Quotes: March Favorite so far...

You all know I love my quotes. Here are a few I've chosen from the books I've either read, or I'm reading this month. The reason behind choosing them? Well, these either made me laugh, smile, or think, plus they will give you clues about the characters or the stories.

Family... it is a bitch. [...] Summer vacations...if you thought about it, what kind of people actually gathered together at a lake with cabins and all that crap anyway? Hadn't they ever watched Friday the 13th? Jason? Hockey masks? Machetes? A good time for me, yeah -- oh hell yeah -- but not as much for the members of your average Prius-driving middle class. 
Stupidity is everywhere. [Cal - Doubletake by Rob Thurman]

How could I be so petty? he wondered. It's only a word, right? He closed his eyes and tried to sleep, but the word seemed to be imprinted on his eyelids in flowing, femmy script.
Mangina
His balls recoiled, drawing up into his body as if he'd just been plunged into a cold swimming pool. [Waafrneeaasuu!! from Strawberries and Other Erotic Fruits by Jerry L. Wheeler]

Even if you're not attracted to a woman, something in your blood compels you to conquer her, to find her weaknesses and exploit them until she surrenders to your charm like every other woman. 
That wasn't true. He didn't need to charm every female he came in contact with. He just happened to be a sociable kind of guy. [Seth - Dalton's Undoing by RaeAnne Thayne]

A man's fate, as you no doubt feel deeply in your present circumstances, is rarely in his own hands. But you have already shown, again and again, that you put duty before desire, as a man must. [Father - Purgatory by Jeff Man]

  1. LOL, while reading Doubletake, there were so many passages that I wanted to mark down as quotes. The only problem is that you really need context for them to be funny ^_^;

    1. Cal could fill out a whole book of quotes all by himself! Some of them are better than others. This one just gives a bit of an idea of what the overall book is about, and it captures his snark. LOL! Love that guy. :)

  4. Great quotes! I'm reading River Marked ATM and don't want to speak out of turn, but maybe my UF block is over? If so, I so need to try Rob Thurman's books!

    1. Christine, Cal is a hoot! That statement is typical... (there are better ones though). The Prius driving statement killed me! LOL on your car -- watch out for hockey masks when you go camping. *g*
