TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. Every Friday she posts a new question and it’s a really fun way to discover new blogs.
This weeks question is: Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you’ve experienced in a book?
Wow, this one was super difficult! Because I know the moments I found to be super swoon-worthy, but I don’t always remember the quotes that happened at those moments. BUT that’s what Goodreads is for, yes? To help me find/remember the exact quote from a specific book!
So, here are some my favorite swoon-worthy quotes from books I’ve read recently (be warned, there may be slight spoilers):
“If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.”
― Gayle Forman, If I Stay
“I tried to be a better person for her– but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. […] You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.”
― Richelle Mead, The Golden Lily
“I have a dream,” he said slowly. “I persist in dreaming it, although it has often seemed to me that it could never come true. I dream of a home with a hearth-fire in it, a cat and dog, the footsteps of friends — and YOU!”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island
“I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm Boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard.”
― William Goldman, The Princess Bride
I know I could pick a half-dozen more, but I should probably keep it simple today. However, I may be revisiting this question later on and adding more quotes!
