What's wrong?" asked Seth, seeing my frown.

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000045547

Things on the essential list: vodka, Nine Inch Nails, a steady supply of mortal men, and an all-purpose bitchy attitude. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000045555
Lucky Charms?" I asked.
"Magically delicious," he explained. "Requisite for any sort of building project."

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000045575

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000045577

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000055466
It's kind of hard to outlive your past -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000055716

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000061832
Most do," she agreed. "Me? My principles are about love and doing it because there's meaning and commitment. A piece of paper doesn't always signal that. If there's any sin involved, it's doing it in a . . . I don't know. Cheap way. With people you don't care about. When it's meaningless. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000061851
Why? It doesn't hurt you or anything. I told you I won't bother you if you don't want me to. And if you do, well, I'm all about that. So what's it matter if I just love you from afar?" I didn't entirely know. "Because . . . because you can't! -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000073032
But I realized the place didn't matter. The person did. With someone you loved, you could be anywhere, and it would be incredible. Being in the most luxurious bed in the world wouldn't matter if you were with someone you didn't love. - Rose Hathaway -- Richelle Mead

I grow and I shrink. I run and I crawl.

Seek my decay to safeguard your health. -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000078884
It's Adrian Ivashkov logic. Don't try to understand it. Just roll with it. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000079386
You're not as much of a lost cause as she was. I mean, with her, I had to overcome her deep, epic love with a Russian warlord. You and I just have to overcome hundreds of years' worth of deeply ingrained prejudice and taboo between our two races. Easy. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000079481
I'm guessing whatever 'ways' you have in mind aren't Jill-appropriate either."
"Put your books away and I'll show you. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000081361

- Abe Mazure -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000081814
And besides . . . I don't want to leave you. Er, you guys."

I grinned back. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000083663
I didn't care at this point and busied myself texting a message to Sydney on the Love Phone, letting her know that my art was a paltry thing compared to the brilliance of her beauty. She texted back: This is me rolling my eyes. To which I replied: I love you too. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000085392
You know what we need?"

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000085443
Finn crossed his arms and glared at Volusian. It was kind of a bold move, considering Finn looked like a cartoon character and Volusian looked like he ate the souls of small children. For all I knew, he probably did. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000085707
He shrugged. "The same as any other. It's a way to make people feel better about themselves. Everyone likes feeling special. Being part of an elite group is a way to do that."
"But you weren't part of it?"
"No need. I already know I'm special. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000089334
Well there you go. Even a psychopath recognized your worth enough to want to kill someone else first.
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000092704
You remember our talk about purpose and meaning?" he asked me, the smile disappearing. "Well, I think this might be mine. I think this is what I was meant to do, Georgina. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000093235
You have an interesting set of morals," he observed. "Breaking out of jail is okay. But steal a car, and you sound totally outraged. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000094168

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000094329
Anger could flip to passion in a heartbeat. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000095167
there's a big difference between death threats and love letters--even if the person writing the death threats still claims to actually love you. Of course, considering I once tried to kill someone I loved, maybe I had no right to judge. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000096182

He sighed. "You don't think I've tried? How can anyone compare? You might not believe this, but there is no one like Ageline at this school. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000097721
We need to be together."
"Why?" I asked softly. The word was carried away on the wind, but he heard.
"Because I want you."
I gave him a sad smile, wondering if we'd meet again in the land of the dead. "Wrong answer," I told him.
I let go -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000100707
So many details came into focus. The shape of his lips, the line of his neck. "I'm not dangerous," I breathed.
He brought his face toward mine. "You are to me."
And somehow, against all reason, we were kissing. I closed my eyes, and the world around me faded. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000100845
You have to protect her. The more she uses it, the worse it'll get. Stop her, Rose. Stop her before they notice, before they notice and take her away too. Get her out of here." [ ... ]
"Don't let her use the power! ... Save her. Save her from herself! -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000100929

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000101866
Something clenched in my chest, and for a moment, the whole world narrowed down to the green of his eyes. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000102809
With great effort, I pushed my questions to the side for the time being. We were still fugitives, still undoubtedly pursued. Sydney's car was a brand new Honda CR-V with Louisiana plates and rental sticker.
"What the hell? Is this daring escape sponsored by Honda?"

You're new here, aren't you?" Rolan asked.
"Rose is visiting. She's a friend of the family." Viktoria said.

