Origin & Opposition – Quotes & Thoughts

I finally finished reading Opposition today and oh my gosh – the feels! I am very pleased with this series as a whole. There were so many twists and turns, but the one thing that stayed pretty consistent was the love between Katy and Daemon *swoon*

I admire their loving relationship so much. So, to commemorate finishing the series, I am going to post my favorite quotes form the fourth book, Origin, and the fifth and final book, Opposition. I hope you all enjoy! Also, if you haven’t read this series yet – please do! If you like alien romance stories, I definitely recommend it. If you love love, you will love this series to pieces.

origin

“I want a years-worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up.”

“Did you think you could stop me? I’ll burn the world down to save her.”

“So I was thinking, there’s eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day, right? There’s one thousand, four hundred and forty minutes in a day…There’s one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?…I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you…I want a year’s worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up.”

“Oh shit. ET just phoned home.”

“I’m Dee Black. I’m the sister of the douchebag known as Daemon.” She smiled brightly. “But you probably already know that.”
“That he’s a douchebag or that he’s your brother?” Archer asked innocently. “The answer is yes to both.”

“Sometimes words were cheap. They could be powerful, but in those rare occasions like now, words meant nothing.”

“Listen to me, Daemon. This isn’t your fault. I wouldn’t change a damn thing. Okay? Yes, things have sucked, but I’d go through it all again if I had to. There are things I would want to change, but not you – never you. I love you. That’s never going to change.”

“Sporks are only used in the most dire situations.”

“His kisses really did have the power to change lives. Not that I’d admit that. His ego was ginormous as it was.”

“I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world – in any world – would be stronger than my love for you?”

“I think trust anyone makes us all a little crazy.”

“Ninety-nine-point-nine percent of the time I am thinking something that would turn the tips of your ears pink.”

“This kind of love was the real deal, stronger than a whole planet full of psycho aliens and an entire government.”

“Wow. I feel like Morgan Freeman should be doing a voice over right now, like, ‘Their weakest link is something already here,”” I said, and when several sets of eyes settled on me with identical looks of confusion, I flushed. “What? It’s from War of the Worlds, and I think it’s totes appropriate for the situation.”

“Love was a gift.”

“You’d get jealous if she hugged a tree,” Archer tossed out.
“Maybe.” Daemon coasted to a stop in a parking space behind the car. “I’m needy like that.”

The glass shattered in Lotho’s hand.
Daemon frowned as shards of glass tinkled to the floor.
“And that is why we can’t have nice things.”

“What are you dong?”
I stopped what had become an impromptu dance. “Sorry. Nervous.”
“Don’t apologize.” He arched a brow. “It was interesting. Kind of reminded me of a flailing Muppet Baby.”

“Jesus. It’s like I’m a muggle to your pure-blood or something.”

“You can’t judge an entire race of beings on what a small percentage of people have done.”

“The most beautiful people, ones whose beauty is only rivaled by what is inside of them, are the ones who are quietly unaware of it.”

“Your inner book nerd will have a book nerd orgasm.”

After reading this series, I now feel like this:

Pray that I have a speedy recovery.

Happy reading, lovelies!

Up All Night Reading

I just finished reading Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I just can’t even put into words what I’m feeling. I really want to run into my office and grab Opposition and continue binge-reading until I’ve finished this series. But I also don’t want the series to end. Ever feel this way about a book series? You want to know what happens but at the same time you really don’t because you know that will be the end? This isn’t going to be a long post at all. I just wanted to share the fact that it’s 3:30AM and I just finished Origin and my feelings are all out of whack. I can’t wait to re-read this post when I actually wake up later today.

Obsidian, Onyx & Opal Quotes

Since I’m not doing reviews for these books (if you don’t know why, my last blog states the main reason), I decided to do a post with my favorite quotes from the infamous duo, Kat and Daemon. These are quotes/scenes that I marked while reading these amazing books. So let’s get started with BOOK ONE!

untitled

“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”

“Why are you such an ass?” The words came out before I could think twice.
“Everyone has to excel at something, right?”
“Well, you’re doing a great job.”

Personal Favorite —> “I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect.” His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. “The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It’s just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.”

“Will you show me what you look like? You don’t sparkle, do you?”

“The day my internet was hooked up was better than having a hot guy check out my butt and ask for my phone number.” This is true on SO many levels.

“If she was mine, I’d cherish every inch of her. And I wanted to. Now.”

“I was always able to lose myself in reading. Books were a necessary escape I always gladly jumped into headfirst.”

On to BOOK TWO!

“People who didn’t heart books didn’t understand.”

“I grabbed a bookmark off the coffee table and shoved it in the book. Dog-eared pages were Antichrist of book lovers everywhere.”

“I always liked you. From the moment you flipped me off.”

“If there is anything, there is us. You and me. No one else.”

“Oh holy alien babies everywhere!”

“I understood books. I did not understand boys – especially alien boys.”

“Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing.”

“That kind of love should’ve been able to beat sickness. That kind of love should’ve conquered anything.”

“I’m not going to do anything stupid. And even if what I plan is risky and insane, it’s a well-thought-out level of stupidity.”

Personal Favorite —> “It had insta-love, the bane of my existence. Girl sees boy and falls in love. Immediately. Soul mate, breath stealing, toes curling, love after one conversation. Boy pushes girl away for some paranormal reason or another. Girl still loves boy. Boy finally admits love.”

Lastly, BOOK THREE!

untitled

“I know you’re upset because you worry about me, but I’m not going to be the girl who sits at home and waits for the hero to wipe out the villains.”

“He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.”

“This isn’t a book, Kat.”
I yanked on my other boot. “No, really? Crap. I was hoping you skipped to the end and would tell me what happens. I actually love spoilers.”

“Um, no. He’d kill you.”
Blake laughed.
I frowned. “I’m being serious.”
“Oh.”

“Her death and her life was a mystery. I’d known her for six months, but I hadn’t known her at all.”

“You really shouldn’t trust a soul in this game. Not when everyone has something to gain or lose.”

“There is nothing you can say or do that will change that. So grieve what you had to do. Mourn it, but never, ever blame yourself for things that are beyond your control.”

“It sucked – sucked worse than people who pirated books, sucked more than waiting a year for the next book in a beloved series, and sucked more than a brutal cliffhanger ending.”

“He’s like a suicidal Energizer bunny.”

“He was such an asshole, and I loved him.”

“Folding my arms, I refused to back down. Andrew never liked me. Or puppies. Or bacon.”

DONE!

I swear, typing up all of these quotes makes me want to re-read the first three books, even though I JUST read them! I hope you enjoyed reading through some of the brilliantly written dialogue between the characters of the Lux series. If you haven’t read these books, hopefully these quotes will spark your interest. I will probably be doing another one of these when I finish the fourth and fifth book in the series. Ever get that feeling where you just don’t want to finish a series because you’re going to miss the characters so much? Totally what I’m feeling right now.
