Adrian slowly sat up, eyes wide. "Sage," he said. "What are you wearing?"

I sighed and stared down at the dress. "I know. It's red. Don't start.
I'm tired of hearing about it."
"Funny," he said. "I don't think I could ever get tired of looking at it."
Those words drew me up short, and a rush of heat went through me. (235)

Because you asked:
I did it because he wasn't fair to you. Because you deserve credit for what you've done. Because he needs to realize you aren't the person he's always thought you were. He needs to see you for who you really are, not for all the ideas and preconceptions he's built up around you." The power in Adrian's gaze was so strong that I kept talking. I was nervous about meeting that stare in silence. Also, part of me was afraid that if I pondered my own words too hard, I'd discover they were just as much about my own father and me as Adrian and his. "It should have been enough for you to tell him who you are - show him who you are - but he wouldn't listen..." (244)
"You aren't going to go crazy," I said firmly. "You're stronger than you think. The next time you feel that way, find something to focus on, to remind you of who are."
"Like what? Got some magic object in mind?"
"Doesn't have to be magic," I said. I racked my brain. "Here." I unfastened the golden cross necklace. "This has always been good for me. Maybe it'll help you." I set it in his hand, but he caught hold of mine before I could pull back. (245)
"Why would you do that? Why would you act like you didn't know how to drive?"
"Isn't it obvious, Sage? No, of course it isn't. I did it so I'd have a reason to be around you - one I knew you couldn't refuse. (413)
"You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine." (415)
The Golden Lily
by Richelle Mead
The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series...

Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

You are... so mean.

Carina said...

Okay, I read all quotes now and I've come to the conclusion that you're even meaner than I thought before.





Just joking - you just made it sooooo hard to wait for THE GOLDEN LILY's
release. I mean, these quotes have live-Adrian-awesomeness in them! And
while I've never expected him to be anything but awesome, knowing that
there are even longer scenes containing these quotes drives me crazy! :D



The good thing? It's 10.43pm in Germany and I'll be going to bed now. I'm definitely going to have sweet, sweet dreams.



Thanks for sharing! :D

He pretended to not know how to drive and why do I find it one of the most romantic gestures I've read about, awwww and I haven't even read this book yet. My feelings are very emotional at the moment, haha.

I told myself I was going to hold off reading The Golden Lily because it'll have a bigger cliffy than Bloodlines and I don't wanna die in the suspense I felt when I finished the first book... but not the quotes...

I was hyperventilating on how excited I am. Damn you, you will end me and my resolve to NOT read the book right away...
OMG is it good, Sydrian <3 <3 <3
