“Since when does reading suck? Who says that? If I ran the world, people who didn’t read would be the first to go. Boom. Put them out of their misery.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“You mistake my intent on our non-existent boyfriend/girlfriend relationship." He steps closer. "We might not be using the titles, but I still claim you as mine.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“You do realize that means you’re officially off the market.” I say, poking him in the hard stomach. The warm, wide palms of his hands cup my face and my breath hitches.
“Baby, I’ve been off the market since the moments these cheeks turned the sexiest shade of pink.”
Heat flares under my skin and I avert my gaze. “And when was that?”
“When I caught you eye-fucking me.”
I shove him and he lets go of my face. “I did not.”
He laughs loudly and squeezes me against him. “You did. Admit it.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I’ll be counting down the days.”
“Wow, way to make me feel crazy.” He says, leaning in and kissing my neck.
“How?”
“Because I’ll be counting down the seconds.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“What happened to your ‘I don’t do girlfriends’ thing.”
His lips twitch. “You happened.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed

― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I drag my gaze back to Seth. He's covered in blood and sweat. He points at me and then at his eyes and then at his chest. He wants me to watch him... I shake my head. I can't. It's too much. He does the gestures again. And again.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“You don’t see yourself like I do. You don’t see the way your cheeks turn pink when I say or do inappropriate things. You can’t hear the sweet, innocent tone in your voice when you say things... but I do.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“Let me tuck you in before I go.”
“You want to tuck me in?” I ask incredulously.
“Of course. I take care of what’s mine.”
“And I am yours.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“Olivia knows I love her. She knows I’d risk my entire future for her, but she doesn’t know about my plans to make her my wife.
Olivia Marc.
It has a nice ring to it? Doesn’t it?”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed

― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I’ve never felt anything so strong and it’s love—actual love. Heart wrenching, stomach churning, toe curling love.

― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“His hands find my hips and his breathing slows. What are we doing? What is this exactly? He lowers his head and opens his eyes. They search mine and I know he's asking himself the same questions.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“You are beautiful.” He whispers in my ear, sending a shiver down my spine.
I can’t help the smile that spreads across my lips. “You’re being silly.” I titter, placing my hands on his as they massage my stomach and my hips. “You’ve seen plenty of naked women...”
“Not like you.” He lowers his mouth to my neck and kisses my warm flesh. “Never like you.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed

― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I’d fly to the moon and back to comfort you when you need it.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“Vague. Since when are you vague with me?”
I exhale and recap the whole situation. Chase scoffs and laughs appropriately. By the time I’m finished, I’ve successfully converted him to team Seth.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“Well, there was a lack of naked men throwing themselves at me in your absence unfortunately so I’ve got nothing to help boost your confidence—not that you need anyone to boost that already insanely high ego of yours.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I want—no—I need him in my life. In the short time of knowing him, he has flipped my world around, more than once. He can make me angry, sad and confused all in the same minute, but he can also makes me the happiest I’ve ever been. Being around Seth is exciting and dangerous and I like it... I like him.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“He must have a magical dick because there’s no way I’d keep dating someone who cheated on me every week.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed

Jackson snickers, but I don’t find it funny at all. Not in the slightest.
“He doesn’t have a magic dick.” I spit. “You two are just being immature.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“You mean I deserve someone like you? Someone who I know nothing about and has no quarrels with fucking me, but a huge issue with relationships? Yep, I got everything I deserve right there.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I know I talk a lot of shit... but I’m serious.” His warm thumb glides over my cheek and then across my bottom lip. “And since we can’t be loud for your dad’s sake, let me be gentle. Let me show you how much I care.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“I saw you in that fucking dress and I couldn’t help myself. I don't want you to see me like that all the time... I don’t want you to think I’m using you.”
― Skyla Madi, quote from Consumed


“We Own It’ by Wiz Khalifa.”

Popular quotes

“Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world. We see everything from behind, and it looks brutal. That is not a tree, but the back of a tree. That is not a cloud, but the back of a cloud. Cannot you see that everything is stooping and hiding a face? If we could only get round in front--”
― G.K. Chesterton, quote from The Man Who Was Thursday


“Every woman knows what I'm talking about when I say girls grow up with a desire to please, to cede their power to other people. . . everyone knows about the sometimes aggressive and manipulative ways men often exert power in the world, and how by using the word empowered to describe women, men are simply maintaining their own power and control.”
― Kim Gordon, quote from Girl in a Band

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 2018, 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.
