VA is definatelly #1. Eclipse is the best Twilight book, BD my least favorite (possibly because when I first read it, it was like 3am). Spirit Bound is my favorite book of ALL TIME, but it's so different from Shadow Kiss and Blood Promise that they're hard to compare. The first book is my least favorite. But because RM wrote it, it get's leeway.
Ok, I'm finally starting to write out my favorite quotes!
"Most fathers don't threaten to disembowel their daughters' boyfriends"
"That's not true. And anyway, that's not what I actually said. It was much worse."
"Sometimes it's like you don't even care about me as a person. It's like you're just using me for shock value."
"It's both, little dhampir. I care about you, and I'm using you for shock value."
"Honestly, darling. Do you even look in a mirror before you walk out the door? Your hair's a mess."
"Are you kidding? I spent hours in front of a mirror to make it look this way."
"True. I'd really like to know how he keeps his two mistresses a secret from his wife."
"I don't know. This college would probably have the same problem the last one did."
"It's okay. I don't really need a job or extra money. After Rose and I get married, the kids and I'll just live off of her guardian paycheck."
"Her Royal Majesty Queen Tatiana is here."
"But Rose? While I'm fine with you two dating and being happy, please try not to break his heart too much when the time comes."
pg 79"And by girl stuff, I meant breaking and entering."
pg 80"It occurred to me that I was standing face-to-face with the hero of a love story nearly as dramatic as my own."
"Oh my. This may be the best meal I've ever had."
"Put your teeth anywhere near me and it'll be your last meal."
"Four thirty? Good God. Are we getting the senior citizen special?"
"Did you know that Victor Dashkov is sitting on your bed?"
"Yeah. It was kind of a shock to us too."
"No. You cannot. It's like nothing you can imagine. Nothing. Right now . . . right now . . . you have the world. A universe of senses beyond those of others, an understanding of another person that no one can have. To lose that . . . to have it ripped away . . . it would make you wish for death."
"I told you. I told you I'd find you."
"Yeah. I got the memos."
"Roza...Why? Why did you have to be so difficult? We could have spent eternity together...""I felt my heart breaking all over again. Why? Why had this happened to us? Why was the universe so cruel?"
"Sorry. My eternity doesn't involve being part of the undead mafia."
"I know. Eternity will be lonely without you."
"I love him."
"Dimitri...he's more than my instructor..."
"He was more than your instructor. You loved him."
"Don't you dare talk about them like that, or I'll smash that wineglass in your face."
"You have no idea. She's had kind of a bad day."
"You should dress her better, you know."
"I'm not interested in putting clothes on her."
"Rose, nothing in this world could make me hate you."
"Not even bringing my ex-boyfriend back from the dead?"
"Yeah, I'll be honest. If Belikov were walking around right now, alive like he used to be? There would be some problems. I don't want to think what would happen with us if...well, it's not worth wasting time on. He's not here."
"I still...I still want us to work. I would still try, even if he were back. I just have a hard time letting someone I care about go."
"I know. You did want you did out of love. I can't be mad at you over that. It was stupid, but that's how love is. Do you have any idea what I'd do for you? To keep you safe?"
"Be sorry that you lied. Don't be sorry you loved him. That's part of you, part you have to let go, yeah, but still something that's made you who you are."
"Rose, I can think of many words to describe you, sexy and hot being at the top of the list. You know what's not on the list? Sane."
pg 224-225"Clearly, he was underestimating my ability to consume food."
"I'd rather you two stay alive. At least for a little while longer."
"Because I need you to be bait for Rose."
"I just know that as long as he's still alive--or, well, kind of alive--then you're in danger. And I can't stand that. I can't stand knowing that your life is in the balance. And it is, Rose. You'll never be safe until he's gone. I want you safe. I need you to be safe. I can't...I can't have anything happen to you."
"A nightmare. My worst nightmare ever."
"You're beautiful in battle. Like an avenging angel come to deliver the justice of heaven."
"Funny. That is kind of why I'm here."
"Angels fall, Rose."
"You can't, Rose. Haven't you figured that out by now? Haven't you seen it? You can't defeat me. You can't kill me. Even if you could, you can't bring yourself to do it. You'll hesitate. Again.""No, I wouldn't. That's what he didn't realize. He'd made a mistake bringing Lissa here. She increased the stakes--no pun intended--on everything. She was here. She was real. Her life was on the line, and for that...for that, I wouldn't hesitate."
pg 280-284"Not a miracle. A fairy tale."
"Rose, you can't go. It's not just that Dimitri didn't ask to see you. He asked specifically not to see you."
..."She'd done a lot to save him, true, but I was the one who'd traveled around the globe for him. I was the one who had continually risked my life for him. Most importantly, I was the one who loved him. How could he turn his back on that?"
pg 307, 316-317
And that's only like half. Not kidding.
