    Gah!! No favorite quote because there are too many to choose from!! I think I’ve read all of your books in about 2 weeks (while working too!)!! And I’ve ordered my “attempted murder” tshirt and am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival. I would love to win a copy of all of your books and an advanced eARC too!! 🙂

      Entry #1 – though I’m letting you slide about the quote!! 🙂 I hope you love the T-shirt!!

    My favorite quote that immediately comes to mind is “I could never rule out my own inability to focus on things that didn’t interest me” from Cupcakes, Trinkets, and other Deadly Magic because it reminds me so much of myself. Gotta love Jade!

    Thank you for all that you do, Meghan!

      Entry #2 – I’m thinking of designing up a T-shirt around this quote. 😀

        I’m just wondering if I need to change it to present tense … And if that then wouldn’t be a direct quote from the book. “I never can underestimate my ability to … “

      • December 16, 2015 9:38 AM

        I would buy it past or present tense 😀

      • December 16, 2015 12:03 PM

        I think I’ll have Elizabeth do it as a direct quote in the New Year. Add in some of the chocolate cosmos and the Dowser series hashtag. I just want to wait until Amazon Merch gets everything sorted out on their end. They are still restricting sales. 🙁

    Anything about chocolate. Or about Kandy’s hair. Maybe when Kandy’s hair turns brown and totally freaks Jade out.

    I couldn’t pick just one! All I know for sure is, if a book makes me laugh out loud, and then cry, on the same page, it’s amazing! All your books do that for me! I’ve read all of them in a couple of months, and always pre-order the new ones! Amazing and thank you!

    There are so many great quotes to choose from. One of my favorites from I See Me is ” He didn’t leave. He saw my crazy and he didn’t leave.”

    Can’t wait to break out the Oreos and settle in on the 17th!

    “I didn’t know what I was looking for until I saw it. It wasn’t what I expected. It wasn’t one specific image. It wasn’t a clue. It wasn’t enlightenment. It wasn’t good versus evil.
    It was endurance.
    I had endured.
    I endured.
    I will endure.” Jade from Dowser 5
    I love this. Something for all of us to keep in mind. We all endure and will continue to do so until the final moments. We just have to keep mindful of the good and enjoy it as it comes.

  9. December 14, 2015 9:44 AM

    Can I have a couple of quotes?! There’s too many goodies lol 🙂

    From dowser #1-
    “If that’s not the kettle talking smack about the pot, I don’t know what is.”

    From dowser #5-
    “You know, if rabid koalas went around giving hugs”

    From dowser #4-
    “Im not attracted to grumpy older men. Yeah, I’d just keep telling myself that.”

  10. December 14, 2015 9:49 AM

    “Hey,” Kandy said. “Aren’t I supposed to get chocolate if you’re going to force girly talk on me?” – Treasures, Demons, and other Black Magic

    I love Kandy so much, and this quote still fits her so perfectly.

    These two captured my attention from the very beginning.

    “If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders – The Adept – was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you – a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled… except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.”

    “The customer looked familiar, like maybe he’d been in the bakery a few times before. The vampire, however, was new.”

    December 14, 2015 10:38 AM

    “Shower, please. You smell like bakery. ”
    “Some people like it. ”

    Because I, too, have to hope that my (pediatrics) odor is on some plain, appealing! 😉

  14. December 14, 2015 10:55 AM

    I had trouble narrowing it down to one 😱

    But……. It came from Dowser 1

    “If that’s not the kettle talking smack about the pot, I don’t know what is.”

    This made me sit next to hubster snickering my butt off lol and him giving me that ‘look’ that says she’s lost the plot AGAIN!

    And what’s this about IF wanted them signed 😨 of COURSE we do 😘

    Gah! I’m at work (shh) and don’t have time to find a quote. Rest assured, however, that I love the way your words work. They grab me and draw me in – and I can’t wait for the next installment. Looking forward to “I see me”!

    “You love me.” The fledgling guardian’s smile remained, but his tone turned serious.
    “You’d do anything for me.”
    “Yes, I would.”
    “As I would for you.”

    By far one of my favorite quotes between Jade and the fledgling dragon lol

    “I was always moving forward wasn’t I? Always forgiving, always resilient. Maybe it was time to stop. Maybe it was too much.”
    From Maps, Artifacts, and other Arcane Magic. I love this quote because even though she feels this way, Jade doesn’t stop. Ever. She is strong, yet so vulnerable.

  23. December 14, 2015 5:57 PM

    “It’s like you and Kett had babies,” from Dowser 3. Just a great way to describe something delicious & to take the mick out of your best friends.

