SILVESTROVSKÝ MAWOB ŠPECIÁL: Knižné výroky 2014

Ako už býva tradíciou, mám tu pre vás tie najlepšie výroky, čo sa v mojom Kindli počas uplynulého roka nazbierali :)


She tilted her head to the side as a worried expression crossed her face. “At least I think I promise. I shall certainly try not to do anything to upset you like that.” 
Turner had a sudden vision of Miranda trying not to upset him. The vision upset him.
==========
The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever (Julia Quinn)


"To you, he's your brother. But to the rest of the female population, he has a certain appeal. I'll leave it at that." 
"He used to fart in our Mr. Turtle pool and call it a 'Jacuzzi.' How's that for appeal?" 
"Ah ... the lifestyles of the rich and famous," Corinne said with a grin.
==========
A Lot Like Love (James, Julie)


"It was so gross. You should have been there. The needle was this big, and they took out a ton of blood, and it really hurt, and Mat fainted." 
"I didn't faint!" Mat was trying to placate a very fussy baby as he came into the kitchen, but his eyes were on Nealy. 
"Almost," Lucy retorted. "You got real white and your eyes shut." 
"I was thinking." 
"About fainting."
==========
First Lady (Susan Elizabeth Phillips)


“You told your brother what’s been happening?” 
“Kind of . . . I said Horizons gave us a stupid assignment to fictionalize our problems and then described what was happening to my fake protagonist.” 
“Oh, good,” Noah said, nodding seriously. “I was afraid you’d be obvious about it.”
==========
Evolution of Mara Dyer (Michelle Hodkin)


"Kincaid? You're supposed to leave me here," she called out. "This is just a marriage of convenience, isn't it?" 
He stopped in the center of the hallway, then turned around to face her. "Aye, wife, it is a marriage of convenience. My convenience. 
==========
The Bride (Julie Garwood)


“What morning meeting do you have?” she said. “You don’t do meetings. You don’t even do mornings.”
==========
What I Did for Love (Susan Elizabeth Phillips)


Georgie gazed at her ex-husband. Bram and her father were right. Lance was like a…a giant block of tofu. He had no flavor of his own. Instead, he assumed the flavors of the people closest to him.
==========
What I Did for Love (Susan Elizabeth Phillips)


In a civilized world where there are laws, banks and supermarkets, being a paranoid schizophrenic is a major problem. But in a world where the banks and supermarkets are used by gangs as local torture stations, being a little paranoid is actually an advantage. The schizophrenic part, though, is still a problem.
==========
Angelfall  (Susan Ee)


I walk over to the bar and am reaching up to get the martini glasses from the top shelf when WHAM, I’m slammed up hard against the counter, Hal nuzzling the back of my neck. 
“Whoa, dude, slow down,” I say, trying to push him off me. I hate it when guys mistake force for passion. “Stop it. I mean it.” 
“I’ve got a surprise for you,” he whispers, slowly turning me around so I’m facing him. 
I look down. Hal’s penis. Is out. In his hand. Small, pink, and erect. Oh. My. God. 
Hal smiles at me, and then at his penis. “Do you want to touch him? He likes you.” 
I laugh out loud. “No!” 
“No?” 
“No . . . thank you?” How do you refuse an erect penis politely?
==========
Brooklyn Girls 2 (Gemma Burgess)


“I wanted to kiss you so badly that night we were in your bed. . . . God, I couldn’t sleep. I just lay there, listening to you sleep-grunt all night like a baby hippo.”
==========
Brooklyn Girls 2 (Gemma Burgess)


 A loud clatter blasts me out of my thoughts, my seat, and skin all at once. 
“Oh bloody hell, you scared me!” The deep whispery English-accented voice is coming out of a bent-over guy on the altar picking up the candlestick that he just knocked off. 
“Oh Christ! I can’t believe I just said bloody hell in church. And Christ I just said Christ! Jesus!” 
He stands up, rests the candlestick on the table, then smiles the most crooked smile I’ve ever seen, like Picasso made it. “Guess I’m damned.”
==========
I'll Give You The Sun (Jandy Nelson)


“So tell me about work—how’s it going?” 
He shook his head. “Mahmen, you don’t want to hear about that.” 
“Sure I do.” 
“I don’t want you to think my job is dangerous.”
“Blaylock, son of my beloved hellren, exactly what kind of an idiot do you think I am?” 
Blay laughed and then got serious. “Qhuinn flew an airplane tonight.” 
“Really? I didn’t know he could fly.” 
Wasn’t that the theme song for the evening. “He can’t.”
==========
Lover at Last (J.R. Ward)


