This week's quote is...
'Fine. Go talk to him, before he comes inside and I have to pretend I'm okay with that.'
'You don't like him?'
My father sighed. 'After everything he's done for you, how could I not like him? But I see the way he looks at you. The way you look at each other.'
I smiled, as a car door closed outside. 'What are you, ancient? Don't you remember being my age?'
'I'm one hundred thirty-two, and I remember all too well. That's why I'm worried.'
This week quote is from page 277 of My Soul to Take, book one in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I really enjoyed this book, I finished yesterday and will have a review up soon. Kaylee's father has been absent from the book until the very end (she lives with her aunt, uncle and cousin), that is why I find this quote so funny. He is back for all of three hours and already he is having a awkward dad-daughter boy talk. Not the talk, but one slightly less awkward. I love his last line - his admittance of the real reason he is skeptical. None of this, "You're my daughter and no boy will ever be good enough for you. Blah blah blah." He goes flat out and says what he thinks, and I couldn't help but laugh a little.
