I’m the type of reader who never highlight passages or memorize quotes. I would go so far as to say, I never really care too much about them. But sometimes, there are words that capture a moment or emotion so perfectly even my forgetful brain couldn’t help but remember the lines and relive all the feels.
Here are more unforgettable quotes from my favorite books.

“Nobody else exists to me when he lands. Everything stops existing when he takes off, as if he takes it all with him when he goes up there, to places I’ll never see again. That vast open non-place of emptiness that only becomes significant when his comrades are there, too, and of course the enemy fighters guarding the bombers bound for Berlin.”Skybound – Aleksandr Voinov
“…And I want to learn Russian. I wasn’t kidding about that.”

And Casey said, “Yeah, man. I love you too.”How To Be A Normal Person – T.J. Klune
The dew was still heavy on the grass when they left the barn. Cai looked at the glistening strands of marram in disbelief — that a world could be transformed before the day could properly begun.

Cooper nodded, then let his head tip back, gasping, when Oliver pulled him closer still and moved to nuzzle over the scars on his belly. “Why?”

He stood, their bodies pressed together, and he leaned in so his mouth was hovering over Cooper’s. “In that case, you scare me, too.”
Cooper’s heart pounded and he tingled all over. “Yeah?”
He felt Oliver’s smile on his lips. “Special Agent Dayton, I’m absolutely terrified, and I couldn’t be happier about it.”The Wolf At The Door – Charlie Adhara

Mine. My wolf, Lucas thought.
Really? The man’s eyebrows rose. Am I?
Yes. Lucas found himself answering firmly. You are. My wolf.
Brave, beautiful boy. The man in the chair was laughing, not unkindly, but amused for sure.
Don’t you want to be mine? Lucas asked, boldly. Boldly, because, after all, what did he have to offer this amazing man?
What would you do with me if I was…yours? The man asked without moving those sculpted lips.
Anything. Everything. Lucas answered.The Vampire’s Club 2 – X. Aratare
