Question: Can You Quote a Book Without Looking?

Posted October 17, 2013 by Carmel in Question / 5 Comments


I don’t have an overly awesome memory for things like book quotes given the sheer number of novels I read on a yearly basis. That’s what GoodReads is for. But, there are definitely a few that have stuck with me over the long haul. Here are a few of my favourite werewolf quotes:

[quote]You forget, darling. I am the local psychopath.[/quote]

Clayton Danvers, Bitten by Kelley Armstrong

[quote]“What do you eat?” “Baby bunnies.” She narrowed her eyes, so I grinned and said, “Adult bunnies, too. I’m an equal-opportunity bunny-eater.”[/quote]

Sam Roth, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

[quote]What the hell kind of name is Kitty for a werewolf?[/quote]

Cormac, Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn

[quote]I’d like to give you my heart, but since that might be inconvenient, I’ve brought you someone else’s.[/quote]

Rafe Lowell, Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

  1. “Just one time….When you know who I am. Let me be your man.” ― Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

    “My name is Gin, and I kill people.” ― Jennifer Estep, Spider’s Revenge

    “You can work with me—or you can wade through the blood and bodies after I’m done.” ― Jennifer Estep, Spider’s Bite

    “Always want you, Chessiebomb. Always.” ― Stacia Kane, Sacrificial Magic

    “Tink’s a Disney whore” ― Kim Harrison, Dead Witch Walking

    “Lucifer’s bouncing balls, Kitten, not again!” ― Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave

    These are the ones that always come to mind. Sometimes I forget which books they come from within their respective series.

  2. I agree with Jen and Carmel. I love those quotes.

    There are a ton of t-shirt and bumper sticker quotes from the Charley Davidson series. “Genius has its limitations. Insanity… not so much.” “I stopped fighting my inner demons. We’re on the same die now.” “Never know on death’s door. Ring the doorbell then run. He totally hates that.”

    Here are some others that I always thing about:

    “I talk to myself every once in a while. Give myself very good advise. Sometimes I even take it.” ~ Anita Blake, Guilty Pleasures

    “Never trust a mechanic who drives new cars. They’re either charging too much money for their work, or they can’t keep an old car running – maybe both” ~ Mercy Thompson, Blood Bound

    My all-time favorite – “Ask me if I sparkle and I’ll kill you where you stand” ~ Bones, This Side of the Grave.

  3. There are so many good one’s out there! Some of my favorites are:

    “The problem with having evil minions is that minions are stupid” ~ Larissa Ione, Desire Unchained

    “Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty…” ~ Ilona Andrews, Magic Bites

    “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” ~ JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    “What the hell was that?” I gasped. “Premature inflammation,” he replied. “Happens sometimes. Very embarrassing. I don’t like to talk about it.” ~ Jeaniene Frost This Side of the Grave

    “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.’Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone’ he told me ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had'” – The Great Gatsby
    I don’t know why but somehow I can’t get it out of my head.
