swoony boy Quotes

Because I love you guys so much, and I know you are probably as obsessed (oh come on, that's exaggerating!) with fictional boys as I am I though I'd just put together a short post containing quotes and segments that just make my heart melt.

ft: W.W. Hale from Heist Society (by Ally Carter)

Then, just as suddenly, [Kat] realized she wasn’t alone.

“If you die of pneumonia, I’m pretty sure there are at least a dozen guys who’ll try to kill me and make it look like an accident.”

Kat studies Hale’s reflection in the bakery window. He didn’t smile. He didn’t scold. He simply handed her a cup of hot chocolate and draped his heavy coat around her shoulders.
~I want my own Hale! Just the perfect mixture of swoon and cute.

ft: Milo from Fall for Anything (by Courtney Summers)

Milo would do almost anything for me. He’s been my best friend since second grade, when a brief but weird obsession with the original Star Trek got him sort of ostracized at the same time all the girls in our class decided a girl named Eddie must actually really be a boy.
~Milo is amazing, but this quote seriously doesn't do him justice.

ft: Dash from Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares (by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan)

I was horribly bookish, to the point of coming right out and saying it, which I knew was not socially acceptable. I particularly loved the adjective bookish, which I found other people used about as often as ramrod or chum or teetotaller.
~Oh, he had me at bookish. I love me some smart boys xD

ft: Jonah Griggs from On the Jellicoe Road (by Melina Marchetta)

When I turn around he cups my face in his hands and he kisses me so deeply that I don’t know who is breathing for who, but his mouth and tongue taste like warm honey. I don’t know how long it lasts, but when I let go of him, I miss it instantly.
~I think I just died a little inside. I can’t even express my love for this boy.

I wonder who didn’t see the Griggs one coming :p (if they’ve read the book and my blog, that is, hehe)

Well, I hope you enjoyed! I might do this again sometime, I don’t really have the best quotes I hoped to have but I’m kind of on a time thing since I wanted to get a post up today. Which was your favourite? And do you have any swoony boys I should dig up quotes for??

PS- while on the subject of quotes, please help me with choosing Yearbook Quotes? Pretty pretty please? and to those who have responded, a huuuge thanks, excellent food for thought! :)

    Okay, maybe I shouldn't have said "only." I have a long list of heart-throbs. ;D

  14. If you are getting your own Hale, then I want my own Hale, cuz he is just too cute. I loved the banter back and forth between him and Kat when she was trying to guess at his name. *le swoon*
