Book Quotes- The Fine Art Of Truth Or Dare by Melissa Jensen

Book Quotes is a feature we'll be doing once in a while to share some of our favourite book quotes with you all. If you've already read the book and have your own favourite quotes from it, feel free to share them with us!

My pick for our first Book Quotes feature is The Fine Art Of Truth Or Dare by Melissa Jensen
I'd read this book sometime back and it is a very sweet read! If you like short, simple and sweet yet totally sensible, just go for The Fine Art Of Truth Or Dare

Goodreads Summary: 

Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss in this charming romantic comedy

Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that's just fine by her. She's got her friends - the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She's got her art - and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it's hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they're dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl?

Here's a list of all the quotes that I highlighted while reading the book! 

  • To love someone so much that you don't care if he loves you back. 
  • I couldn't think of any parallel universe where wrapping myself around his knees to keep him in place would be construed as anything other than psychotic. 
  • An irrevocably broken heart is beautiful and poetic. 
  • Don't you know that the way people see you has absolutely nothing to do with the way you look?
  • It didn't escape my notice that, yet again, I was feeling relaxed around this boy. Yet again, it didn't make me especially happy. How many signs do I need that we are never, ever going to have... anything... before I get it?
  • No. Maybe. I don't know. That's the problem. I... can't trust what I think I know anymore. 
  • I figured he had some things to say that I didn't want to hear, and I tried to think if any way I could ask him just not to talk, please, without sounding sullen or slightly insane. 
  • Tomorrow comes. Tomorrow brings, tomorrow brings love, in the shape of things. 
  • What I really wanted desperately was to know that everything was okay between us. But here's the thing. If you can't ask that question straight out, if you have to wriggle and hint and hope the person will do it for you, you really shouldn't ask.
  • What I wanted, all I wanted, was for him to take those few more steps and fold me onto his coat like he'd done before. I wasn't thinking much beyond that. Maybe because I knew it wasn't going to happen. 
That's all I got and I hope you enjoy reading it!
