message 1: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) I'm currently rereading Graceling, and I came across the part where Po tells Katsa that he loves her. So I decided to copy it down because that's what I do when I find parts in books I want to quote, and it got me thinking: I must have read hundreds of the first "I love you's" in the books I have read. So, I thought it would be really cool to try and find as many of those first confessions as we can and post them in this thread.

Sound cool?

Here's the quote I had found:

-“I know you don’t want this, Katsa. But I can’t help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I’m afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you’ll . . . I don’t know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me,” he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. “I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.” –Po from Graceling (by Kristin Cashore)

I always love the first love confessions! This one is Tris and Four from Divergent.

“I have something I need to tell you," he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. "I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."
"That's sensible of you," I say, smiling too. "We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something."
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
"Maybe I'm already sure," he says, "and I just don't want to frighten you."
I laugh a little. "Then you should know better."
"Fine," he says. "Then I love you.”
- Veronica Roth, Divergent.

Kate (kaitlins16) This one isn't that wordy, and it's slightly inappropriate, but it's still the first time Asher tells Cam he loves her.

-"I love you," he told her when they were through. He hugged her and kissed the top of her head and said it into her hair again.
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder by Wendy Wunder

That's probably one of my favorite love confessions. *tears up*


message 8: by Dalu (new)

Dalu  | 38 comments this are my favourite quotes from Delirium:

“Are you sure that being like everybody else will make you happy?"
"I don't know any other way."
"Let me show you."
And then we're kissing. Or at least, I think we're kissing—I've only seen it done a couple of times, quick closed-mouth pecks at weddings or on formal occasions. But this isn't like anything I've ever seen, or imagined, or even dreamed: this is like music or dancing but better than both.”

“I told you," he whispers back. I can feel his breath just tickling the space behind my ear, making my hair prick up on my neck. "I like you."
"You don't know me," I say quickly.
"I want to, though.”

and there are more but i dont want to spoil anything! i think this is the most quotable book ever!

Kate (kaitlins16) "I went to get up, but he grabbed both my arms. "I love you, Riley."
My heart jumped at the declaration. I thought of these past weeks and how special he had made me feel, at how alive I felt because of him. "I love you, too, Ian."

message 16: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) I'm pretty sure it's not the first love confession in the series, but it's the first from Shay to Calla in this book.

"I love you," he murmured before he kissed me. I returned his kiss, aching to be closer to him.
"I know you don't need me, Cal," he said, moving his lips along my throat. "That's why I love you. But I want you to know I belong beside you, with you. I may not have been the one chosen for you, but I want to be your mate. Your alpha."

-Andrea Cremer, Bloodrose


message 17: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) I love this one.

"I have hope," he said, his gaze never leaving mine. "I have hope because I love you--I've been in love with you, Avery. Probably before I even realized that I was."

-J. Lynn, Wait for You

Dalu  | 38 comments this is not from a book its someting it happened to me and i thought it souded like a piece of a book:

I was in a friend's house and suddenly her boyfriend appeared with a friend of his, who i alredy knew. He sat next to me while we were watching a horror movie and put his arm arround me.
Afew minutes later he kissed my head and whispered into my ear " I like you, I wanna know you better" and then we kissed.

That was a long time ago.. 12/18/2011

message 23: by Robyn (new)

Robyn “I'm in love with you," he said quietly.

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
-The Fault In Our Stars, John Green
One of the funniest and saddest books I've ever read!

Chloe Fandom Queen This one is one of my favourites...

"In this whole screwed up town, you're the only thing that's always been right to me," He whispered. "I love you, Claire." She saw something that might been just a flash of panic go across his expression, but then he steadied again. "I can't believe I'm saying this, but I do. I love you."
-Lord of Misrule (Morganville Vampires #5)

message 30: by Anum (new)

Anum | 37 comments “I’m sorry that I caused you this hurt,” he said. “And as mad as you are at me right now, you need to realize that I’m madder at myself. I did this to you. To us. I hurt the most important person in my life. If someone else had hurt you this badly I’d rip their heart out.”
He stood there and just stared. The silence in the room seemed too loud. Or was it the pain echoing in the room that pierced her ears?
“I’ll go now,” he said, and she couldn’t remember ever hearing him sound so defeated. So lost. “I’ve said what I wanted to, and just know I’ll give you all the time you need to forgive me. But not forgiving me, that isn’t an option. Because I love you.”
- Lucas (Chosen at NightFall;Shadow Falls series)

Shav (keelahlove) | 429 comments "I did it because I love you," I said, like it was the most obvious thing in the world. And really, it was.
He laughed. "You can sum up in one sentence what it takes me a whole speech to get out."
"Because it's that simple. I love you, and I don't want to keep pretending like I don't."

-Rose and Dimitri (Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead)

Kate (kaitlins16) “I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ”
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

I just found this while hopping around on blogs. I haven't read the book, but it's pretty sweet.

I read that last night. I replayed the scene in my mind a thousand times when I was trying to sleep. Tris and Tobias have actually made me like romance!!! (Well, so did Ron and Hermione, but I was too distracted to focus on their romance...)

But I can’t make myself stop loving you. So if you’ve figured it out, if you’ve found some spell or something that will end my feelings for you, I’m all ears here.”- Tristan

Shav (keelahlove) | 429 comments “You could at least apologize,” Laurel said. Her mood had turned sullen and she wasn’t quite sure why. Her head was a mess of confusion.
“I’m not sorry,” Tamani said, his tone not apologetic in the least.
“Well, you should be!” Laurel said, turning toward him for just a second.
“Why?” Tamani asked, his voice annoyingly calm.
Laurel turned to face him.
“Why should I be sorry? Because I kissed the girl I’m in love with? I love you, Laurel.”
