It’s day 4 of the Summer Lovin’ Readathon, and today’s topic is…
Share a quote from your current read or tell us about a book that really pulled on your heart strings. What was it about that book/quote that made you cry?
Well, shucks. I’m not reading anything right now since I just finished a book, BUT I’ll share with you a book that I finished about 2 days ago that became one of my top, all-time favorite books ever… LOSING HOPE by Colleen Hoover!!! Aaahhh I don’t know how to express how much I loved that book. I’ll be posting my review of it soon, so be on the lookout for that!
So. Which quote to choose? I have so many to choose from. I practically highlighted the entire book. Seriously. I think Losing Hope is the book that I highlighted the most quotes in. I probably highlighted over a hundred things. It’s just too heartfelt and poignant and deep and sad and happy, and all narrated by my favorite book boyfriend ever.
The sizzlin’ hot, yummylicious, droolworthy Dean Holder. Ahem, where was I? Ah, yes, Dean Holder. This boy. If he were to appear in front of me right now, I would hand over my heart to him and say, “Here. Take it. It’s yours.” *strokes gorgeous his face, cries, and runs away*
But of course he’s NOT REAL, which is the greatest sin in the whole world.
I cried buckets at the end of Losing Hope. No tears on my pillow, but they were soaked in about 4 pieces of tissues. I can’t share which quotes that made me cry, since those would be spoilers, BUT I can share with you my favorite, non-spoilery ones!
I’m pretty sure it’s too soon to love her, but shit. She’s got to stop doing and saying these unexpected things that make me want to fast forward whatever’s going on between us. Because I want to kiss her and make love to her and marry her and make her have my babies and I want it all to happen tonight.
But then we’ll be out of firsts, and the firsts are the best part. Good thing I’m patient.
“I need to know for sure that you’re feeling every single thing that I’m feeling the moment my lips touch yours. Because I want your first kiss to be the best first kiss in the history of first kisses.”
Being with her had me thinking about tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and next year and forever.
And my all-time favorite quote:
“Fuck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers.”
