My Never-Ending Booknotes will feature my favorite lines/dialogue/quotes from the books I already finished or currently reading. I’m going to post every Wednesday, and if you want to share your favorite quotes, please feel free to do so. I would be so happy and excited to read them. Who knows, we might have the same favorites! 🙂
Today, I’ll pick some lines from my most favorite Paranormal Romance book ever, Shade by the most awesome author I’ve ever met (okay, not actually met cos I am miles away from the US, but she’s actually the most lovable author I know!) Ms. Jeri Smith-Ready. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve listened and read these lines… particularly the one special line. I know it, remember it, and memorized it by heart. There are so many memorable and heartfelt moments in the series, but I don’t know why this one sticks to me the most. Anyway, here’s my NEBN for this week:
He looked at me across the courtroom. “As for Aura, I hung out with her after I died, and even though she made me happy, it killed me not to touch her, it killed me to know that we had no future. And now, because I died, I’ve lost her.” He waited for the boy to translate, then addressed the jury. “I can’t touch, but I can still feel. And I tell you, if this were my life…I wouldn’t want to live.”
“So did I know I could die?” he said. “Absolutely not. With all I had, with all I could’ve had–” He gazed at me what felt like an eternity, “Why would I ever take that chance?”
If you haven’t read Shade, Shift and Shine, go and get a copy now. Don’t miss this amazing series.
