Valentine's Day?

2.14.2012
So it's February 14th. Otherwise known as Valentine's Day, or Single's Awareness Day, as I like to call it. I don't have much faith in Valentine's Day - if you want an excuse for your boyfriend to take you out, well, you've got your birthday. Or every other day of the year.

But because I have absolutely nothing planned for today, I decided to post some of my favorite quotes - from YA books, of course - that relate to love. Or relationships. Or stuff like that. In no particular order except the ones I found them in on my Goodreads :P

"You love me. Real or not real?"

"Real."
~Katniss and Peeta, Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

What do you say when someone takes on a really bad ass, murdering sucker for you? There just aren't words for that.
~Dru, Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

He pivoted, gaze following me as I crossed to the shower and turned on the cold water, so it would drown out our conversation without steaming up the room.

Great," he muttered."Now they're going to think we're showering together. Maybe we can just tell them we were washing off the crawl space dirt and trying to conserve water.”
~Derek and Chloe, The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

“Damn, Claire. Warn a guy before you do a face-plant on the floor next time. I could have looked all heroic and caught you or something."
~Shane, Glass Houses by Rachel Caine

Claire stretched out against the wall and kissed it. "Glad to see you, too," she whispered, and pressed her cheek against the smooth surface. It almost felt like it hugged her back.

"Dude, it's a house," Shane said from behind her. "Hug somebody who cares.” 
~Shane and Claire, Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

“Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it.”
~Peeta to Katniss, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I clench his hands to the point of pain. "Stay with me."

His pupils contract to pinpoints, dialate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy. "Always," he murmurs.
~Peeta and Katniss, Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

“This thing with us is the only real thing I've had in a long time. You're the only real thing." He raised our hands and kissed my knuckles. "And I'm done pretending I don't want you.” 
~Archer to Sophie, Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

“Oof," he says.
"Hey, there's a bed there."
"Thanks for the warning."
"No problem.” 
~Anna and Etienne, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. “I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I’m alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away.” One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. “I guess I should’ve warned you that I have a slight possessive streak.” 
~Ash to Meghan, The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

“Will you show me what you really look like? You don't sparkle, do you?"
~Katy to Daemon, Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. "The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.” 
~Daemon to Katy, Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

~Zoey~
(So I notice there's a little formatting issue where there isn't a space between some quotes. There's spaces between them all in the draft, so I dunno what the issue is -_-)

  2. Awesome quotes! I LOVE Shane and all the hilarious things he says. This is making me want the next MV book now. :D And that Derek and Chloe quote is probably my favourite from the whole series.

    Great post! And don't you worry - Blogger hardly ever listens to me either. It's so annoying.

  5. I love the quotes. Thanks for a nice fun Valentines Day post. I think that V-day is kinda just a lame excuse for retailers to make money. We should love each other every day!! ♥
