Quotes From Books

While reading, sometimes I just have to write down something so I can see it often.

Here are some I’ve saved:

“I tucked his words away like a piece of candy into my pocket, to take out later and savor.”

~Hourglass by Myra McEntire


“They held hands, soaking wet, wearing inflated innertubes around their waists like misplaced halos, leaving water droplets in their wake.”

~Skinny by Diana Spelcher


‘”Of course you may say a few words. My colleagues would be honored. I am naturally too important to feel honored, but I would be mildly amused.”‘

~And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer


“I am in my own world of misreading people, reaching out to them in an awkward, overplanned way that blows up big-time, then retreating back into my just-me existence, while they go around telling anyone who will listen what a tard I am.”

~The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To by D.C. Pierson


“You know that expression, “It hit me like a ton of bricks”? It’s true. Guys don’t talk about stuff like that. We just lie under the pile of bricks.”

~Looking For Alaska by John Green


“Horror Movies never tell you that–about how most of the time when you’re faced with the unspeakable, the biggest thing you take away from the experience is the need to find some indoor plumbing.”

~Betrayals byLili St. Crow


I think those were in kind of a reverse order of when I read them. Do you have any fun book quotes you had to keep?
