Welcome to Quote-Tastic, hosted by Anna at Herding Cats & Burning Soup! She started this feature a bit ago so we could all share our favorite quotes from books. I've been having a blast with it!
Generally, I've been featuring quotes from books I've reviewed recently. This week I'm going to reach back in my archive to The Last Girl by Kitty Thomas. This book had such a profound effect on me, it's stayed on my mind since I first read it in May 2012. So yep, it's been just over a year. I still talk about this book to everyone, it's definitely an all time favorite for me.
For those of you not familiar with the story, Christian is a centuries old vampire, and he's quite dangerous, which proves to be a problem for Juliette when she becomes the object of his attention and he decides to take her for his own. I had two quotes I was debating with, and this is the one I've picked:
I am beginning to become more genuinely afraid of him. He seems to have shut off whatever power allows him to eavesdrop on my mind because he isn’t watching me in the same shrewd way or reacting to my thoughts. I assume he can turn this power on and off at will, otherwise it’s more of a curse than a gift. He’s walking circles around me, studying me. I shiver as his eyes caress my skin so intimately. I don’t feel like a virgin right now. I feel like what he just called me. A slut.
His tone is sort of absent, as if he’s lost in me, cataloging all my parts, making arcane lists in his mind.
“Are you going to hurt me?” I hold my breath. There is this stupid part of me that believes he won’t because he hasn’t in all this time even though he must have had opportunities. And he didn’t that night.

So what do you think? You like it? If you like vampires and stories of captivity, then this book should do well for you. It's not for everyone - it definitely deals with some strong subjects, and it doesn't hold back. But as for me, I loved it.
