Untouched Blog Tour - Quotable Quotes Feature: April 20-27

Welcome to my stop on the Untouched Blog Tour Multi-blog, Quotable Quotes event! 

Jus talks about quotes:  A great quote can be inspirational. It can make us laugh, or swoon. It can make us feel connected when we’re lonely. A quote is the perfect example of the power words can hold. They can come from anywhere. Movies, books, people… I thought today I’d share some of my favorites with you.

Let’s start with people. Some of my absolute favorites come from Lord Byron.

For truth is always strange; stranger than fiction – Simple and says it all. This describes my life perfectly. Example? My 60 something year old neighbor mowing the lawn at midnight wearing nothing but a red Speedo. Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up…

And what about movies? Everything from creepy to hilarious. Movie quotes stick with us.

I’ll be back…
– You know you think badass, unstoppable killing machine when you hear that.

I see dead people
– Tell me you didn’t get the chills when you saw Haley Joel Osment turn to Bruce Willis and confess his big secret?

I want my two dollars
! – I don’t care how old you are, if you don’t know this quote, a small part of me just died…

Of course I saved the best for last. The book quotes. Funny, swoontastic, and all around awesome! I’ve seen everything from t-shirts to tattoos honoring these puppies. A few weeks ago, I even saw a van that had Jacob’s face (Twilight) and I’m gonna fight for you, until your heart stops beating airbrushed across the driver’s side. On the passenger’s side, Edward’s face and Look after my heart – I’ve left it with you. Crazy, right?

Pick up your clothes. I am not your maid. How do I know this? A maid cannot kill you with a tube sock. I can
. – If you haven’t read Rob Thurman’s Cal Leandros series, you need to snap it up ASAP. There are so many awesome one liners, it will make your head spin.

At each stop there will be a teaser quote from TOXIC. It will be your job to figure out who said what. On the last day of the event, Jus will pop by each of the blogs and give the answers. 

Here is my stop's quote, you just have to guess who said:  “This is going to get us in trouble, isn’t it?” 

Was it: Ginger, Dez, Alex, Kale, or Kiernan.

There will be one (1) prize for each stop. One winner will receive a Denazen Swag Bag + an eBook copy of Untouched. Then Jus will take those winners and pick one (1) grand prize winner that will will receive a signed, print copy of Touch + a Touch Key Chain.  In the comments below, leave who you think this quote is from.  Jus will be stopping by each blog on 4/27/12 to tell who that quote is from and to pick a winner.  Remember there are 15 blog sites participating, so you have 15 chances to win (See other sites below).  Please note that the e-book giveaway is international, but the swag is US/Canada only.  Please note in comments if you are International.

Book Blurb:  Until he met Dez, Kale’s days were filled with violence and death. He was used as a weapon of destruction by the power hungry men of Denazen. He’s a Six. A person with an abnormal ability. Some people call them gifts, but not Kale. Kale’s touch means instant death.
But now there’s Dez, the girl he can touch, and they’re hunting down Sixes and warning them about Denazen. Kale is learning about the world outside captivity and trying to put his dark past behind him. But they underestimated how badly Denazen wanted him back.
When Dez sacrifices herself to save the new Six they’d rescued from falling into the corp’s hands, Kale is lost. Denazen has brought out its best to get the job done. Samsen, a nightmare from Kale’s past—the only person he’s ever truly feared—has come for them, and it soon becomes obvious he has his own twisted agenda.

Kale will need all his training to get Dez back and ensure they make it out, free—and alive. But will it be enough?
