“She looked at them, at the three males who meant everything—more than everything. Then she smiled with every last shred of courage, of desperation, of hope for the glimmer of that glorious future. “Let’s go rattle the stars.” 
- Sarah J. Maas, Queen of Shadows 

“Jesper knocking his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. "Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I'm going to get Wylan's ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute just so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost."
Brekker's lips quirked. "I'll just hire Matthias' ghost to kick your ghost's ass."
"My ghost won't associate with your ghost," Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.”
- Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

“It was Ruby's favorite kind of story: where the boys lost and the girls won and got a souvenir in the bargain.”
- Nova Ren Suma, Imaginary Girls

“One guy wore nothing but a Speedo. He’d painted himself blue and was armed only with a baseball bat. Across his chest were the words COME AT ME, BRO.”
- Rick Riordan, The Sword of Summer

"She had been desperate to feel something, anything. She needed a window, because she had broken her heart throwing it at locked doors.”
- Amy Zhang, Falling into Place

“If I were an enemy, and I started bearing down on you like this," he draws his sword, stretches the tip towards me, takes a single step in my direction, "what would you do?" Possibilities race through my head. Should I look for a weapon? Dodge and come up behind his guard? Trip him? Insult his mother?”
- Rae Carson, The Crown of Embers

“Sometimes people stop loving you. And that's the kind of darkness that never gets fixed, no matter how many moons rise again, filling the sky with a weak approximation of light.”
- Lauren Oliver, Vanishing Girls

“No mourners. No funerals. Among them, it passed for 'good luck.”
- Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows
