Thursday Quotables {2}

Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies
It's all about sharing a quote, passage, or line from a book that your have read recently or are reading currently. The quote can be anything because it's obviously worthy, if you feel like it's worth mentioning.

This week's quote(s) is coming from: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


Six of Crows is the first novel to start off Leigh Bardugo's next series. It takes place in the same world as her Grisha trilogy. This is actually the first book I have picked up that was written by Leigh. However with the way this novel is effecting me, it most certainly won't be the last. 
One of my favorite things about this book are the witty comments between the six main characters. I have chosen three little teasers to share with you. I hope you enjoy!

Qoute 1 can be found on page 97
" Just trust me, Nina."
"I wouldn't trust you to tie my shoes without stealing the laces, Kaz."

This is around the first time in the book that you are exposed to Nina as a character. She was obviously a great addition to the characters. I was equally as happy to discover she also had some quirky comments to make.

Quote 2 can be found on page 109
"You were early Jesper," Kaz said as he nudged Matthias toward the boat.
"I was on time."
"For you, that's early. Next time you plan to impress me give me some warning."
"The animals are out, I found you a boat. This is when a thank-you would be in order."
This is just one of the prime examples of the witty bickering that takes place between Kaz & Jesper. I think I also really liked this quote because it's around this point in the novel where I realized that Kaz is never going to go out of his way to tell his colleges that they had done something right. Also how funny Jesper is.

Quote 3 can be found on page 126
Kaz leaned back. "What's the easiest way to steal a man's wallet?"
"Knife to the throat?" asked Inej.
"Gun to the back?" asked Jesper.
"Poison in his cup?" suggested Nina.
"You're all horrible," said Matthias. 
Kaz rolled his eyes. "The easiest way to steal a man's wallet is to tell him you're going to steal his watch. You take his attention amd direct it where you want it to go...."
I would have to say that hands down, this, was my favourite quote. I enjoyed reading all of the characters answers. It was a curious question to get the responses too. I also really enjoyed this scene because I got to see all the ways the different characters think and what goes through their minds since all the answers were honest.
