Quotes Mlle Pointillés Liked

Stephanie Perkins
“Just because something isn't practical doesn't mean it's not worth creating. Sometimes beauty and real-life magic are enough.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Stephanie Perkins
“So do you believe in second chances?" I bite my lip.
"Second, third, fourth. Whatever it takes. However long it takes. If the person is right," he adds.
"If the person is... Lola?"
This time, he holds my gaze. "Only if the other person is Cricket.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Stephanie Perkins
“I slide my hand between our mouths, just in time. His lips
are soft against my palm. I slowly, slowly remove it. “No, I
don’t love Max anymore. But I don’t want to give you this
broken, empty me. I want you to have me when I’m full,
when I can give something back to you. I don’t have much to
give right now.”
Cricket’s limbs are still, but his chest is pounding hard
against my own. “But you’ll want me someday? That feeling
you once had for me … that hasn’t left either?”
Our hearts beat the same wild rhythm. They’re playing the
same song.
“It never left,” I say.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

“Lola?" Cricket is on his knees at the side of my bed. I feel it. "I'm here," he whispers. "You can talk to me or not talk to me, but I'm here.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Stephanie Perkins
“Nathan nods. "Have a good time. Don't do anything I wouldn't do." I hear Andy as I'm walking out the front door. "Honey, that threat doesn't work when you're gay.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Cécile C'est chouette GR, on trouve pleins d'amies réveillées à 2h du matin !
Manque que les québécoises ! :D


Mlle Pointillés J'ai donc passé le moment chez le disquaire. Argh!!!

J'aime l'ambiance de San Francisco, les tenues extravagantes de Lola, Lindsey, Andy et Nathan....
Et Cricket, riche de potentiel....♥


Cécile Pfffu l'extrait où il s'illumine quand il la voit, chez le disquaire. Le crêve coeur !
Je suis contente que tu accroches, je me suis aussi attachée à tous ces personnages !


Mlle Pointillés Voui, c'est trop chou! ♥

Et les personnages sont terriblement attachants!!
Comme dans Anna and the french kiss, ils sont justes, originaux, touchants....
J'aime! :)


Sofia Moi aussi moi aussi j'ai adoré :D
Mes répliques préférées :
"And your family?" he asks "how are they?"
It's unnerving. That face.
"Um, they're good." I am confident and happy. And over you. Don't forget. I'm over you.
...
"But how are you" he asks
"Great. I'm great!"
I'm great? Two years of revenge fantasies and that's what I come up with? Of course In my daydreams I'm never wearing matching pajamas either. Oh no. I'm wearing matching pajamas.
...
