Smoke and Lyrics by Holly Hall

Favorite Quotes

“An outstretched hand isn’t always a helping one. Sometimes it’s there to drag you under.”

“I won’t drag you under. But I’ll damn sure follow you down.”

Sometimes you rush headlong into things, and you crash and burn. You hurt, you make changes, you adapt. But perhaps the worst possible thing you can do is go about life without living, without loving, and wonder what happened if you had.
They say the people you meet leave a mark; the ones you love, an imprint. Lindsey Farrar left a fucking chasm in her wake. A gaping hole I have no hope filling, not even with Tennessee whiskey.

“Take me into my room, Vaughn. Take control so I don’t have to. I want you to. I want you to lay me down on that bed and take what you want. You want to, right?” I looked deep into his hard eyes and shivered at the heat I found in them. “I bet you’ve thought about it. Fucking the hostile Princess of the Boardwalk into submission.”
“I’ve wanted you just like this. That smart mouth of yours sweet. That sexy body of yours mine to do with as I please. And I don’t like wanting something I can’t have.”
“Annie.”
“Yeah?”
“Do you sell a hole in the ground?”
“Uh …”
“I’d really like to buy one. You know so it can swallow me.”
“Well … I’ll have to ask Bob if we sell those.”
“I was just wondering.”
“What?”
“If it’s uncomfortable.”
“If what’s uncomfortable?”
“Having your head that far up your ass.”
“You’re a real comedian today, Lawson.”

Favorite Quotes

“Mindless, dirty, filthy sex. It’s the only kind of sex, the only kind of intimacy I can handle.”
“I just want to feel loved, cherished and wanted. I want someone to look at me like nothing else in the world exists. I want someone to want me, to need me like I need air. I just want to be loved.”
“She opens her eyes just as Jet pushes in further, her back arches and she lets out the most animalistic moan. It’s carnal, sensual and totally erotic and I almost come in her hand. ”  
“Shayla is tiny, with small perky tits. Lacy is long and lean, with huge fake tits.  The contrast between them is striking but I don’t feel a thing, neither of them turns me on. What’s getting me hard is their unquestioning reactions to my orders. They’ve done exactly what I’ve told them so far, and their boyfriends have gone right along with it. It’s the power, the control.  I know it’s fucked, but it’s just the way I am.

Favorite Quotes

Fuck it, I thought.  If I am going to embrace my inner slut, I may as well bear hug her till she can’t breathe.
Regardless of my feelings on the subject, I was a girl who’d just been banged to within an inch of her life and had the ice pack on her crotch to prove it.

I caught his eyes and when I did, he muttered, “She’s cute, a smartass, makes great brownies and swallows.”  “Is this a stamp of approval?” I asked.  “Like you don’t know a man gets off on a woman who takes all of him in her mouth.”
“All my life,” I whispered, “I was the girl who everyone thought had everything or could get it.  But the only thing I ever wanted was a man like you.  You’re the best man I’ve ever met, Mickey Donovan. . . . And you’re mine.”
“Why is it when you’re a smartass I wanna fuck you more than I normally wanna fuck you?”
“And in return, I’ll try to be more understanding.” He smiled back but his was different.  His was sexy.  “You could.  Or you could get pissed, stick up for yourself, get in my face, be a smartass and earn yourself a couple of orgasms.”

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Favorite Quotes

When it comes to girls (and in Colin’s case, it so often did), everyone has a type. Colin Singleton’s type was not physical but linguistic: he liked Katherines. And not Katies or Kats or Kitties or Cathys or Rynns or Trinas or Kays or Kates or, God forbid, Catherines. K-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E. He had dated nineteen girls. All of them had been named Katherine. And all of them- every single solitary one- had dumped him.
I love you, Katherine. The name sounded different in his mouth when spoken to her; it became not the name with which he had been so long obsessed, but a word that described only her, a word that smelled like lilacs, that captured the blue of her eyes and the length of her eyelashes.
What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable? How very odd, to believe God gave you life, and yet not think that life asks more of you than watching TV.
It rather goes without saying that Katherine drank her coffee black. Katherines do, generally. They like their coffee like they like their ex-boyfriends: bitter.
He wanted to draw out the moment before the moment- because as good as kissing feels, nothing feels as good as the anticipation of it.
“I just want to do something that matters. Or be something that matters. I just want to matter.”
He missed that, too, and it hadn’t even happened. He missed his imagined future. You can love someone so much, he thought. But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.
“And the moral of the story is that you don’t remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened.”

Favorite Quotes

His next move was to kiss me slowly, sweetly, and pull back to ask in belated concern, “You okay? I wasn’t-”

I covered his mouth with my hand, smirking in satisfaction. “I might have to piss you off more often.”

“We’ll see which one of us can be the most obstinate, Hannah, because, babe, I’m never giving up on us. If it takes a week, a month, a year, whatever, the future is us. I’m spending the rest of my life waking up in the morning with you beside me and getting through each day knowing that when the sky turns dark I’ll be spending the night inside you.”
