“After all the dangerous adventures I'd had, I couldn't die like this. Sadie would be devastated. Then, once she got over her grief, she'd track down my soul in the Egyptian afterlife and tease me mercilessly for how stupid I'd been.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“Getting eaten by a giant crocodile was bad enough.
The kid with the glowing sword only made my day worse.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“What the creeping crud is that?" [Percy] demanded. "You’re inside a giant glowing chicken-man!"
"Hawk!" I yelled.
I decided that if I survived this day I would have to make sure this guy never met Sadie. They’d probably take turns insulting me for the rest of eternity.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“I'm Carter Kane-part-time high school freshman, part-time magician, full-time worrier about all the Egyptian gods and monsters who are constantly trying to kill me.

Okay, that last part is an exaggeration. Not all the gods want me dead. Just a lot of them.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


Could be worse, I told myself. I could be studying cheese demons.
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek

― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“Normally my sister, Sadie, or some of our other initiates from Brooklyn House would've come with me. But they were all at the First Nome, in Egypt, for a weeklong training session on controlling cheese demons(yes, they're a real thing; believe me, you don't want to know)”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“Freak is easily spooked. Flesh-eating monsters tend to scare him away. So do fireworks, clowns, and the smell of Sadie's weird British Ribena drink. (Can't blame him on that last one. Sadie grew up in London and developed some pretty strange tastes.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“The next microsecond, as the water erupted around me, I realized too late that I should've brought the entire Twenty-first Nome to help me.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“I opened my backpack and checked my supplies: some enchanted rope, my curved ivory wand, a lump of wax for making a magical shabti figurine, my calligraphy set, and a healing potion my friend Jaz had brewed for me a while back. (She knew that I got hurt a lot.)”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek



“Percy grunted. “You sound like Annabeth.” “Who?” “Nothing.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek

― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek

― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek


“Look, man, I don’t know who you are, but that crocodile has been terrorizing Long Island for weeks. I take that kind of personal, as this is my home turf. A few days ago, it ate one of our pegasi.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek

― Rick Riordan, quote from The Son of Sobek

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.
