“I can feel you
staring at me,” he said in the softest wake-up voice I’d ever heard. “I only
hope you’re a girl and not one of the drunken guys.”
“For the time being—”He emphasized each word. “I’ll be the only one climbing through your window.”
“He can’t play
when someone is watching him,” Justin almost sang into my ear. “Totally screws
“But you all
are watching him,” I pointed out.
At the back of
the room, someone laughed. “Yeah, but we’re not girls.”
“Ryan stood over me. “What are you doing?”
“Why do I have you in my bed, when I'm not allowed to touch you?”
“In panic, I held
his hand in place. “Move another inch, Hunter, and you’re a dead man.”
“For a minute there, I thought I stood a chance. But I guess in the end, Mitchell will still be the lucky one.”
“I kind of took you for granted. Your love for me was permanent. Why should I have worried about losing you?”
“Suddenly his lips twitched. "I can feel you looking at me," he said in the softest wake up voice I'd ever heard. "I only hope you're a girl and not one of the drunken guys." My breath caught in my chest. I jerked my hand from him. Not taking his arm away from his face yet, he reached dowm with his other hand. And slowly ran his palm over my naked thigh in the direction of my bum. "Yep, definitely female," he purred. In panic, I held his hand in place. "Move another inch, Hunter, and you're a dead man."
“Plötzlich zuckte sein Mundwinkel. "Ich kann spüren, wie du mich beobachtest. Ich hoffe nur, du bist ein Mädchen und nicht einer der betrunkenen Jungs.”
“The thing about lying to your parents is, you have to do it to protect them.
It’s for their own good.”
“Is it alright to believe in the future where everyone can live in happiness?”
“The only time we can attract a crowd is for some pilgrimage up some god-damned holy mountain to chase the snakes and banshees out of the country.”
“I went to bed last night utterly dejected; I thought I was never going to amount to anything, and that you had thrown away your money for nothing. But what do you think? I woke up this morning with a beautiful new plot in my head, and I've been going about all day planning my characters, just as happy as I could be. No one can ever accuse me of being a pessimist! If I had a husband and twelve children swallowed by an earthquake one day, I'd bob up smilingly the next morning and commence to look for another set. ~Jershua Abbott”

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.
