“Even a pawn can take down a queen.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“I'm sorry if I have the emotional stability of a teeter-totter right now, but that's better than you, who has the emotional maturity of a rock.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“I'm sorry that you are hurting. It’s because of me that you are even here in the first place. I offered to get those passes so I could get to know you. There is something about you that feels so comforting and familiar, and I’m not sure why.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Mina stopped and stared at Jared in disbelief. “If you knew that already, why in the world did you have me climb the tree?” Jared looked at her, his eyes widening in innocence. “I didn’t ask you to climb the tree. I knew which way we were heading. I just asked you if you liked to climb trees in an attempt to start a conversation. You were the one who wanted to try to climb the stupid tree.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, show me the one who thinks Sir Nomer is a dumb name for a doll.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“A few moments of silence passed, and Mina was almost asleep when she heard Jared speaking out loud in a droning voice. “I’m keeping watch, and I see the river. I see the moon rise over the trees. I see that the forest looks really, really creepy right now. I bet you there is some sort of killer vampire turtle slowly crawling toward us out of the woods. Yep, I can almost hear its little turtle-y steps inching closer to us.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“There is something about you that feels so comforting and familiar, and I’m not sure why.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Jared, it worked!” “Of course, it worked. I’ve been trying to give you hints long enough. I can’t believe it took you this long to speak to a mirror. I thought all girls talked to mirrors. Sheesh!”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“She looked up and caught Jared’s eye. He had watched the whole exchange, and he looked amused by Mina’s actions. He pointed down at the apple that had come to rest against his shoe, the apple she had smacked out of Savannah’s hand. He laughed as he reached down and picked up the apple. Mina frowned. Dusting it off against his shirt, Jared took a bite out of it and chewed slowly, taunting her.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Chillax, I’m not going to hurt myself. I’m made of pretty sturdy stuff.”  He looked at her, and his gray eyes went soft when he spoke. “Yeah, like your heart, it’s made of stone,” Mina responded tartly.. Jared actually looked a little hurt at the barb. “Maybe, but that’s because no one has ever taken the time to break through the stone and see that I do actually have one.” “Well, maybe it’s because you are a jerk!” she snapped. “Well, maybe I only pretend to be a jerk to keep from getting too close to people!” His tone slowly began to rise in pitch and volume. “Then you must be lonely ’cause you seem to have yourself closed off from the world and protected just fine!” She spun and pointed her finger, poking him hard in the chest. “No! I don’t have to protect myself from others. Only from you!”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, show me the one who thinks Sir Nomer is a dumb name for a doll.” She held her breath and waited. The mirror swirled again, and this time another face came into focus, one that was definitely not happy. “It is about time you figured it out, Mina!” Jared grumbled through the mirror.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“She had always known that Jared was attractive. His dark hair, strong jaw, and gray eyes made him irresistible,”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“There’s no such thing as fair when it comes to the Fae and their tales.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Well, girls who rank high in hot points will eventually get old and will no longer be hot, so their hot points get lower. If you have cute points, they last forever, even when you are old. So they are definitely way more important.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Don’t let your jealousy and anger rule your emotions,” he said in a soft voice. “Nothing good will ever come of it.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“She found her destiny, or better yet, her destiny found her.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Sweetie, the Fae are powerful, and so is the Story that drives all of the Grimms’ futures. But let me tell you that nothing is more powerful than true love. And until you find out whether he is your true love or not, I can tell you from experience that those caught in the Story’s web will have intense moments of déjà vu. So don’t give up.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Tell your Kind and Queen to send their best, because this tale is about to be rewritten.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Thanks.” She immediately wanted to bash her head into the dashboard. Stupid, stupid, stupid. She was so stupid.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“It was every teenage girl’s dream to have a retreat of her own.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“But even a pawn is strong enough to take out a Queen.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest

― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Mina chuckled, and Charlie looked up and made a loving brotherly face at her, which meant he scrunched up his nose and stuck out his tongue.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“There he was: perfection. Tan skin, square jaw, twinkling blue eyes, and blond hair that curled slightly since it was still wet from the pool. Brody threw his head back and laughed at something his friend T.J. said.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Good to see you, Nina.” He opened his arms wide and pulled her into a quick and awkward hug.  “Good to see you again, Valdemar, and it’s Mina,” she corrected.”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest


“Why would he done that to her?”
― Chanda Hahn, quote from Fairest

Popular quotes

“Grandma Julie’s parents didn’t come to their wedding. Grandpa Byron says they were too busy, but that seems odd to me. Perhaps they were racists and didn’t like her marrying Grandpa Byron. Everyone was a racist in 1972, apparently.”
― quote from Time Travelling with a Hamster


“A Servant of History

Her eyes were of the lightest blue as if time had rinsed away most of the colour, but there was a liveliness inside them.”
― Ron Rash, quote from Nothing Gold Can Stay: Stories


“She hated hairy bum holes. She couldn’t stand the thought of someone doing her from behind and being distracted by what looked like a spider trying to escape from her arsehole.”
― Jolie Booth, quote from The Girl Who'll Rule the World (Saturn Returns, #1)


“We do not repay mercy with murder. Kindness grows kindness, and you will reap the harvest of whatever seeds you sow.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from Born of Legend


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” the Mad Hatter, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll”
― Victoria Danann, quote from My Familiar Stranger

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.
