Is there a part in the book you're reading that you find funny, or really like?

Share it here. :)

Please make sure the part your posting doesn't contain spoilers!


message 2: by Inês (new)

Inês | 583 comments I'm reading This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales and I found this really good.

Does this sound ridiculous and dramatic, to decide in the middle of a totally average school day that this life has gone on for long enough? Was I overreacting? Well, I’m sorry, but that is what I decided. You can’t tell me my feelings are overwrought or absurd. You don’t know. They are my feelings.

This is the beginning of chapter 2 so I don't think it's a spoiler.

I totally get where she's coming from, I used to feel that way all the time. Is the book depressing or is it likely to get better?


message 4: by Inês (new)

Inês | 583 comments I'm like 33% in of the book and I'm liking it so far, I don't find it depressing actually, in spite of this kind of phrases. I think this is more a book about learning how to live. And I'm liking the writing.

Oh, that might be okay then ☺ I have to get round to it at some point!

I just finished this one a few days ago. There are some good lines in there.

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments “When they reached a maintenance closet, Iko ushered the escort-droid inside.

“I want you to know that I hold nothing against you,” she said, by way of introduction. “I understand that it isn’t your fault your programmer had so little imagination.”

The escort-droid held her gaze with empty eyes.

“In another life, we could have been sisters, and I feel it’s important to acknowledge that.”

A blank stare. A blink, every six seconds.

“But as it stands, I’m a part of an important mission right now, and I cannot be swayed from my goal by my sympathy for androids who are less advanced than myself.”

Nothing.

“All right then.” Iko held out her hands. “I need your clothes.”
― Marissa Meyer, Cress Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3) by Marissa Meyer

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments “His hands are holding my cheeks, and he pulls back just to look me in the eye and his chest is heaving and he says, "I think," he says, "my heart is going to explode," and I wish, more than ever, that I knew how to capture moments like these and revisit them forever.

Because this.

This is everything.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3) by Tahereh Mafi

Jalyn (jalynnie) | 3847 comments There are some really beautiful lines in These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1) by Amie Kaufman

“You don't mention death when it's hovering near someone you love. You don't want to attract the reaper's attention.”

Every line in that book is beautiful.

Donna of the Dead by Alison Kemper
"When I get frightened, I try to be funny. I make bad jokes."
"You must be scared a lot." Veronica says.

“All right,” I said, instantly certain that I would somehow slip up and ruin everything. Hi, nice to meet you! Your granddaughter and I are just going to mess with the Dark Side for a while. I love those flowers, are they violets?

I'm liking this book so much! :)

The Chase (The Forbidden Game, #2) by L.J. Smith
"These holes, now. I think they're very interesting."
"That's because you have one for a brain."


That's funny!

Inês | 583 comments Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1) by Susan Ee

"In the long second before everyone absorbs what just happened, I see the angel rolling his eyes heavenward, like a teenager in the presence of overwhelming lameness. Some people just have no sense of gratitude."

I have a feeling I'm going to love this book :)

Inês | 583 comments The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #1) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

“Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later — no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget — we will return.”

My God, I have to re-read this book, I love it so much :) One of my favorites.

Inês | 583 comments The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1) by Maureen Johnson

"Something about her suggested that her leisure activities included wrestling large woodland animals and banging bricks together.
As I got out of the van she called, “Aurora!” in a penetrating voice that could cause a small bird to fall dead out of the sky."


Best description of a character! :)

I really liked that book! I love that she eats sausages and doughnuts for breakfast, even though everybody thinks she nuts ☺

I really liked the scene with the halloween costumes. It was hilarious. :)

Inês | 583 comments Golden by Jessi Kirby

“My favorite part of any love story is the beginning. Like Romeo convincing Juliet to kiss him, a perfect stranger, at the ball. Or Noah climbing up the Ferris wheel to ask Allie out in The Notebook. Beginnings are magical.
And in books and movies they’re magical in a way real life never is.”

Kerr (paein) My favourite line was sad:

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

"'Eight years before, Gavriel came apart.'"

The Lost (The Lost, #1) by Sarah Beth Durst

Okay, little bit of background - girl lost in a town called 'lost', everytime she drives away she ends up right back there again. she runs out of gas, gets out of her car to find a man standing on her car roof! she locks herself back in her car, and the man starts pushing her car. when she asks him what he's doing he replies "I am Sisyphus, Little Red, and you are my boulder."
Maybe you have to be there for it to be funny, but it just sounds so ridiculous after the day she's had. this town is full of nutters!


message 24: by Mei (new)

Mei (yeltminky) | 3878 comments Short background: Jason couldn't remember anything, including who he is and the people around him.

“Leo,” Jason said, “you're weird.”
“Yeah, you tell me that a lot.” Leo grinned. “But if you don't remember me, that means I can reuse all my old jokes. Come on!”
Jason figured that if this was his best friend, his life must be pretty messed uo; but he followed Leo into the museum.

Inês | 583 comments Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) by Chloe Neill

“But he’s young! What is he, twenty-eight?”
“He’s twenty-nine. And what did you think he was going to look like?”
She shrugged. “You know—old. Grizzled. Long white beard. Scruffy robes. Lovable. Smart, but a little absentminded professorish.”
I bit back a grin. “I said ‘sorcerer,’ not ‘Dumbledore.’

ha ha! talk about sterotypes! ☺


message 28: by Inês (new)

Inês | 583 comments I know, right? I found this incredibly amusing! :)

It probably doesn't help that Gandalf looks like that too! ☺


message 30: by Inês (new)

Inês | 583 comments Ahah, true! Although, in Lord of the Rings all sorcerers look like that :p

Ah, maybe that's where she got it from!




message 32: by Inês (new)

Inês | 583 comments Ahaha, so adorable! :) Exactly how I imagine sorcerers! :D

Inês | 583 comments The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2) by Richelle Mead

"As I’d told Eddie and Adrian, I didn’t usually need help from others. Needing it for something like this was especially humiliating. Rose wouldn’t need an escort, I thought. Even Angeline wouldn’t. She’d probably beat up a few pedestrians on the way, just to stay in practice."

Inês | 583 comments The Madness Underneath (Shades of London, #2) by Maureen Johnson

"I don’t know about you, but when something happens to me—good, bad, boring, it doesn’t matter—I have to tell someone about it to make it count. There’s no point in anything happening if you can’t talk about it."

Yes. Very true. :)

Normally, I'de agree. And I know this is so unfair, but something just happened to me that I feel like I shouldn't tell anyone, and it still counts. But, in general, I agree! :)

Irene (raenne) | 4929 comments Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

"You can't take back texts. If you come off all moody an dmelancholy in a text, it just sits there in your phone, reminding you of what a drag you are."

Inês | 583 comments Opposition (Lux, #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“You’re just a stupid human.” Bluish-red blood trickled from her lip. “Because that’s all you are, underneath it, just a fragile, useless human who bleeds easily.”
“Jesus. It’s like I’m a muggle to your pure-blood or something.”
She just glared at me.
I backed up, keeping an eye on her. This so wasn’t the time for Harry Potter references.
