"So light a fire!" Harry choked.
"Yes -- of course -- but there's no wood!" Hermione cried, wringing her hands.
"HAVE YOU GONE MAD?" Ron bellowed. "ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?"
-Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter Series) JK Rowling
"Killed by wild dogs. Who would have thought it would end so... so trivially? How anticlimactic. The claw beast on the Mists Planet, sure. At least there'd be some dignity in being taken down by that."
-The Host Stephanie Meyer
"Hello?" she ashed, tentatively. When there was no response-- not even a distant howl-- she tried again, louder. "Is anyone out there?" She shut her eyes to listen. No footsteps. "I'm hungry." No shuffling. "I need to use the bathroom." No voices. "I'm going to escape now." But no one cared. She was alone.
-Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles) Marissa Meyer
It was the building from the drawing in my brain. And if you don't think that's a weird sentence, maybe you should reread it.
-The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride Series) James Patterson
"Well," said the Captain, picking his way through the words carefully, "I think as far as I can remember we were programmed to crash on it."
"Crash?" shouted Ford and Arthur.
"Er, yes," said the Captain, "yes, it's all part of the plan, I think. There was a terribly good reason for it which I can't quite remember at the moment. It was something to do with... er..."
Ford exploded. "You're a load of useless bloody loonies!" he shouted.
"Ah yes, that was it," beamed the Captain, "that was the reason."
-The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Series) Douglas Adams
"Hercules, huh?" Percy frowned. "That guy was like the Starbucks of Ancient Greece. Everywhere you turn-- there he is."
-Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus Series) Rick Riordan
I nodded, looking at Rachel with respect. "You hit the Lord of the Titans in the eyes with a blue plastic hairbrush."
-The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson Series) Rick Riordan
"Plan F, we follow Plan F, right now."
"Is that the one where we run away?"
"Not at all. It's the one where we beat a dignified emergency retreat."
-The Whispering Skull (Lockwood & Co Series) Jonathan Stroud
"Of course." He picked up the brown bag of candy on the table. "What's your..." He trailed off as he weighed the bag in his hands. "Didn't I give you three pounds of candy?"
She smiled impishly.
"You ate half the bag!"
"Was I supposed to save it?"
"I would have liked some!"
"You never told me that."
"Because I didn't expect you to consume all of it before breakfast!"
She snatched the bag from him and put it on the table. "Well, that just shows poor judgement on your part, doesn't it?"
-Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass Series) Sarah J. Maas
