Welcome to my third international blog hop. This time I join Love is in The Air Blog Hop, hosted by lovely ladies at Under The Covers books review site. I love this site, and had know the blogger (Annie, Fran, Suz and Angela) from Goodreads. This is the second time I join their blog hop, so thanks for the opportunity! :D.
Love is in The Air blog hop is event to celebrate Valentine Day. You know that Februari is month of love, even for me everyday is about love, lol! Talk about love, of course we talk about romance, one of my favorite genres. The UTC Ladies ask me, for this event, to include something that connected to Valentine's Day (or romance in particular). Hmm, I still think what topic to write. Favorite books? Favorite romance writers? Favorite couples? Interview? Choices, choices. But then, I decide to share some romantic quote from books I love :)
I love collect quotes. If I go to Goodreads and write the review after I finish reading, I usually give quotes I like. There's quote about life, humor, sarcasm, and especially about love. And this is some romantic quote or quote about love that become my favorite :
“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened.”
(Zsadist - Lover Awakened by J.R.Ward)
This is, by far, is the romantic quote I had ever read. And the reason why in that time, I really love Black Dagger Brotherhood.
“If you run from me, I will chase you, and I'll find you....”
(Bones - Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost)
If the hero said that to you, are you will not swoon? ;)
“When you first fall in love, it's supposed to be awful. Awful, uncertain, scary, wonderful, confusing, all at once. That's how you know it's real. You have to care deeply. Passionately. That hurts.”
(Impossible by Nancy Werlin)
That's my feeling exactly when I first fall in love with my boyfriend (and will be my husband next June ^_^) and still does 'til now. I guess, love can make us insecure, but strong at the same time.
“Do you remember the first time we made love?" He touched his lips to hers as he said it. "We rode up in the elevator like this and couldn't keep our hands off each other, couldn't get to each other quick enough. I was mad for you. I wanted you more than I wanted to keep breathing. I still do." He deepened the kiss as the elevator doors opened. "It's never going to change.”
(Roarke - Big Jack by J.D.Robb)
Ok, Roarke will always be my number one favorite hero in the romancelandia *cough2*. He, of course, has so many swoon-worthy quotes, but I really love this one. Its show that his feeling toward Eve, never gonna change even after they had married for 2 years. Eve Dallas and Roarke, its what couple in romantic books should be :)
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”
(Professor Albus Dumbledore - Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows by J.K.Rowling)
A wise words from Professor Dumbledore about love :)
And the last...
"He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”
I guess, that's sum it all ^_^.
