Top 10 of 2011:
A Week of Looking Back…and Looking Forward.
Today is the final day of Top 10 Week.
The final topic? What books I'm looking forward to in 2012!
1. Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost
2. A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison
"For a few minutes we kiss, deep in the chasm, with the roar of water all around us. And we rise, hand in hand, I realize that if we had both chosen differently, we might have ended up doing the same thing, in a safer place, in gray clothes instead of black ones.”
“And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me.”
“I know part of what turns me on so hard, makes me so violent with lust, is that he's dangerous. I fell for the bad guy. I'm crazy about the one who's trouble. The alpha that doesn't play well with others and doesn't take orders from anyone.”
“I’ll tell you something about true love. There’s no science to it. It’s as natural as the sky.”
"You’re the one thing I’ve got right. You’re what I’ve been waiting for, Pigeon.”
"You possess other people's...bodies."
"I'll teach you how to defend yourself, how to maim a man. We can use Po as a model.'
“Makin' mistakes ain't a crime, you know. What's the use of having a reputation if you can't ruin it every now and then?”
“Yelena, you've driven me crazy. You've caused me considerable trouble and I've contemplated ending your life twice since I've known you...but you slipped under my skin, invaded my blood and seized my heart.”
“That took balls."
"Fire found herself stretching out with the feelers of her mind to soothe a king who was frightened. Nash perceived what she was doing."
