Michelle | 79 comments I thought I'd start something fun! What's one of your favorite quotes or lines? Name the book!

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this from JR Ward's Lover Awakened... by Zhadist!


"I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened."

I love Z!

Dawn (dawnv) | 320 comments ok I am probably going to butcher these since they are from memory:

The first is from Sookie Stack house I think living dead in dallas and Eric says "That's fascinating and since I'm going to be in the neighborhood, you thought I would do as an escort? To an orgy? and then he goes on to say " Sookie you trust me? That is crazy" I love Eric

The other one that I can recall comes from the dark hunter series Ash says a lot but I think my favorite Ash quote is "Have you ever noticed that salvation much like your car keys is usually found when you least expect it?" AND "the past is dead tomorrow will become whatever decision you make it.

Man I love Ash.

Lisa Hendrix (lisahendrix) | 57 comments "He liked radical politics and had a fondness for chocolate."

Not para, but the first line of Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale, probably my favorite romance. I'll have to cogitate a bit to come up with a line from a paranormal. I seldom remember anything that's not a song...







message 5: by Jessa (new)

Jessa Slade (jessaslade) | 114 comments I just read this the other night and it made me go wow, so I'll post it here:

From Demon Moon by Meljean Brook: "He couldn't stop her--didn't want to stop her, but she couldn't do this to him, couldn't, not without...
Good God, she'd made him come in his pants."

I lol'd. Gotta admire a heroine with such technique, and I sort of loved a hero brave enough to be impressed too.

Brandy *Ahviel* (ahviel) | 257 comments "Welcome to the wonderful world of jealousy, he thought. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistable urge to commit murder, and an inferority complex. Yippee." JR Ward

This just puts a smile on my face..


message 9: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 79 comments Jess... I think that I'm going to have to read Demon Moon by Meljean Brook now! I started busting up when I read that quote

Me too!

Brandy *Ahviel* (ahviel) | 257 comments I am with you girls that quote had me rolling. I had to share with my boss why I was laughing. I would say hard but that would be too much of a PUN would it not :0


message 12: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Ha! I would not want to explain that one to my boss. She'd faint away.

But maybe with her unconscious, I could take the rest of the day off...hmnnnnn.


message 13: by Brandy *Ahviel* (new)

Brandy *Ahviel* (ahviel) | 257 comments I am lucky that my boss thinks it is funny that I read so much. Her response was 'well that will get you worked up for the day won't it'
I am just glad that she was smiling while she said that otherwise I think i would have fainted. Just glad she is not a hard ass

Most of my favorite quotes are from LKH's Anita Blake series.

Here is my top three:


"There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don't help them by doing the job yourself."

--------------

"Sometimes it's not the optimist you need, but another pessimist to walk beside you and know, absolutely know, that the sound in the dark is a monster, and it really is as bad as you think.

Did that sound hopeless? It didn't feel hopeless. It felt reassuring. It felt - real. - Anita Blake"


"That's why I love Jean-Claude. He is a realist. Not like silly Richard who needs a major reality check..LOL
-------------

""Before I knew you, I thought brave was not being afraid. You've taught me that bravery is being terrified and doing it anyway." - Jason Schuyler"

-------------

For me, beneath the ranting of Anita, are pretty good gems of wisdom. I love them when I come across them..LOL



UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish Off the top of my head I can't pick one in particular, but one day I was reading Megan's Mark by Lora Leigh and Braden kept saying he was going to "beat her a$$" (her being Megan) and the way it was written was hysterical! Guess you had to be there.


message 16: by Wendy (new)

Wendy  (wendyhill) | 88 comments Off the top of my head from Lover Unbound, a quote from Vishous, "When I want you to beg, I'll tell you"

and from Acheron, "I'm the top of the food chain and well, you're the food"


message 17: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments I was just on Russell Brand's page (UK comedian), and one of his is:

"I couldn't possibly have sex with someone with such a slender grasp on grammar!"


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish Wendy wrote: "Off the top of my head from Lover Unbound, a quote from Vishous, "When I want you to beg, I'll tell you"

OH, yeah... I remember that one... and the place... and the situation.... *fanning self*



UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish Wendy wrote: and from Acheron, "I'm the top of the food chain and well, you're the food""

Acheron was an amazing story. I sobbed!

I loved his story as difficult as it was to read. I cried so hard and discovered it's really hard to read and cry. LOL
And Vishous, well I just have a thing for him.




UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish I think everyone has a thing for V, I know I do *fanning self again*

And I always loved Ash, but man-o-man... his story was worth the hardcover price.

lol, ok, right now one of my favs is a quote from the short story The Ungrateful Dead by Kelley Armstrong. Its at the end of the story (which deals with a ghost majorly P.O.-ing a Necromancer) and she tells her aide:

"Tell Molly (a black witch) that we have a special today. Two zombies for the price of one." I knelt beside the casket and started the ritual.

This just shows--if you are dead--do not make a necromancer angry at you.

:o)



message 23: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Angry Necromancers. Lol.


message 24: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Eric and Sookie discuss anatomy.

"This is adequate?"

"Maybe I should have said it's a gracious plenty?"

Ann aka Iftcan (iftcan) | 2659 comments Mod
lol Michelle. I loved that quote too. :o) Some of Sookie's sayings are just too funny. Of course, part of that is because I can see many of my relatives saying the same thing. I'm a Navy brat, so lived all over the world--and country. But my parents are from the deep South, and we'd go back to visit relatives every summer when I was growing up. I could see my ANY of my Grans saying the same things that Sookie's Gran said. And the male relatives----oh yeah, definately southern males in general are well pictured in these books.


message 26: by Julia (new)

Julia (rhodium_maiden) | 53 comments Michelle M - I LOVE rbrand! What a great quote from him. Fully agree!

I love those Anita quotes too. Yz & Sarah. I think LKH can be very eloquent.

From Keri Arthur's Full Moon Rising:

Hero rips off Heroine's shirt, buttons go flying. Heroine complains. Hero responds, with a growl, "Bill me!"

From Judy Blume's Wifey:

"Douching with vinegar" = "cunt vinaigrette"

From Liz Carlyle's The Devil You Know:

"It was hard for a man to seem like an overbearing jackass with a mewling ball of fur hanging off his knee."

"His deuling pistol sprang free, hard, hot, primed and cocked."

From a Christine Feehan Dark series book (this makes me cringe every time!):

"His incisors lengthened as his penis did."

I like this one from Jeanine Frost's Nighthuntress series.

By Cat:

"Well, you know what they say: Once you go dead, no one's better in bed!"



message 28: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments OMG, Julia. Hysterical. Although ew on the Wifey one!


message 29: by Julia (new)

Julia (rhodium_maiden) | 53 comments I collect quotations (from books and elsewhere). I can whip out more if there's interest, although those are the funniest ones! BTW, The Devil You Know, while not PN, is a wonderful historical romance and there are a lot of intentionally funny moments.

The Feehan quote is the all-time worst line I have ever read in a Romance novel, and you know that's saying a lot.


message 30: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Julia: I've been obsessed with Russell as of late. Saw him live here in NY at the beginning of the month and he was brill.

Do you read his blog? So intelligent for an insane man. I expecially like the image of monkeys wearing his jim jams and yelling at his mum over the phone.

message 31: by Julia (new)

Julia (rhodium_maiden) | 53 comments Michelle: You saw him LIVE?!?! I am so jealous! I knew I shouldn't have moved from Manhattan. I first stumbled upon him watching the VMAs last year and fell instantly in love.

I love him precisely because he is both radically bizarre and incredibly brilliant. And his hair! He's such an unapologetic nutjob!


message 32: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Julia, he was awesome. He talked about the VMAs and how he had to improvise the whole show because he realized his scripted material was only offending all the stern moguls in attendance. He then proceeded to tell the jokes he would have done, had he a nice, filthy minded audience like ourselves. We were in tears.

He's a great showman. I need to buy his book. My Booky Wook.


message 33: by Julia (new)

Julia (rhodium_maiden) | 53 comments *more envy*

I can only imagine what he DIDN'T say at the VMAs was incredible. Do you remember anything noteworthy?


message 34: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments He's so stream of consciousness, plus there was lots of wine involved (for me)! More than anything, I remember him reading out his favorite death threats. Apparently he got a lot after telling people to vote for Obama! And about how he was so blindly love-struck by Helen Mirren that he greeted her with his undies in hand.


message 35: by Julia (last edited Mar 28, 2009 05:27PM) (new)

Julia (rhodium_maiden) | 53 comments Wine??? The undies! The death threats! Oh, I hope I can find this online somewhere. :D

ETA: OH you drank lots of wine. *headdesk* I love wine! What'd you drink?


message 36: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1593 comments Haven't a clue! Whatever red they had on hand, and copious amounts of it. Well actually, 2 glasses, but the servings were terribly generous.
Btw: Helen took the undies.

And the fire alarm kept going off! Either we were under his thrall or we New Yorkers are terribly jaded, because the lights spun and the alarm wailed and we all just shrugged and kept laughing.
