Wednesday’s Words – I’m Reading

ShareTheBookLoveI finished off my RITA and Golden Heart judging/reading and now I’m back to reading for pleasure. Here’s a few odds and ends that caught my eye or that Iffy made me write down so I wouldn’t forget. 😉

From Christine Warren’s newest book, HEART OF STONE (though she “stole” the title to Roman’s book) about a gargoyle guardian and the human female he falls in love with.

The hour-and-some minutes’ drive back to Vancouver convinced Ella of two things: one, in spite of his human size and shape, Kees could still do a pretty damned fine impression of a mute, motionless statue; and two, curiosity probably hadn’t actually killed the cat, just driven it to suicide. Ella certain intended to kill something if she didn’t get answers to at least a few of her questions pretty damned quick.

A couple of notes here. Kees rhymes with “peace” and he was in human guise because his bad ol’ gargoyle self wouldn’t fit in the SUV. 😉 This is a new series for Ms. Warren. So far, its okay. I like Ella, the heroine. She’s snarky.

A favorite line from the Princess Bride that came up in a different context:

I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I do not know what to do with the rest of my life. ~Inigo Montoya

Tell me there’s not a story there!?! Which is why I wrote it down. Inspiration for “some day.” 😀

And finally, one from me that will go in a future book but I’m not telling which one. *bwahaha*

This was a dark and silent mourning. The pale faces around him stayed closed, locked up tight. Emotion had no place here.

So what are y’all reading today? Any good words to share?

    Ooh, I love The Princess Bride – there are so many quotes there that are worth looking into further! Hmmm, I may have to watch the movie sooner rather than later.

    Nothing on the reading front for me – still trying to get over this flu 😦 But did get some stuff done on my ‘project’, so I’m going to post a bit (Jane’s just ‘finished’ her first round of an exercise video):

    Another 5 minutes of struggling and Jane finally shut the stupid thing off. No way could she continue, she could barely lift her arms. Her body folded and she crumpled to the floor. She rolled over to a spread eagle position not giving a rat’s ass about the sweat stain that would rival the best police chalkline artist’s attempts. She figured if they found her dead, she would have saved someone a lot of work.

    I’m reading Once in a Lifetime by Jill Shalvis and loving it. Can’t think of any quotes right now tho.

    I love The Princess Bride so much!!! I still have the copy I “borrowed” from my college library my freshman year…yeah I’ve been out of college 21 years now. Pretty sure I more than paid for that book in that time.

  3. Happy Hump Day- Silver
    I finished Heart of Stone sunday, can’t wait for the next-I love the humor between them, I love gargoyles and would love to go the Paris and see the Notre Dam.
    I just finished Burn for me by Cynthia Eden I had trouble staying with it.
    JM Madden and others have a Valentine Military Anthology coming will read it next.
    Have a great day!!

  4. Great quotes today, Silver. Don’t worry. We’ll find you a better title. ;o)

    All I got this morning is a quote from my recently finished (yay) rewrite of Wrongful Termination:
    “I loved him so much. He was the one man who finally showed me what real love could be like. And I missed him desperately. When you came along, you seemed so much like him that it was love at first sight,” she said. “But love at first sight never works. Not for long. I had to love you for who you really were or not at all. …”

Got something to say?