“Speaking of eye surgery, do you realize you’re missing tear ducts?” 
“What? Really? And I thought I was just emotionally withdrawn.” 
==========
Cinder (Marissa Meyer)


 (Upír Xcor si bol kúpiť oblečenie na svoje prvé "rande")
“And here’s your change and receipt. You want a bag for your old stuff?” 
“Yes, please. Thank you.” 
A big white bag with a red star was passed over the console. “Thanks for coming in—my name’s Antoine, by the way. If you want to come back for shoes.” 
After shoving his former clothes inside, Xcor found himself bowing at the waist. “Your assistance has been much appreciated.” 
Antoine raised his palm like he was getting ready to do a clap on the shoulder again. But once more, he caught himself and smiled instead. “Knock her dead, my man.” 
“Oh, no.” Xcor shook his head. “That shan’t be necessary. This one I like.”
==========
The King (J.R. Ward)


“What would you give someone who likes to play the piano?” 
“A piano.” 
“Simon.” 
“A really huge metronome that could also double as a weapon?” 
Clary sighed, exasperated.
==========
City of Heavenly Fire (Cassandra Clare)


“Hold still,” she announced, wielding a bottle near his head. “In three minutes I’m going to smell your neck.” 
“Well, I never,” said Simon. “You’ve waited a long time to make your move, Fray, I’ll say that for you.”
==========
City of Heavenly Fire (Cassandra Clare)


Stars were beginning to come out, a soft prickle of light across the eastern sky. They illuminated Jace’s eyes as he looked over at Clary curiously. “Everyone knows Valentine’s son.” 
“I know, but—when Emma saw you, she acted like you were her celebrity crush. Like you were on the cover of Shadowhunters Weekly every month.” 
“You know, when they asked me to pose, they said it would be tasteful. . . .” 
“As long as you were holding a strategically placed seraph blade, I don’t see the problem,”
==========
City of Heavenly Fire (Cassandra Clare)


I fit my arms around her waist. “Don’t ruin it,” I breathe, kissing her neck lightly. My hand lowers to the small of her back, and I leave her with one last kiss to the forehead that feels more genuine than all the others. “You’ve bewitched me, body and soul.” 
She glares. “And you ruined it with a quote from Pride and Prejudice.” 
I grin. “What? I thought we were purposefully being cliché.” 
“Maybe next time, quote the book and not the film.”
==========
Kiss the Sky (Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie)


‘Do you love me?’ he asks sharply. 
I look at him with narrowed eyes. ‘Don’t ask stupid questions.’ He’s impossible sometimes. 
‘Good,’ he grunts with utter finality, returning his attention to his laptop. ‘I love you too. We get married next month.’
==========
Beneath This Man (Malpas, Jodi Ellen)


The moment Becca spoke, Liam’s hand retracted from my back as if he was awakening to the fact that he was touching me almost inappropriately. No, it was inappropriate. His hand had been resting just two inches above my shorts. Which is about five inches above my vagina. So… yeah, he was basically touching my vagina.
==========
Scoring Wilder (R.S. Grey)


He sighed, half eager and half reluctant for the battle to begin, then he absently remembered the two women who were waiting to see if he needed anything else. 
"Thank you both very much. You've been very helpful," he said, his mind going back to the appearance of the suite. He flashed a smile at both women, a warm smile that made them feel appreciated and noticed and admired at last, then he spoiled that utterly by demanding of the secretary, "If you were a woman, would you find this room attractive?" 
"I find it attractive," Joanna said stiffly, "even as a lowly robot, Mr. Farrell."
==========
Paradise (Judith McNaught)


"Miss Stern?" 
She turned back, her posture primly erect, her pencil poised for his instructions. 
Teasingly, Matt asked, "Do you have a first name?" 
"Certainly," she replied, her eyes narrowing. 
"May I use it?" 
"Of course. Although, I don't think Eleanor suits you quite as well as Matthew." 
Matt gaped at her deadpan expression and swallowed a sharp bark of laughter, uncertain whether she was serious or making a joke. 
"Do you suppose," he said gravely, "you and I could be... a little less formal around here?" 
"I assume you're suggesting a more relaxed relationship, the sort one might find more typical between a secretary and her employer?" 
"Yes, actually I was." 
She lifted a thoughtful gray brow, but this time Matt saw it—the gleam of an answering smile in her pale eyes. "Will I have to bring you cake on your birthday?" 
"Probably," he said with a sheepish grin.
==========
Paradise (Judith McNaught)


