Michelle Hodkin
“My brother cleared his throat. "I wish she knew that I think she is the most hilarious person on Earth. And that whenever she's not home, I feel like I'm missing my partner in crime."
My throat tightened. Do not cry. Do not cry.
"I wish she knew that she's really Mom's favorite--"
I shook my head here.
"--the princess she always wanted. That Mom used to dress her up like a little doll and parade her around like Mara was her greatest achievement. I wish Mara knew that I never minded, because she's my favorite too.”
Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer

Colleen Hoover
“I didn't mean to scare you. I'm not suicidal if that's what's freaking you out. I'm not fucked up in the head. I'm not deranged. I'm not suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. I'm just a brother who loved his sister more than life itself, so I get a little intense when I think about her.”
Colleen Hoover, Hopeless

Kelley Armstrong, The Rising

“Make a wish," said Indigo.
Rose made a wish and then asked, "Why?"

"Oh, yes.”
Hilary McKay, Indigo's Star

Roman Payne
“Whilst the wolflets bayed,
A grave was made,
And then with the strokes of a silver spade,
It was filled to make a mound.
And for two cold days and three long nights,
The father tended that holy plot;
And stayed by where his wife was laid, In the grave within the ground.”
Roman Payne, Cities & Countries

Sherwood Smith
“A horse blanket, Mel?
I remembered what I was wearing. 'It tore in half when Hrani tried washing it. She was going to mend it. This piece was too small for a horse, but it was just right for me.'
Bran laughed a little unsteadly. 'Mel. A horse blanket.”
Sherwood Smith, Crown Duel

“I love people who play guitars on roofs!" said Rose, hopping along the pavement in one of her sudden happy moods. "Don't you?"

"Never knew anyone else who did it!"

"Don't you like Tom?"

"Of course I do. But I don't know about all the other guitar-on-roof players! They might be really awful people, with just that one good thing about them. Playing guitars on roofs... or bagpipes... Or drums... Sarah would like that, and Saffy could have the bagpipes! Caddy could have a harp.... What about Mum?"

"One of those gourds filled with beans!" said Rose at once. "And Daddy could have a grand piano. On a flat roof. With a balcony and pink flowers in pots around the edge! And I'll have a very loud trumpet! What about you?"

"I'll just listen," said Indigo.”
Hilary McKay, Indigo's Star

Roman Payne
“Never had we ever kissed as lovers; if we touched lips it was as brother and sister. In one moment of emotion, our lips fell together by accident, but we quickly removed ourselves as though we were children touching glass with dirty hands.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Roman Payne
“I knelt and locked the door. I locked the door locking the world and time outside. I stretched my body across the mattress and Saskia drew in close to me and placed her open hand on my chest, her mouth near my shoulder; her breath, my breath blew out the candle, and I held my lost Wanderess with tenderness until sweet sleep overcame us.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Nalini Singh
“Riley?”

“Go away.” He’d heard Brenna enter, had decided to ignore her.

But Brenna had never been easily dissuaded. “Drew said you’re not sleeping well- that you were up most of last night.”

He went through a vicious series of moves and ended a foot from her, breath calm, eyes furious. “Drew has a big fucking mouth.”

“Yeah, tell me something I don’t know.” She grinned, but there was worry in those magnificent eyes she’d turned from a scar to a badge of courage. “Riley, is this… I…”

Scowling, he closed the distance between them to cup her cheek. “It’s not about you.” Her hurt haunted him, but he wasn’t going to put that weight on her back. That was his cross to bear. “I’m not sleeping well because I want sex.”

Her mouth dropped open. Then she went bright red. “Too. Much. Information!”
Nalini Singh, Branded by Fire

Monica Ali
“Gabe, did you pray?'

'Sort of.'

'Me too. Do you believe?'

'No. Do you?'

'No.'

'I don't believe,' said Gabriel, 'But I have faith, if you know what I mean.'

'What in?'

'I don't know, life, carrying on, I suppose.'

'Yes.”
Monica Ali, In the Kitchen

“Sisters and brothers just happen, we don't get to choose them, but they become one of our most cherish relationships.”
Wes Adamson

Nathaniel Hawthorne
“He had a winged nature; she was rather of the vegetable kind, and could hardly be kept long alive, if drawn up by the roots. Thus it happened that the relation heretofore existing between her brother and herself was changed.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The House of the Seven Gables

“Dobře, o dvě minuty mladší bratře."
"Potom mi ten stůl vyčistíš, o dvě minuty starší sestro."
...
"Něco mi uniká?"
"Ne, o bůhví kolik let starší Johnny.”
Adelle R., Jeden dotek

Meg Wolitzer
“The love between a brother and sister just over a year apart in age held fast. It wasn’t twinship, and it wasn’t romance, but it was more like a passionate loyalty to a dying brand.”
Meg Wolitzer, The Interestings

Gillian Flynn
“Go didn't like grilled cheese; she was scooping peanut butter out of the jar onto saltines. When a commercial break came on, she paused and said, 'If I had a dick, I would fuck this peanut butter.' deliberately spraying cracker bits toward me.
'I think if you had a dick, all sorts of bad things would happen.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Victoria Alexander
“Leo offered his arm and Cassie took it. Sister and brother strolled aimlessly for a few moments. “Perhaps we have not suffered enough to earn happiness?”

Cassie glanced up at him, relieved to note the teasing twinkle in his eye. “I should be happy to make you suffer with a well-placed kick to your backside if that’s what you wish.”

Leo laughed. “I shall pass if you don’t mind. Besides, I am barely nine-and-twenty and have plenty of time left to enjoy myself before the need truly arises to settle myself with a wife.” He sobered. “You, however—”

“Don’t say it, Leo,” Cassie said firmly. “Or I shall be forced to deliver that kick and a great deal more.”
Victoria Alexander, The Pursuit of Marriage

Lorelei James
“This is exactly what I meant by unfair, Abe. If I woulda brought a guy home and announced, ‘He’s staying with me in my room,’ both you and Hank would’ve trussed him up and dragged him off Lawson land.”

“Not the same thing, Celia.”

Her gray eyes narrowed. “Why? Because you both have dicks? Or because you both are dicks?”
Lorelei James, Corralled
