“We had no idea what waited ahead of us, other than the big, fat unknown, and most likely a big, fat kick in the face. The gravity of that was killing me-killing us

I squared my shoulders. "Release the Kraken!"

Several sets of eyes settled on me.

"What?" I gave a lopsided shrug. "I've always wanted to yell that since I saw that movie. Seemed like the perfect moment.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Alex fainted-"
"I didn't faint," I grumbled, feeling my cheeks flush.

Aiden's lip curved up on one side. "Okay. She was suddenly not walking or talking anymore...”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon



“By the way," Aiden said casting me a long look that had me totally forgetting the seriousness of our mission. "You look damn good in a Sentinel uniform."

A hot flush that had nothing to do with embarrassment spread over me. "So do you."

"I know.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“No matter how convoluted my life got, one thing remained consistent- my hair looked like a baby opossum had taken refuge in it, invited some friends over, and thrown a party.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“I'd face down a horde of spiders for you, baby." I grinned at the sound of his laugh again. "For real."
"Thats true love there. Some serious stuff," he teased.
"It is.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Flipping to the front, I caught Aiden's gaze and offered a sympathetic smile.

"Skittles?"

"Please."

I dumped some into his open palm, then picked out the green ones. Aiden grinned at me.

"You know I don't like the green ones?"

Shrugging, I popped them in my mouth.

"The few times I've seen you eat them, you leave the green ones behind."

Deacon popped his head between our seats.

"That's true love right there."

"That it is."

Aiden's gaze flicked to the road. I flushed like a little schoolgirl and focused on the remaining pieces of candy until Deacon drifted back into his seat. I handed all the red ones to Aiden.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“I can’t believe Apollo hit me with a god bolt.”
“I can’t believe Aiden punched him.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon



“Wait. Is this book about aliens?”
She snatched it back from me. “Yes.”
“Really?”

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“I heard him whisper, "Eíste pánta mou..."

You are my everything.
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Go ahead," Apollo said to Luke. "Tell them what it is, since it's obviously hugging material."
Crimson stained Luke's cheeks. "Legend goes that one of the gates to hell is in Stull Cemetery in Kansas."
"Oh, gods," I muttered, remembering where I'd heard this before. "Wasn't that a season finale on Supernatural?" When the boys nodded, my eyes rolled. "Seriously? Are Sam and Dean going to be there?”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“And that was the thing about truths and secrets. Sometimes the truth didn't need to be known. The lie was healthier than the truth and, while some secrets could set people free, other secrets could destroy them.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“You two should really get a room," Apollo said from out of nowhere.
"My poor eyes..."
I groaned. Even in his true identity, he still had impeccable timing.
"Gods," Aiden spat. He pulled back, casting Apollo a disgusted look over my head. "Do you get off on sneaking up on us?"
"You probably don't want to know what I get off on.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon



“Dying isn't the only way into the Underworld, but it's the safest."

Well, that sounded like an oxymoron if I'd ever heard one.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“A smug, satisfied grin stretched Apollo's lips. "I took Hermes' helmet, melted the mother down, and here you go. An invisibility charm just for you."
Apollo dropped the necklace into my palm. It was a reddish-gold color, and a crudely shaped wing was etched into it. "Ha," I said. "It's like Harry Potter and the invisibility cloak."
Everyone stared at me.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Eat it," I ordered, holding it with two hands now, making it dance in the air. "It's begging you. 'Eat me'."

Aiden pressed his lips together, but when he glanced at me and my dancing bun, he burst into laughter. "All right, give me the bun.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

She hesitated.

I snapped to my feet. "Bitch, please.”

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon



“Deacon laughed. "Oh, you're so going to be the next person who gets hit. I'm putting money on that."

"You need to add yourself to that list." Aiden looked about seventy-percent serious.
"And I'm putting money on that," Luke threw in.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Alex fainted—"
"I didn't faint," I grumbled, feeling my cheeks flush.
Aiden's lip curved up on one side. "Okay. She was suddenly not walking or talking anymore. During that time, she saw Seth. Apparently he used Hermes to pull her in."

My brows rose.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Apollo nodded and Dionysus bowed to the room, sweeping his arms out to the sides with a flourish. And then he was gone.
I shook my head. "Okay. Who else thinks he was high as a kite?"
Hands went up across the room and I grinned.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

"Yeah, because you are a creeper.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“Oh. Yeah, um…” I was pretty sure I matched a fire truck. “He’s a heavy sleeper.”
“I’m sure he is.” Dominic stepped back. “If you wish to join your uncle, I’ll be waiting outside. You should have time to get ready. Your uncle is a…heavy sleeper, also.”
Whaaaa…and then it hit me. Ew. Ew. Ew.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon


“His eyes were burning a liquid silver and his arm tightened around me. "I would never give up on you, Alex. Never."
"Then why are you being such a—"
"What?" his voice dropped low. "I'm being what?"
Infuriating. Stubborn. Thick-skulled. Freaking sexy. "Good gods, can we stop arguing and just, I don't know, make out?”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Apollyon

“Сильные обходятся без религии - они идут свободно и посох им уже не нужен; тем, для кого все на свете сводится лишь к пище и питью, религия тоже ни к чему - они еще не испытывают в ней нужды. Зачем посох, если ты никуда не идешь, а только топчешься на месте?”
― Gustav Meyrink, quote from The Golem

"What, exactly, do you mean by 'this'? You fucking me?" I snapped...
" Yeah. Me fucking you. In your bed, on your couch, in my bed and anywhere else I can think of. I'm gonna do you on your back, on your knees and you're gonna ride me. And when I've exhausted you and you don't have those fucking shields up, I'm gonna make you talk to me and tell me what this shit is about and then, maybe, I can help you with it.”
― Kristen Ashley, quote from Rock Chick Renegade

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2023, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
