Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“There is a part of me that envies you, to be returning to the living, breathing world. Think of me when you go into the mountains,” she said softly, her gaze far away. “When you look out over the blue valleys to the far horizon, say my name that I might see them, too, through your eyes. And remember as in all of us, it is only your capacity for wickedness that makes selflessness possible.”

#2:

“Sometimes I wonder if it’s even Dorothy’s fault., or if this place was just rotten from the start, underneath everything. If maybe that’s the price you pay for magic.”

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“I had one weakness: kindness. And kindness is a weakness. I can see that now. But it’s a weakness I’m still not sure I’d want to give up entirely.”

#2:

“I knew, on some level, that what I was seeing was the real Oz. I had pulled back the curtain and stepped through it, but instead of finding a humbug wizard, I’d found the controls to the whole operation—and it turned out the whole operation was made out of what appeared to be magical silly string.”

Dorthy Must Die by Danielle Paige
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“He just stared at me, his gaze intense. I couldn’t look away any more than I could move my arm. Energy crackled between us, and I felt a strange pull to him. Moth to flame. Magnet to magnet. Stupid girl to impossible, slightly mean witch boy. Wizard. Whatever.”

#2:

“And you’re right. You are on your own. We all are, and we all have to learn it sooner or later. If you have to be alone, though, wouldn’t you rather be alone among friends?”

Rhett by J.S. Cooper
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“I wanted to tell her that I didn’t want anything to change between us.”

#2:

“I could have patted myself on the back. It was so easy with women. Give them a few compliments and smiles and they were like putty in my hand. Everyone aside from Clementine. It was like she was immune to my charm. It had never bothered me before, but now it was fucking annoying me. Why wasn’t she into me and hanging out? Why had she never been into me? I frowned as I thought back to high school and the moment when I’d turned into the boy all the girls wanted. Clementine had never started acting all girly on me. “

The Broken Destiny by Carlyle Labuschagne
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“With him I couldn’t be anything but myself and that scared the crap out of me, because I had never existed like that before.”

#2:

“With him I couldn’t be anything but myself and that scared the crap out of me, because I had never existed like that before.”

#3:

“You cannot know what light is if you have not experienced darkness.
How could you know what happiness feels like if you know not what it means to be sad?
Right does not exist without wrong Hate exists because there is love.
You are either driven by fear or love.
To love is not to fear.
It is to be godly.”

The Blue Moon Narthex by N.J. Donner
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“Fires all around them limited their path through the rubble. Screams and sirens accompanied by the crackling flames filled the evening. Their embers were consumed by the dense black smoke. And then Cole knew the oil cars had ignited. A dew faint outlines of others reeled through the smoldering wreckage.

#2:

“The dark decorative carved wooden molding was cracking. The large floor rugs were well-worn and starting to fade. Maps lined the the wall, denoting railroad lines crisscrossing the nation. But these maps had additional offshoot lines. Had Father been planning an expansion? Pins dotted the maps with notes. On the shelf by the desk sat a vase of wilted lilies, He reached forward one of the limp flowers, and then drew his hand back.”

#3:

“The narthex illuminated. A loud noise came from inside the fireplace. They all pulled away, startled at the what sounded like stones grinding against one another as the fire logs slid back and the hearth split at the mortar seams.”

Confess by Colleen Hoover
Goodreads Button with Shadow

#1:

“And I like it. I like it when he stares at me, because it’s been a long time since I’ve felt beautiful in someone else’s eyes. And right now, he’s watching me so closely and with such a satisfied, heated look in his eyes, I would be fine if we spent the rest of the night just doing this and not speaking at all.”

#2:

“I think love is a hard word to define,” I say to her. “You can love a lot of things about a person but still not love the whole person.”

#3:

“Selflessness. It should be the basis of every relationship. If a person truly cares about you, they’ll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.”
