Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. I want to start participating in some more weekly memes and I thought that this one would be a great one to get into!
Half Wild (Half Bad #2)
Author: Sally Green
Publisher: Viking Juvenlie
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Witches
Release Date: March 24th 2015
Page Count: 400
Goodreads Synopsis: “You will have a powerful Gift, but it’s how you use it that will show you to be good or bad.” In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, seventeen-year-old Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most powerful and violent witch. Nathan is hunted from all sides: nowhere is safe and no one can be trusted. Now, Nathan has come into his own unique magical Gift, and he’s on the run–but the Hunters are close behind, and they will stop at nothing until they have captured Nathan and destroyed his father.
” I know the trees here so well that I can close my eyes and see each one but I try not to close my eyes so much—-it’s easier to stay positive with your eyes open. “

” Van looks at him. ‘Gabriel, what would you do if Nathan was held by Mercury? If you had to cut Pilot to find him and try to rescue him?’ Gabriel doesn’t reply. He stares at Van and then turns away. She says quietly and slowly, ‘I think you’d skin her alive.’ He turns back to look at me and I see the gold glints tumble slowly in his eyes as he says, ‘Ten times over.’ “
I’m really enjoying this series so far! I have about 100 pages to go before I’m finished with Half Wild and then I don’t know what I’m going to do until Half Lost comes out!

Great quoets! Especially the first one, it’s so true “it’s easier to stay positive with your eyes open”.

While I’m a disgruntled non-YA lover, I actually like the idea of books about witches. I’m over the vampires and werewolves and dystopias, but witches never seem to bother me. I think I just like the mystical element.
