The Mars Room: A Novel | Rachel Kushner

"Sometimes what other people want is wantable, briefly, before dissolving in the face of your own wants."

The Mars Room: A Novel | Rachel Kushner

"A man could say every day that he wanted to change his life, was going to change it, and every day the lament became merely a part of the life he was already living, so that the desire for change was in fact a kind of stasis that allowed the unchanged life to continue, because at least the man knew to disapprove of it, which reassured him not all was lost."

"I asked her if there would be monkeys. I thought for some reason that all islands had monkeys."

“I like short poems with weird rhyme schemes, because that‘s what life is like.”
“That‘s what life is like?” I was trying to get his meaning.
“Yeah. It rhymes, but not in the way you expect.”

“It‘s not about hacking computers anymore; it‘s about hacking human souls.”

“He‘s in that vast boy middle,” she said. “Like, good-looking enough that I‘m willing to be won over. The whole problem with boys is that ninety-nine percent of them are, like, okay. If you could dress and hygiene them properly, and make them stand up straight and listen to you and not be dumbasses, they‘d be totally acceptable.”

I scoop the soil over the bird, smoothing it flat before standing. "I hope someone is this kind to us when it's over."

"Ah, det klassiska tål-du-inte-skämt-argumentet", konstaterade hon torrt. "Använt i århundraden för att förminska folk. Så himla konstigt argument dessutom, för om det inte är roligt är det väl inte precis ett skämt?"

Allt ska brinna | Sofia Nordin

”Jag sa att det var bättre att vara bara lagom bråkig, för då är det fler som lyssnar.

När en gör något nytt är det svårare att mobbas. En vet inte än vilka mobbningsregler som gäller.”

Hinsides väktare | Karin Alvtegen, Albin Alvtegen

”- Är du Jamak? frågade han storögt.
- Ja, men folk använder inte det namnet längre. Alla här kallar mig Tolvfinger. Jag vet inte varför.
- Kanske för att du har tolv fingrar? föreslog Lionora artigt.
- Jag har även två ben, men ingen kallar mig för Tvåben, sa Jamak nedslaget.”

Försmådd | Hans Gunnarsson

"Jag beställde en pizza, men inte den jag brukade ta. Jag tog den Rudi hade ätit: Napolitana. Med sardeller, lök och oliver. Jag var ingen stor vän av sardeller, men jag petade i mig varenda en. Som ett slags hommage till Rudi. Det var det minsta jag kunde göra, tyckte jag."

Release | Patrick Ness

”Then Enzo was pulling away. Maybe for the last time ever. And if Adam had mostly made his peace with this, “mostly” was as close to “not at all” as any hand grenade.”

"It just doesn't make sense," Elizabeth insisted. "Are we supposed to believe that civilization has just come to an end?"
"Well," Clark offered, "it was always a little fragile, wouldn't you say?"

"Miles's mind was full of poetic thoughts. Every cloud had a silver lining, except there was probably a more interesting and meaningful way to say that, and death wasn't really a cloud."

"There's only silence when it happens. It isn't loud or struggled against or violent or anything at all. She just falls quiet, a certain type of quiet you know is endless as soon as you hear it, a quiet that muffles everything around it, turning off the volume of the world."
