“‘Jealousy is a childish, petty emotion.’ The caliph switched the single shamshir to his left hand in a single fluid motion. ‘I don’t feel jealousy. I feel rage.'”

-Khalid, The Rose and the Dagger

Holy shit. I laughed so hard when I saw this quote. I think this is the moment I truly feel in love with Khalid. Savage level 100%.

Quotey Tuesday #5: Empire of Storms

Quotey Tuesday is a weekly meme where we share our favorite quote from the book we’re reading that week!

“Her body betrayed her. Began Shaking.

She knew the pain. Knew what it’d feel like, what it’d sound like.

Her dreams are still full of it.

And even bracing herself, even clamping down hard, there was nothing to prepare for the crack, the sting, the pain. She did not let herself cry out, only hissed through her teeth.

“Start over,” Meave merely ordered over the girl.

So Cairn did.

Again.

Again.

Again.

They started over nine times before Aelin finally screamed. The blow had been right atop another one, tearing skin down to the bone.

Again.

Again.

Again.

Again.”

-Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

This scene. This. Fricking. Scene.

When I saw how Meave is going to whip her, WHIP HER (only ToG fans would get this), I truly and utterly lost it and started sobbing in despair.

I hate you Sarah J. Maas.

Quotey Tuesday #3: I Will Not Be Shattered

Advertisements

Quotey Tuesday is a weekly meme where we share our favorite quote from the book we’re reading that week!

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

-Juliette, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Anyone who truly loves to read would relate to this quote…and the truth that holds in this quote is also slightly…disturbing.

Now, many of us have friends. Just because we love reading doesn’t mean we have suffered like Juliette did in Shatter Me. But all of us, deep down, know that in a way, all readers use books to fill the loneliness. And in a way, we will always choose literature over reality.

Quotey Tuesday #2: Too Much is Always Poison

Advertisements

Quotey Tuesday is a weekly meme where we share our favorite quote from the book we’re reading that week!

‘“He locked you up because he knew—the bastard knew what a treasure you are. That you are worth more than land or gold or jewels. He knew, and wanted to keep you all to himself.”

The words hit me, even as they soothed some jagged piece in my soul. “He did—does love me, Rhysand.”

“The issue isn’t whether he loved you, it’s how much. Too much. Love can be a poison.” And then he was gone.” ‘

-Rhysand, A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

This quote is beautiful, real, and saddening all at the same time. Sarah (god bless this amazing author) wrote so many beautiful quotes that touched me in unthinkable ways, and made me think. This quote is one of them. We all know (and have no doubt) that Tamlin loved Feyre no less than Rhysand. My mother always told me: everything turns sour when you over do it. We were all there – we were all there with Feyre when we fall in love with Tamlin in A Court of Thorns and Roses. And you’ll be a liar if you said that not once, not once in the rest of the series did you think that if Tamlin realized his mistakes earlier, he would’ve actually had a chance with Feyre.

And I think that is what made this all so hard to swallow.

Triangle love can be annoying when you really can tell that the second guy doesn’t have a chance, which makes it unrealistic, cheesy, and a bad book in general. But in situations like this, it’s so realistic that…we don’t know how to feel anymore. It’s life. Everyone loved Rhysand, but we all can’t help but feel bad for Tamlin either. Because deep down, we all know, he truly, truly loved her.

I have to give it to Sarah, no book, and I mean no book, have ever made me doubt love before.

It’s really funny how life ‘works out’ in the end.

Quotey Tuesday #1: Tucker’s Self Control

Advertisements

Quotey Tuesday is a weekly meme where we share our favorite quote from the book we’re reading that week!

“Tucker never takes it too far, though I sometimes want him to. he’ll kiss me, kiss me, kiss me until I start tugging at our clothes, wanting as much contact as I can get. Then he groans, grabs my wrists, and moves away from me, closing his eyes and taking deep breaths for a minute.

I think he seriously believes that deflowering an angel could mean an eternity in fiery hell. “

-Clara, Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

This is from Unearthly by Cythia Hand, the Unearthly series. I love this quote! It’s so cute how Tucker had to control himself around Clara. It just makes me love them so much more.

(Seriously I totally ship them. Also, I officially am in love with all blue trucks out there 😉)
