― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Ella puso mi mano a su alrededor, luego murmuró algo incoherente pero sonó como,
"Dime un secreto"...

...."Estoy loco por ti”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Me incliné hacia ella y la besé, presionando mi cuerpo al de ella. Ella sabía muy bien, como fresas y menta. Sus brazos fueron de contra la pared a alrededor de mi cuello, tirando de mí aún más cerca. Sus dedos estaban en mi cabello, sus labios moviéndose a través de mi mejilla, su corazón latiendo con fuerza. Quería arrancar nuestra ropa y dejar que ella se arrastrara por todo mi cuerpo.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Tengo que decirte algo.”

Oh-oh. Aquí viene el discurso de los amigos.

“Oh, ¿sí?”

Sus ojos azul claro miraron a los míos. “Feliz cumpleaños, Jackson.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Su suave risa resonó a través de mis oídos, y tuve el repentino impulso de echármela al hombro y salir corriendo de aquí. Asegurándome de que nunca le ocurriera nada malo. Respiré e intenté concentrarme a pesar del dolor que sentía por dentro. Ella no me conocía. Sabía que no me conocería, pero aun así se sentía como una patada en el estómago.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Observé su cara atentamente mientras le desabotonaba los vaqueros, y tiraba de ellos desde abajo, arrastrándola hasta el final de la cama, se rió muy fuerte, restándole algo de tensión al ambiente....

.....Me rozó el cuello con los labios y deslizó una mano dentro de mi camisa. Un momento después, la mayoría de nuestra ropa estaba por el suelo, Holly encima de mí y mis manos por todo su cuerpo.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“My greatest fear is saying I" I love you", even if its true. Im scare to say it because it sounds so final, like a goodbye. But im not saying goodbye, not ever. Maybe you could just try to stay longer, for me, because I don't know if I can be me without you.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Abbiamo riso di nuovo e siamo andati avanti così tutta la notte. Holly era seduta al bancone della cucina, ad ascoltare le mie battute, mentre io preparavo delle uova strapazzate. Era bellissima, avvolta nel mio accappatoio blu, con i capelli bagnati e le guance ancora rosse. Ora che ci ripensavo, avrei potuto prolungare quel momento per settimane ed essere felicissimo. Forse anche per mesi. Niente è andato per il verso giusto. Eppure è stato perfetto..”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Ho fatto un respiro debole e profondo e mi sono imposto di non piangere più. «Va
bene, Courtney. Adesso puoi dormire. Va bene. Niente più dolore.»
«Grazie» ha sussurrato.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“«Detesto quando mi fai piangere.»
«Piangi quanto vuoi, l’importante è che tu sia felice.»
«Sono felice» ha detto.
E lo ero anch’io. Nonostante tutto.”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“«Dimmi un segreto.»
«Sono pazzo di te.»”
― Julie Cross, quote from Tempest

“Nature doesn't ask your permission; it doesn't care about your wishes, or whether you like its laws or not. You're obliged to accept it as it is, and consequently all its results as well.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, quote from Notes from Underground, White Nights, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, and Selections from The House of the Dead

“I kiss him to get him to stop talking. If he keeps talking I will love him, and I don't want to love him. I really don't. As strategies go, it's not my finest. Kissing is just another way of talking except without the words.”
― Nicola Yoon, quote from The Sun Is Also a Star

“Damn girl. Is your daddy a thief?"
I'd never actually met my dad. Maybe he was. All I knew was that he'd been mortal. Hopefully, he'd been nothing like these two ass-hats. Ren flexed his nonexistent muscles, smiling.
"Well, then who stole those diamonds and put them in your eyes?"
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, quote from Daimon

“The Business of the World is Trade and Death, and you must engage with that unpleasantness, as the price of your not-at-all-assur'd Moment of Purity.— Fool.”
― Thomas Pynchon, quote from Mason & Dixon

“I didn’t want to kill the hollow any more than I wanted to kill a strange animal. In the course of leading this creature around by the nose, I had gotten close enough to understand that there was more than just void inside it. There was a tiny spark, a little marble of soul at the bottom of a deep pool. It wasn’t hollow—not really.”
― Ransom Riggs, quote from Library of Souls

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.
