As you can see you can pick anything for Book Quote’s. I went with Witty and Funny Things Characters Have Said; because I just love some of these things characters have said and each time I read them again I laugh or smile.


One of my favarotie series is Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews.  Their are a lot of fun and witty quotes.  One I really love is featured in Magic Bites its the first time Kate meets the Beast Lord.

Diplomacy was never my strong suit and my patience had run dry. I crouched and called out, “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty.”
Two golden eyes ignited at the opposite wall. A shape stirred within the darkness and rose, carrying the eyes up and up and up until they towered above me. A single enormous paw moved into the moonlight, disturbing the dust on the filthy floor. Wicked claws shot forth and withdrew. A massive shoulder followed, its gray fur marked by faint smoky stripes.

“What kind of a woman greets the Beast Lord with ‘here, kitty, kitty’?”Magic Bites - 19%

Another favorite series I love to re-visit is Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews. This quote from the first book Clean Sweep makes me smile.

“I’ve never understood why some guys strip when drunk.” Sean grinned.
“It’s not funny. I’ve got a naked drunk vampire running around in m orchard.”
Arland zigzagged back and forth among the trees.
Sean pressed his lips together, his expression strained.
“It’s not funny!”
Sean leaned against the door and laughed.
