Quotes #5

These are just a few funny quotes from books that I have collected over time that make me smile or laugh when I’m having a bad day.

“The woman wears a floral print blouse with lots of leaves and pink flowers. Risa would like to attack her with a weed whacker” (Unwind by Neal Shusterman)

“His idea of traffic safety is going so fast for the cops to catch up” (Feed by Mira Grant)

“Maybe he’s got a nicotine crave on. That must really suck: being a zombie who can’t get a smoke” (Undead by Kirsty McKay)

“Delaying death is one of my favorite hobbies” (The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan)

“She’d also called me brave…unless she was talking to the catfish” (The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan)

“You fuck – you ate my cat!” (Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake)