"It's part of the job description," I said dryly. -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000118955
But when I touch you, your aura ... it smolders. The colors deepen, it burns more intensely, the purple increases. Why? Why, Sydney?" He used that hand to pull me closer. "Why do you react that way if I don't mean anything to you?" There was a desperation in his voice, and it was legitimate. -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000125011
I used to think you were weak and just didn't fight back ... but now, honestly, I think you're actually pretty tough. It takes a hell of a lot of strength to not complain and lash out. -- Richelle Mead

Tawny," I barked. My voice held the authority of a drill sergeant. She jumped. "I am NOT making out with you until the end of time. You want to do this, then you've got to work for it. Now, TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES."

Why the hell would I bring you?" she exclaimed. All her anger turned at his presumption. It was a sign of her agitation that she'd sworn.

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000128852

Then, I heard the pounding again - and worse, my whole bed shook violently. Someone was kicking it. Opening my eyes again, I turned and found myself staring into Yeva's shrewd dark eyes.

The Alchemists' beliefs are my beliefs," I say quickly.
She arched an eyebrow. "Are they? I would hope your beliefs would be your beliefs."

She also apparently had a bona fide dungeon in her house. At least that's what Inez told me when we arrived. Maude, overhearing as she passed by, rolled her eyes. It's not a dungeon, Inez. It's a wine cellar. -- Richelle Mead

And what are your sins?" the voice demanded. "Confess what you've done." That was harder, but I still managed the words. If it got me closer to Adrian and freedom, I could say anything. I took a deep breath and said: "I fell in love with a vampire. -- Richelle Mead

I'd never felt so helpless - so hopeless - in my life as I did there.

I never saw it coming," I said bleakly. "I thought I was so smart. And each time I talked to her, I dismissed her as some dumb, scattered girl. Meanwhile, she was laughing and countering my moves every step of the way. It's humbling. I don't meet many people like that. -- Richelle Mead

Sonya gave him a sly smile. "And here I thought you had a soft spot for reckless young girls."

I'd mentioned this odd wardrobe choice to Adrian a couple of weeks ago:
"Isn't Dimitri hot?"
Adrian's response hadn't been entirely unexpected:
"Well, yeah, according to most women, at least. -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000202896

Trey scoffed. "Between you and me, Brayden's probably the last guy in the world you have to worry about. I think he's as clueless as you are. If I didn't care about your virtue so much, I'd actually probably give him a lecture on 'how' to try something." -Trey, pg. 70 -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000210630
Damn it," I muttered.
"What?" asked Adrian.
"I hate when you're the sane one. That's my job."

You can't," I murmured, swallowing the tears back with great effort. "You can't keep saving me, can't keep trying to. It's too late."

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000218754
What?" I asked uneasily. "Why are you looking at me like that?"
He shook his head, the smile rueful now. "Because sometimes, a person can get so caught up in the details that they miss the whole. It's not just the dress or the hair. It's YOU. You're beautiful. So beautiful, it hurts me. -- Richelle Mead

I could see her toughening up, working hard to put all those emotions away because she thought that's what it meant to

Wow," said Adrian. He sat down on the bed and tested its bounciness, giving it a nod of approval. "This is amazing. What do you think, buttercup?"

Even now, despite Angeline's watchfulness, she'd occasionally oscillate between random topics, like how shepherd's pie wasn't a pie at all and why it was pointless for her to take class in typing when technology would eventually develop robot companions to do it for us. -- Richelle Mead

With a start, I realized I'd begun to frown. I tried to relax my face. Unbidden, Adrian's words had come back to me, that the next time I was in bed with Dimitri, I should think about others who weren't so lucky.

Well, let's see. Guardians spend all their time watching out for

Nah, you always look good. As for me ... well, it's hard to explain. The auras are getting to me. There's so much sorrow around here. You can't even begin to understand. It radiates from everyone on a spiritual level. It's overwhelming. It makes your dark aura downright cheerful. -- Richelle Mead

I saw something in his pretty green eyes that I had never seen before: Anger. They were like emerald fire -- Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000373915
Emerald green eyes studied us from a face that could have been sculpted by one of the classical artists I so admired. Shocked, I dismissed the comparison as soon as it popped into my head. This was a vampire, after all. It was ridiculous to admire him the way I would some hot human guy. -- Richelle Mead

Lissa knelt down, compassion on her face. I wasn't surprised, since she'd always had a thing for animals. She'd lectured me for days after I'd instigated the infamous hamster-and-hermit-crab fight.

You've given some pretty convincing arguments, but you're still a long way from winning me over."

His lips moved toward mine. "I was hoping you'd say that. -- Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead Quotes : pic 000587900
