It won’t come as a surprise that we Starcrossed ladies ADORE quotes – so much that one of us printed her favorite quotes and plastered them everywhere in her living-room *cough* CHELSEA *cough* … That’s why I am ECSTATIC to introduce our new weekly rendezvous, the Quote of the Week.
What is it, you’re asking?
Well, that’s pretty simple : every week we’ll share one of our favorite quotes, depending on the theme we’ll choose. WE HAVE SO MANY OMG *hyperventilates*
But let’s get started, alright? The theme for this week is :
~ a quote in a Contemporary novel that made our heart beat faster ~
“I was born seventeen years ago”, I tell him. “Do you think people have noticed that I’m around?”
“I notice when you’re not. Does that count?”
About the book
Francesca is stuck at St. Sebastian’s, a boys’ school that pretends it’s coed by giving the girls their own bathroom. Her only female companions are an ultra-feminist, a rumored slut, and an impossibly dorky accordion player. The boys are no better, from Thomas, who specializes in musical burping, to Will, the perpetually frowning, smug moron that Francesca can’t seem to stop thinking about.
Then there’s Francesca’s mother, who always thinks she knows what’s best for Francesca—until she is suddenly stricken with acute depression, leaving Francesca lost, alone, and without an inkling of who she really is. Simultaneously humorous, poignant, and impossible to put down, this is the story of a girl who must summon the strength to save her family, her social life and—hardest of all—herself.
“A thousand of those girls”—he made a slight motion with his head toward Braeden—“ couldn’t even make up one of you.”
“Romeo,” I whispered, caught up in the molten blue flame flickering in his gaze.
“You know I was like that once. I’ve never made a secret of it. But you’re it for me now, Rim. There’s no one else. There never could be.”
About the book
It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.
It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before. The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone. Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it. And we’re happy. Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me. As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened. I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.
