Samantha is back to share with us her favorite quotes from the books! Yesterday, she shared with us her favorite scenes; her favorite quotes had to be put into a separate post because there are just so many! And I don't blame her!
Hey y'all! My name is Samantha, but I go by Sam, or any other nickname of the name Samantha! I love my middle name way more though, which is Rose! I am currently a high school freshman. I love to read and hang out with my friends! :) I want to go into publishing, editing, or anything to do with books when I get older. My mom read to my brother and I when I was younger and I think that was where I got my love of reading!Find Samantha Online: Blog | Twitter | Goodreads
Here are a few little facts about me:
• I read up to 4 books a week! If I can!
• I am slowly going insane... I blame my friends
• My goal is to be in yearbook by the end of next year
• I love chocolate!
• If you give me books or food, I will be your best friend. Especially if it has caramel in it.
• If you asked what my favorite book is, I couldn't possibly tell you!
So since I gave my copy of Angelfire and Wings of the Wicked to a friend and don't have it back yet, I would like to share some of my favorite quotes from Courtney Allison Moulton's books. I loved both of these books and I hope everyone reads them and loves them just as much as everyone on this newly formed site has! :)
Beware, these quotes have no order, no page number, just words and pure awesomeness. All are from the people who have taken their time to put them on Goodreads.com and that is all I can do without my books! May/will contain sexiness, sweetness, and spoilers!
So watch it! :) Most of these are from the main character Ellie's POV.
“I have a ninja sitting shotgun. Of course, I'm tense.”
“And every time you die, a little piece of me dies with you.”
“I am so sick of you pulling this Batman shit on me!”
“I guess it's true that love makes you blind."“ No," my mom said. "It doesn't make you blind. You're very, very aware of everything about the one you truly love, whether you know it from what your eyes tell you or your heart. So no, love doesn't make you blind. It paralyzes you until you can't breathe or run away from it.”
“He reached forward to cup my cheek, the touch surprising me. "Please
understand that no matter what I am or what has happened in the past, I am
yours. I am devoted to you above all else, including my own life."I exhaled after holding my breath for what felt like forever. "That's pretty heavy, Will." His expression was impassioned, and the backs of his fingers brushed the side of my neck. “It is a burden I am glad to carry.”
“And I am your guardian, your bodyguard, sworn to protect and defend you. And you are making my job excruciatingly difficult.”
“I don't want to die and come back and not remember your face, Will. I don't want to spend another lifetime not knowing who you are!”
“I scowled and stabbed begrudgingly at the stack before scooping up a bite with my fork, but it toppled over and plopped into my lap. I groaned and banged my head on the counter.Mom frowned, 'You have to be smarter than the pancakes, Ellie.”
“ Ell?" Kate asked. "You okay?"“ Yeah, I thought I saw a spider." I shook my fist at Will and scowled.
"A big, really ugly one. Sorry.”
“I hate... I hate when you die. It destroys me. I know I have no right to be so upset, because I'm not the one losing my life, but it breaks me apart inside. I'm not very good with words, and I don’t know how to explain to you how I feel. I get lonely when you aren't with me. I miss you. And every time you die;a little piece of me dies with you.”
“I knew he was your boyfriend. Ellie Marie, I can't believe you lied to me, you hooker!”
“Will, I'm in love with you. You're the only one who understands what I go through every day, the only one I can share this world with.”
“Mom turned but did a double take. "Where did you get that necklace from?"I touched the pendant. "A friend."“ A boy?"Yikes. "He's a friend who's a boy."Her mouth twitched in amusement and her gaze left the necklace. "First roses, and now a necklace? Are you sure Landon isn't your boyfriend?"“ This wasn't from him, Mom."“ So you have two boyfriends?"“ No, Mom!" I almost shouted. "Neither of them is my boyfriend. Trust me. They're just boys who are friends. No connecting of words going on... or connecting of anything else, for that matter."She stared at me. "Hmm." Then she left my room. She was so weird sometimes.”
“I am Ragnuk, and I am going to eat you now.”
“You know, for someone who believes in me so much, you really have no faith in me at all.”
“Ivar grabbed hold of my shoulders, swung me into a strung-up fishing net, and then smashed me into a set of shelves. Clutter rained down on me, and I fought my way to the surface, clawing free of the net. Ivar's fingers curled around my shirt and lifted me until I was eye level with her.
"I'm going to enjoy killing you," she sneered. "And when you come back, I'll enjoy killing you again. If the Enshi doesn't eat your soul, I'll gladly eat your heart."
Instead of replying, I stabbed her in the gut with a Khopesh. Her eyes bulged and she dropped me. I pulled the flaming sword out and slashed, but she caught my wrist before my blade could catch her skin, and she hissed, pulling her lips back viciously.
"Wrong move." Her flesh healed shut with only an ugly marbled scar left behind. She lashed her black power at me, striking me across the chest like a whip, and I staggered back. I shook off the blow and saw her lunge for me through the smoky remains of her attack. My own power detonated in a deafening explosion of white and collided with her. It blew her through the cabin, and she crashed through the wall and flew back out on the other side of the deck in a storm of fiberglass and steel.”
Wings of the Wicked Quotes:
“My kind of fun just doesn't include making fun of vertically challenged people”
“I'm so sorry for everything. I never wanted to hurt you or make you doubt me. I need you to trust me. I need you. And I love you. I want you. You know I do. I'll never stop doing any of those things until the day I die for you."
“Imagine what would have happened if you hadn’t heard her coming.” “ Screw you,” I growled, and grabbed his collar to drag him out of the stall. “In a public restroom, Ellie? Really? Didn’t think you were that kind of girl.”
“I'm a reader, not a fighter.”
“Good-bye, Cadan,” I said, backing out the door.
“If I hear anything new, I’ll come to you.”
“Be careful,” I warned. “My guard dog bites.”
He grinned, and that impish gleam returned to his eyes.
“And you don’t?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know.”
“Don’t get me excited.”
“He stepped forward and wrapped his arms around the small of my back, tugging me to his chest. I threw my arms around his shoulders, sliding my nails up and down his neck gently. “Stay with me. And with Nathaniel and Lauren. All day. Be happy today.”
He bent down and kissed me richly. “Each time I look at you, I want to see a smile on your beautiful face.”
“Will you be looking at me a lot?”
“I’m always stealing glances,” he confessed. “You rarely notice.”
“So are you and Marcus finally getting along?" he asked.
"She threatened to castrate me," Marcus said.
I nodded. "Sure did."
Will blinked and stiffened uncomfortably. "Oh."
“That's not nice, Ell," Kate scolded. "Boys need those.”
“A demonic reaper asked to be my valentine and then killed his crazy ex-girlfriend to save my life. Tomorrow I was starting up antipsychotic meds.”
“I've even got one for you, too, Ellie."
“Wow, thank you, Marcus."
“The second one was supposed to be mine," he admitted with a shrug. "But since I don't want to look like a jackass, I'll give it to you. See what a nice guy I am?"
I rolled my eyes at him. "God, Marcus, you're the sweetest guy ever."
He grinned stupidly. "Actually, that's not true. I got it for you to begin with, because you two are attached at the hip and I figured you'd show up together. You're so predictable.”
So I think I have a problem... Oh well! I hope y'all enjoyed those! That was just some of the amazingness that is the writing of Courtney Alison Moulton! Go and read her books! Now! Do it! :)
