Well, I don't think I need much intro, I hope you like this collection of quotes from swoony boys! It used to be swoony quotes (from swoony boys) but now it's just a collection of awesomely and sometimes swoony quotes from these super-swoony boys*.
See Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.
Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar
He exhales, then leans forward, reaching under the table to hold my knee. 'I didn't mean that. I want to be here. You know what I kept thinking about while I was away? When we went for a surf the morning after - how I felt coming up from the beach with you afterwards. I was thinking, 'How good is this?''~I don't think I can get over how much I adored this book, and Ryan is definitely not your cookie-cutter YA love interest. In fact, I don't think he counts as YA, but oh boy, I have been fighting off bloggers for this man. ;)
ft. Dave from A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley (US version)
"You think she'd go out with anyone because she's not like you. She's gorgeous. Fucking gorgeous. You've spent too long in this place to see"~this is from Rose's POV, and Dave is talking about Charlie. Uhm I think my heart just skipped 20 beats. I mean he calls her fucking gorgeous and I'm like *dies*
ft. Alan Ryves from The Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan
"Love always costs more than you can afford to pay," he said. "And it's always worth the price."~Alan, marry me.
ft. Finnikin from Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Sir Topher finally looked up. 'Because any hope beyond that, my boy, would be too much. I feared we would drown in it.'~I think this quote speaks volumes about this character, his perseverance, hope, determination and so so much more makes him very awesome.
'Then I choose to drown,' Finnikin said. 'In hope. Rather than float into nothing.'
I haven't done this in too long! Look out for part four soon ;) What do you think of these quotes? And no need to try and take these boys from me, you will fail :p
