 "'I want you.' Reyn's voice, low and insistent, seemed to come at me from all angles. And no wonder, because he was looming over me obnoxiously as I filled a big glass jar with basmati rice from the twenty-five-pound sack we keep in the pantry. Look at me: 'we.'" -Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan
 "In the dream, there's sorrow. I feel it over everything else, a terrible grief that chokes me, blurs my sight, weighs down my feet as I move through the tall grass. I walk among pine trees up a gentle slope. It's not the hillside from my vision, not the forest fire, not anyplace I've seen before. This is something new." -Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
"There are so many ways it could have all turned out differently. Imagine if she hadn't forgotten the book. She wouldn't have had to run back into the house while Mom waited outside with the car running, the engine setting loose a cloud of exhaust in the late-day heat." -The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

  1. Hmmm, what could have turned out differently? Interesting first lines about fate.

    Love the cover of the physical paperback you're reading: Withering Tights.

  2. Yep, very interesting! And what could have turned out differently was if she could get on her original plane ride-she was 4 minutes late. But if she didn't miss her first plane, she never would have met him! Yep :)

    And I love it too! Just wish I could get more into the book!
