“If you really want me to be safe, maybe it's time."

"I'd just feel safer if you'd start sleeping in a coffin."

Just then my door creaked open.

Billy's expression turned to surprise.

"Get out!" I said, hopping off the bed. "Uh...we are making up lyrics to a song."

But that didn't keep Billy out. Instead he was totally interested.

"You're writing a song? That's so cool. I want to hear it."

"It goes, 'Safer in a coffin, and if your brother doesn't leave, he'll be in one too.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“If anyone was going to fall prey to a handsome vampire, it was going to be me.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“I bet it breaks your heart to have two of your friends pine for me the way they do," he said proudly. "Luna...and now Scarlet. They can't keep their hands off of me."

"It's just because you are foreign to them. It's like if they went to the zoo and stared at the monkeys. You are the monkey.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“So what about that key?" I asked.
"I knew you'd be asking me about it sooner or later." He pulled the cord out from underneath his shirt and dangled the key in front of me.
"What do you want for it?" I sneered. "Five dollars?"
"I don't want money," he said with a wicked grin.
"What does it go to?"
"A kiss will unlock more than this key will," he whispered in my ear.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“Trevor possessed many of the qualities of a vampire without actually being one. He constantly preyed on me, was deeply charismatic, and tried to suck the life out of me.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings



“Commitment. That's what it's all about. Taking that convenant together. Bonding yourselves for all eternity. Isn't that what we are all looking for? Maybe Alexander wasn't ready to do that with me, but it's obvious he isn't ready to do that with you, either.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“I'd witnessed for the first time in my vampire- obsessed existence an actual vampire bite. The only problem was that it wasn't my neck being bitten.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“Trevor was as menacing as he was gorgeous. If he were a vampire, he'd be the dark kind, the kind that sneaks up on innocent girls and bites without a thought.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings


“Did I hear it's going to be someone's birthday?" a familiar male's voice said from behind me.
I didnt even bother turning around and continued walking, but that didn't stop my nemesis from disturbing me. He jumped in front of me, blocking my way.
"It's been a whole year, has it?" he asked in a syrupy tone. "Maybe this birthday I'll finally give you what you've always wanted.”
― Ellen Schreiber, quote from Cryptic Cravings

“Having Bob gave me a chance to interact with people.... Cats are notoriously picky about who they like. Seeing me with my cat softened me in [others] eyes. It humanized me. Especially after I'd been so dehumanized. In some ways it was giving me back my identity. I had been a non-person; I was becoming a person again.”
― James Bowen, quote from A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets


“I still say this is madness,’ whispered Jonat.
‘I know – at this moment I’m inclined to agree with you.’
‘But we’ll go anyway,’ muttered Jonat. ‘One of these days someone is going to listen to my advice and I’ll probably die of the shock!”
― David Gemmell, quote from Waylander


“He looked like a man who'd invite you to rest your head on his shoulder while he made everything bad go away.”
― Jennifer Ashley, quote from Pride Mates


“Most people are quite dense. They like little white houses with big stained-glass churches and prefer to do their killing with looks and words behind one another's backs."

He paused.

"Welcome to my house. No secrets allowed. Here we all do our killing with guns and axes and knives. It's more bloody than what most people are accustomed to, yes, but it's far less brutal.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from House


“I don't want to die, but at the same time, I wish I were dead.”

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.
