This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:
Q: Activity: Favorite Literary Quote
Pretty in Black, Rae Hachton, Book #1: "Ellie, would you frolic in the land of forever with me?"
Nevermore, Kelly Creagh, Book #1: “Isobel’s face burned. Her skin tingled where he’d touched her, with an almost imperceptible electricity that she couldn’t be sure if she was imagining. Like the tips of her fingers had somehow fallen asleep.”
I'm pretty sure this is going to be super popular today, but I just have to list my favorite book opening of all time.
Pride & Prejudice, Jane Austen: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size.”
Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver: “Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
Those are all the books I can think of from the top of my head. I'm sure there are plenty more with really good quotes I liked.
How about you?
