“I’ll be looking for you, Will, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they wont’ just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…”
― Lyra, His Dark Materials Trilogy: The Amber Spyglass, Philip Pullman

“And she looked back again at the foul and dismal shore, so bleak and blasted with disease and poison, and thought of her dear Pan waiting there alone, her heart’s companion, watching her disappear into the mist, and she fell into a storm of weeping. Her passionate sobs didn’t echo, because the mist muffled them, but all along the shore in innumerable ponds and shallows, in wretched broken tree stumps, the damaged creatures that lurked there heard her full-hearted cry and drew themselves a little closer to the ground, afraid of such passion.”

“His Dark Materials: The Amber Spyglass” – Philip Pullman

Favourite young adult book

I have a few of these as i have read many great ones! Should i be boring and go with the obvious? Yeah, i’m afraid it’s a close tie between the Harry Potter series and His Dark Materials trilogy! Because i’ve read the former more times though, i’m choosing Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows as my favourite! (Does it count as YA though? Not sure)
