Cy-V said...

My quote! (here)

“It’s really too bad that so much crumby stuff is a lot of fun sometimes.”

So yeah, this is about liking girls, respecting them if you like them and sexual fantasies. Or, something. Either way, he thinks about that if you really like someone (a girl), you shouldn’t spray water in her face. Or something ;-) . It is preceded by this:

“Sometimes I can think of very crumby stuff I wouldn’t mind doing if the opportunity came up. I can even see how it might be quite a lot of fun, in a crumby way, and if you were both sort of drunk and all, to get a girl and squirt water or something all over each other’s face. The thing is, though, I don’t like the idea. It stinks, if you analyze it.”

Don’t be too hard on yourself kid, if you find a girl who likes to get water or something squirted all over her face and you want to squirt water or something all over her face and you both decide that’s ok, go for it. XD

Ok, it’s time for my nap and some coffee I think. (^_^;)\

"Trains howl away across the valley. The sun goes down long and red. All the magic names of the valley unrolled Manteca, Madera, all the rest. Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgundy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries."