“What kind of buckle is this?” Lily fumbles with my belt, her knees on the carpet in front of my desk.
The leather chair squeaks as I roll back and push her hands away. 
“You’re out of practice,” I tease. 
She gasps. “Am not.” She points to my belt buckle that I slowly undo. “You’re either wearing a chastity belt or you put a spell on it so it won’t open from outside forces…Alohomora.” 
I freeze and give her a look. Did she…she did. She just tried to unlock it with a fucking spell. Her cheeks redden. 
“I was there when you didn’t receive your Hogwarts letter,” I remind her. She cried on her eleventh birthday, and to make her feel better I got her drunk off my dad’s expensive scotch. I was a fucking idiot.  
“Oh whatever, I know you try out spells when no one’s around.” 
I don’t deny it.
==========
Thrive (Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie)


Though she was lacking in so many other ways, Thronos decided then that she would suffice as a wife. “I do believe you in this, which means I will be marrying you. You’ll be pleased to know that torture is now off the table.”
==========
Dark Skye (Kresley Cole)


So here we are, in the family planning aisle with a cart full of sports drinks and our hands full of…
“Trojans, Ramses, Magnum…Jeez, these are worse than names for muscle cars,” Jase observes, sliding his finger along the display. 
“They do sound sorta, well, forceful.” I flip over the box I’m holding to read the instructions. 
Jase glances up to smile at me. “Don’t worry, Sam. It’s just us.” 
“I don’t get what half these descriptions mean…What’s a vibrating ring?” 
“Sounds like the part that breaks on the washing machine. What’s extra-sensitive? That sounds like how we describe George.” 
I’m giggling. “Okay, would that be better or worse than ‘ultimate feeling’—and look—there’s ‘shared pleasure’ condoms and ‘her pleasure’ condoms. But there’s no ‘his pleasure.’” 
“I’m pretty sure that comes with the territory,” Jase says dryly. “Put down those Technicolor ones. No freaking way.” 
“But blue’s my favorite color,” I say, batting my eyelashes at him. 
“Put them down. The glow-in-the-dark ones too. Jesus. Why do they even make those?” 
“For the visually impaired?” I ask, reshelving the boxes.
==========
My Life Next Door (Huntley Fitzpatrick)


I can’t imagine Josh falling for someone vanilla. Not that Josh would ever fall for me. But I wouldn’t want to ruin any chance. Even though I don’t have a chance. But just in case I do. Even though I don’t.
==========
Isla and the Happily Ever After (Stephanie Perkins)


Reaching for the hem of my shirt, I yank it roughly off of my body and toss it into the trashcan next to the dresser. As I’m reaching in one of the drawers for a clean shirt, I hear the door to the apartment open and close. I turn and hurry out of the room, wanting to get to Gwen before she goes into the bedroom and sees Emma. When I get to the living room, Gwen looks up at me, pausing in the process of taking her shoes off when she sees my bare chest. I stop and put my hands on my hips and flex, just a little bit. God I’m such an asshole.
==========
Closer to the Edge (Tara Sivec)


Five years ago I never would have had the guts to even speak to Josh. Oh no, our social orbits were nowhere near each other. He had been the sun, and I had been somewhere like Pluto, trying, but still not even a planet.
==========
Full Measures (Rebecca Yarros)


Nikolai turns the handle and swings the door wide open. Timo nearly falls forward with Luka by his side. I mentally count about six or seven heads…no wait, eight. Eight Russian guys are outside. I’m not ready for this— 
“Hey, Nikky’s in a towel,” someone else says, and in two-point-two seconds, a pair of hands whips the fabric off Nikolai and snaps it against his thigh. My jaw unhinges. His ass. His toned, bare ass. I’m staring at it. Dear God—what is going on? Nikolai doesn’t flinch or even balk. He says a few words, lightheartedly, in Russian and proceeds to return to the kitchen like he’s fully dressed. What do I do? Do I look? I cover my face with my palm, clearly peeking through my spread fingers. I want to see. No you don’t. Yes, I really do.
“Thora James.” Timo plops roughly next to me, slinging his arm around my shoulder. “Did you just stare at my brother’s dick?” Fuck my life.
==========