    “Life is a gift,” he said. “And I’m no god.” “She is strong, so strong,” I whispered into his warm skin. “She was injured in service to the guardian nine.” “A service of utmost consequence,” Pulou said behind me. His tone was even, as if he was simply verifying information and not trying to influence the outcome. “She … I can still taste her magic,” I continued. “She’s still here. Please. I would do anything. I would trade my life for hers if I could. Please.” (Dowser 4)

    “The kiss was brutal-almost punishingly so. Wins away from the playful way he’d traded me in the bakery kitchen three months ago. As if he were punishing me for being gone so long and welcoming me home at the same time.” Dowser 3 (I ❤️ Desmond)

  26. December 14, 2015 8:57 PM

    Not fair ! To many to choose from!

    “I will endure.” I think it’s the best theme of the characters on your books!

    “Before I knew who I was – biologically I mean, because I sure as hell don’t know who I actually am yet -” Jade, Dowser 3

    I love this quote. Mostly because I relate. I feel like I’m having a midlife crisis, only I’m not old enough for that just yet!

    My favorite quote still comes from Dowser #2. It’s when Kandy say, “Don’t let blondness fool you, fledgling. The witch stabbed a ninehundred-pound grizzly in the ass today. She just keeps her claws better hidden and painted pink.” She describes Jade perfectly to Mory. I just love how bad ass Jade is with a girly edge.

  34. December 15, 2015 3:50 PM

    Something along the lines of: “She said watching me bake was like watching an adept witch work a spell. Flattery will get you treats from me every time.: (I think it was Kandy, but not sure…) from Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic

    From the Dowser series, it’s more than one but the last one is one of my faves from McGrowley to Jade.
    “Good kiss,” he said. I laughed. “Cool cat form.” “All the better to stalk you with.” Love it!!

    I don’t have just one! I love the series so much and cannot wait for book 6. Might just have to reread the entire series. Lol. Jade talks about chocolate A LOT, so I think Jade and I could be the best of friends! Plus, I bake, so she can show me all her secrets! I really am sorry for not having a quote. This is my first comment and I’m so excited to simply be talking to you! Lol.

    • December 16, 2015 5:25 PM

      Entry #37 – Kayla! I’m letting quotes slide because for some reason people are having issues with the requirement this time round, but I won’t next time. Just to be fair to everyone who has taken the time to dig one up. I hope you understand. Thanks for reading!!

      • Kayla Marshall permalink
        December 16, 2015 8:12 PM

        I totally understand! I apologize for no quote! To make up for it, I have one now!

        “This is my destiny?” I cried.
        “You will stay, Jade Godfrey,” Chi Wen said, his voice pulling me from the clutches of the vision. “Train. Learn your magic. You will walk among the humans once again. But not today.”
        I nodded, tears running down my face unchecked. What else could I do?

        I cried at the end of this book. The thought of Jade never seeing Kett or McGrowly again? Peral, her mother, Kandy? It broke my heart!

  39. December 16, 2015 6:10 AM

    I am totally cheating but I can’t help it… From I See You…
    Beau- “you smell like magic. Your magic…”
    Rochelle- “do I taste as good as I smell?”
    Dear lord- book two is better than book one and I totally didn’t think that was possible… To the rest you of— READ I SEE YOU!!! Immediately when it comes out! It’s flipping awesome!!!

  40. December 16, 2015 9:12 AM

    Yeah, all I had to do was get through a horde of demons, overcome Sienna’s defenses, and kill my sister. Easy as freaking pie. And I’d always made terrible pie.

    Just one of the quotes I like – this one because Jade can make a (bad) joke regardless of what else is going on or how bad it really is.

    AlI I had to do to be exactly where I’d been dreaming of being for the last three years was climb a couple of orange-carpeted steps up into the cockpit between the driver and passenger seats. From there, I could slide in behind the wheel and be off.

    I am really looking forward to “I see you” but have to wait until Christmas as I put it on my list. Have a wonderful holiday

    Apple. He’d had the bakery heat up apple juice for me. I shouldn’t read too much in to the action. There was no way he could possibly know what Apple meant to me, just because I ordered Apple pie last night. But still, my throat constricted, and when I tried to hold the emotions at bay, it flooded with a wave of heat through my face and neck. I gasped when the tightness moved to my chest. I couldn’t breathe. Oh, God. I think this was…happiness. Extreme, insane happiness. This didn’t happen in real life.

    Sorry to put so much in but this passage made me happy. That Rochellehad to wait 18 years to feel joy was so sad but it did happen…with more to come!

  46. December 16, 2015 6:57 PM

    Omg, my favorite quote is definitely “I could never rule out my own inability to focus on things that didn’t interest me” from Cupcakes, Trinkets, and other Deadly Magic because, but there are just so many that you’ve inspired me to start a list now!
