That’s What HE Said Thursday #9

thats what he said thursday chapter break net

That’s What HE Said Thursday is the splendid meme hosted by the fabulous ladies over at Chapter Break.  It’s all about sharing our favorite book boyfriends’ words, whether swoon or cringe worthy.

He’s not meeting my eyes anymore.  “We’re young,” he says.  “We’ve got lots of time to fall in love.”

Tucker to Clara in Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I’ve got this thing now for book boyfriends who put what’s truly important before their feelings and/or hormones.  Claire has a larger purpose in her life, and Tucker thinks he’s keeping it from her.  So he is willing to put their relationship on hold, whether temporarily or permanently.  He loves her more than he wants to be with her.  It’s pretty incredible.

      This was my second attempt to read it. The first time I quit about a quarter of the way through. For some reason this time it held my attention.

      I tried commenting on your post but your blog doesn’t seem to like me. 🙁

  1. Aaww, what a great quote! I can’t remember the last time I read something by Cynthia Hand. I think I’ll hold-off on this one though to see if you succeed in finishing it this second time around, and what your final thoughts are.

      I just posted a review today. I think whether you’d like it would depend on your mood. It’s YA though, so it may not be your style.

    I read this a while back so I don’t remember much but I did remember liking Tucker.
    P.S. – your comments always ask to be moderated. You might have been caught up in whatever issue I had where I was going to spam.
