That’s What HE Said Thursday #6

thats what he said thursday chapter break net

That’s What HE Said Thursday is a super-fun meme hosted by Julie and Rose over at Chapter Break.  Super easy, too.  It’s about sharing quotes from book boyfriends.  Doesn’t have to be swoon-worthy, as long as a book boyfriend said it.

“Personally, I will be racking up the student loans.  The good news is that once it’s in your head, they can’t come and take it back.  It’s not like the bank can repossess your brain.”  He feigned a worried look.  “At least, I don’t think they can….”

Ethan to Paige in The Princesses of Iowa by M. Molly Backes

Obviously, this isn’t swoon-worthy, but it did make me laugh out loud.  The quote is from the first scene in which we meet the book boyfriend, Ethan.  And I loved him from the very beginning.  He reminds me so much of my college friends.  And I do so love snark (when done nicely) and sarcasm.

      Yes, Rose, you’re thirty-something is showing. But I forgive you. I laughed at that line because I think a lot of us told ourselves that when we were young.
