A-Z of Favourite Quotes
2022 Blogging from A to Z challenge badge

Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge! I’ll be posting every day except Sundays throughout April. This year, my readers voted for the theme “My Favourite Book Quotes”. So I’ve collected together the quotations that move me, inspire me and make me smile. I hope you enjoy them!

For letter K, I’ve chosen to feature quotes by fantasy author Kiersten White. I read her novel Paranormalcy years ago, and more recently I was gifted her Buffy the Vampire novel Slayer, which I’ve unfortunately not had time to read yet.

My Favourite Quotes by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

“Tasers are a one-size-fits-all paranormal butt-kicking option. Mine’s pink with rhinestones.”

“If you fail to report within the next 12 hours. you will be terminated. If you attack any humans, you will be terminated. If you attempt to remove the tracking device, you will be terminated. We look forward to working with you.”

“Why does everyone keep asking me that?” Seriously, did I look like some sort of pyscho assassin? Maybe it was the pink sneakers. Or the heart earrings?”

“Apparently being a mermaid is dead dull. I watched The Little Mermaid with her once a few years ago—she thought it was freaking hilarious. She couldn’t stop laughing about the shell-bra thing, given that mermaids aren’t mammals.”

“Eyes like streams of melting snow, cold with the things she does not know. Heaven above and Hell beneath, liquid flames to hide her grief. Death, death, death with no release. Death, death, death with no release.”

“Faeries are unaffected by alcohol, but much to her surprise—and the faeries’ undoing—they get very, very drunk on carbonation. Using copious amounts of Coke, she was able to discover a single faerie’s true name.”

“You cannot control faeries. Can. Not. They aren’t logical or rational. They don’t obey the same laws (physical, social, emotional, traffic – you name it) that we do.”

“I used to think I was protecting the world, too. But it wasn’t that simple. Nothing was. Who were we to decide that anyone or anything didn’t deserve the spark of life they had been given?”
