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

Hilary McKay
“Make a wish," said Indigo.
Rose made a wish and then asked, "Why?"
"That's what I always do. Wish on the moving ones."
"Does it matter how fast they move?"
"I don't think so."
"Can you wish on airplanes, too?"
"Oh, yes.”
Hilary McKay, Indigo's Star

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

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

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

Kelley Armstrong
“She's my friend."
"Good for you."
"Just my luck," I said. "Finally meet my twin brother and, turns out, he's an ass.”
Kelley Armstrong, The Rising

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

Hilary McKay
“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
“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

Nalini Singh

“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

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

Jesmyn Ward
“Did every step feel like the running leap a bird takes before flight?”
Jesmyn Ward

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

Brandon Mull
“The only furniture in the dank space was a flimsy cot. Water dripped steadily in one corner. A hole in the floor appeared to serve as a latrine. What most caught Kendra's eye were the messages scratched on the wall. She roamed the cell, reading the crudely inscribed phrases.

"Seth rules!

Welcome to Seth's House.

Seth rocks!

Seth was here. Now it's your turn.

Seth Sorenson forever.

Enjoy the food!

If you're reading this, you can read.

All roads lead to Seth.

Is it still dripping?

Seth haunts these halls.

You're in a Turkish prison!

Seth is the man!

Use the meal mats as toilet paper." And so forth.

Cold, hopeless, and alone, Kendra found herself giggling at the messages her brother had scrawled. He must have been so bored!”
Brandon Mull, Keys to the Demon Prison

Jesmyn Ward
“But this grief, for all its awful weight, insists that he matters.”
Jesmyn Ward, Men We Reaped

Monica Ali
“Gabe, did you pray?'

'Sort of.'

'Me too. Do you believe?'

'No. Do you?'


'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.'

Monica Ali, In the Kitchen

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

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

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

Eric Berlin
“Winston and his sister walked for a time in silence, each in an invisible, vibrating pocket of excitement.”
Eric Berlin, The Puzzling World of Winston Breen

Debasish Mridha
“We will find true peace only when we learn to see that there is no difference among ourselves, realize that we are different manifestations of one, and we love each other as brother and sister.”
Debasish Mridha

“Mutsuko: "I prepared a new sign!”

Yuichi: "Forget about the signs! We don’t need another one!”

Mutsuko: "I thought someone might get the wrong idea.”

Yuichi: “...Yeah, we’ve seen plenty of someone here getting the wrong idea, haven’t we?”

Mutsuko: "Also, it felt kind of like lying. So I wrote this!”

With that, Mutsuko tore off the bug bomb sign and stuck up a new one.

Demon Castle Goddamn.

Yuichi: "That makes no sense! This is the survival club, right? So that’s a lie, too!”

Mutsuko: "Really? I think anyone would be hesitant to come in if they thought Lord Greed might be hanging around. And I refer to this room as Demon Castle Goddamn, so it’s not a lie!”

Yuichi: “How many people will even get the reference?!”

Mutsuko: "...Good point. How about this for a compromise, then?” Mutsuko took out her felt-tipped pen and wrote directly on the sign to fix it. It now read:

Demon Castle Goddaclub.

Yuichi: "What kind of club is that supposed to be?!”

William Faulkner
“Hello sister." Her face was like a cup of milk dashed with coffee in the sweet warm emptiness. [...] She looked like a librarian. Something among dusty shelves of ordered certitudes long divorced from reality, desiccating peacefully, as if a breath of that air which sees injustice done.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

Diana Abu-Jaber
“At thirteen, she was already five feet seven, a little hollowed-out by her growth spurt, her chest concave, her eyes with their ineffable violet light enormous, her bangs cut straight across her brow so she looked very young and serious. He realizes only now that as time passed he'd continued to think of Felice as that thirteen-year-old child, preserved like a geranium between the leaves of a book. She is still young and slim, yet changed. Her shoulders are straighter and more refined; the bangs are gone- her hair swings to her shoulders. Her eyes no longer seem overlarge: they are wide, almond-shaped. Nieves stares at her: he'd failed to mention his sister's beauty.
Stanley tucks his chin: inside, a ragged blank- the feeling that this couldn't possibly be his sister: 'she' is still out there- a thirteen-year-old, who vanished into the night, a black orchid.”
Diana Abu-Jaber, Birds of Paradise

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
