Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme where you share a few sentences from your current read in order to entice others to seek it out.

Want to participate?

Just grab your current read, open to a random page and share two teaser sentences that DO NOT include spoilers. Also include the title and author so that others can add it to their never ending TBR’s!


I’m currently on page 195 of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I am loving this book so much so far. I picked it up before bed on the 29th and it’s now the 2nd and I’m 2/3 of the way done. I’ve been reading every time I’ve had a free moment. I think this book may be destined for a spot on my Top 5 Favorite Contemporaries shelf. IT”S SO GOOD.


Today’s teaser is coming from page 166.

“I look up and see particles of dust drifting, crystal white and luminous, in the suspension of light. There are entire worlds that exist just beneath our notice of them.”

That’s what HE said Thursday is a bookish meme hosted by Chapter Break. To participate you just have to share a quote that one of your (many) book boyfriends said to his girl (who you wish you were). To learn more about this meme click here.


 

Today’s quote is coming from one of my favorite trilogies, The Infernal Devices. I’ve shared quotes from The Infernal Devices before but somehow I haven’t shared my favorite quote. But, today I am going to share it! This quote is the sweetest, most beautiful quote ever and every time I read it, my heart melts.

Jem said this to Tessa on page 430 of Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare:

“You speak of sacrifice, but it is not my sacrifice I offer. It is yours I ask of you,” he went on. “I can offer you my life, but it is a short life; I can offer you my heart, though I have no idea how many more beats if shall sustain. But I love you enough to hope that you will not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life-whatever it’s length-happy, by spending it with you. I want to be married to you, Tessa. I want it more than I have ever wanted anything else in my life.” He looked up at her through the veil of silvery hair that fell over his eyes. “That is,” he said shyly, “if you love me, too.”

Today I am sharing a quote from Light My Fire by Christie Ridgway. Light My Fire is the first book in the Rock Royalty series. This book was probably my favorite of the entire series and Ren and Cilla have to be one of my favorite couples ever.

Ren said this to Cilla on page 251:

“I couldn’t see myself loving anyone. Being with anyone. Having a future that was filled with love and family.”
“Ren—”
“Then you showed me how it could be. You showed me how sweet are the ties that I thought would never be for me. You made me want them. Fiercely.”

I have Wi-Fi! Which means than I can finally sit down to type up a post! Yay! Everything has been SO crazy so I apologize for being absent from the blog and for not posting a That’s What HE Said Thursday post in awhile. But, I have a really great quote for today. So, hopefully that will make up for my absence!

Today’s quote is coming from Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. This is a Julian Blackthorn quote. I think I’m starting to like Julian more than Jace…..especially when he says things that melt my heart. This quote is not directly spoken to his heroine…but she’s the one he’s talking about…and she’s in the room…so it counts. 😄

Julian said this on page 100 of Lady Midnight.

“When you love someone, they become a part of who you are. They’re in everything you do. They’re in the air you breathe and the water you drink and the blood in your veins. Their touch stays on your skin and their voice stays in your ears and their thoughts stay in your mind. You know their dreams because their nightmares pierce your heart and their good dreams are your dreams too. And you don’t think they’re perfect, but you know their flaws, the deep-down truth of them, and the shadows of all their secrets, and they don’t frighten you away; in fact you love them more for it, because you don’t want perfect. You want them. You want-”

 

Also, because I didn’t have Wi-Fi yesterday, I was unable to wish you all a Happy Star Wars day. So….HAPPY (belated) STAR WARS DAY! May the force be with you!

Today I am sharing a quote from Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. This is going to be a Will Herondale quote because Will is the best guy EVER. Will said this to Tessa on page 539.

 

“Marry me,” he said. “Marry me, Tess. Marry me and be Tessa Herondale. Or be Tessa Gray, or be whatever you wish to call yourself, but marry me and stay with me and never leave me, for I cannot bear another day of my life to go by that does not have you in it.”

Slumps are for Chumps (Day 1)

SLUMPSheader

Slumps are for Chumps is a month-long bookish meme that is being hosted by The Book Finch. If you would like to know more about this Book Blogging Adventure, click here. There are two prompts for today; you can either do a bookish April Fool’s Day joke or the Book Blogger Confessions tag. I thought the tag looked like a lot of fun so that’s what I decided to do. So, let the tag commence!


 

1. Which book, most recently, did you not finish?

Well, I have been in a major reading slump and have therefore left Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda and Lady Midnight unread for the last month. So, I guess those count as the last books that I didn’t finish???

2.Which book is your guilty pleasure?

Fifty Shades of Grey. I sometimes hate myself for how much I love this book/series but…..yeah.


 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Which book do you love to hate?

Allegiant. Every time that I talk to my friend Anna, we talk about how much we hate this book and it’s SOOO much fun to bash it together lol.

4. Which book would you throw into the sea?

The Maze Runner. This is the ONLY book that I have EVER dnf’d. UGH. I just hated it and I want it to drown.

5. Which book have you read the most?

The Host. I seriously read this book 3-5 times a year and that’s not counting the times that I just pick it up to reread my favorite parts.

6. Which book would you hate to receive as a present?

I would never hate to receive any book as a present. I honestly would just be thrilled that someone bought me a book.

7. Which book could you not live without?

I can not tell you how much I love Obsidian, the entire Lux series and Daemon Black. There just aren’t strong enough words to describe its greatness.

8. Which book made you the angriest?

Allegiant. *throws it against the wall repeatedly*

If I told you all the reasons why this book makes me angry, this post would go on forever.

9. Which book made you cry the most?

I cried constantly while reading Looking for Alaska. Honestly I just could not stop bawling.

10. Which book cover do you hate the most?

I HATE the cover for Vampire Academy. Hell, I hate the covers for every book within the Vampire Academy series. They’re just SOOOO bad.

Today I am not sharing a quote from Glass Sword. Shocking, I know. Instead I am going to share a quote from The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa. The Iron Queen is my favorite book within the Iron Fey series and this is one of my favorite quotes…….EVER. Ash said this to Meghan on page 295.

 

“To escape the emptiness. I was dead inside for so long. Not existing didn’t seem any different than what I was doing.” He buried his face in my shoulder, and I shivered. “It’s different now, though. I have something to fight for. I’m not afraid to die, but I don’t intend to give up, either.” His lips touched my hair, very lightly. “I won’t let anything happen to you,” he murmured. “You are my heart, my life, my entire existence.”
