Guess This Quote!!!
There was one...

There was one of these on here a while ago, but it sorta died and I liked it so... why not try again?

It's pretty self explanitory. Someone says a quote from a book, and we have to guess which book it's from. Whoever guesses it gets to post the next quote. Here goes!

“They crawled toward each other, and then with some unspoken understanding, both pushed off the floor with their hands and stood. Four parents and many bemused party guests watched as the two babies took their very first steps, crashed into each other, and fell to the floor laughing.”

Ok I'll try.

Its from like a fantasy adventure book, I think that's what genre it is. And it's about Indian mythology. Is this helping?

OMGGGGG YESSSSS I LOVE THAT QUOTE!!! It’s from the Grisha Trilogy, I believe the second book, Siege and Storm.

Next quote;

”I’ll tell you a secret... The really bad monsters never look like monsters.”

@Stardust, I know WHO said that— the love of my life Nikolai Lantsov, but I haven't read TGT in ages so I'm not sure which book >:(

Yes, it is Nikolai Lantsov, and I believe it was from Seige and Storm (although they refrenced it in King of Scars aaaaaaa).

@Kestrel, that's from Crooked Kingdom! (I'm pretty sure.) I LOVE that quote!

@Stardust, YESSS King of Scars is so good. I think it's one of my favorite Grishaverse books so far. I'm not done with it though, so no spoilers!!

Okay, new quote: "I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other."

@Abigail, you're lucky to have the luxury of reading slowly, my best friend finished in less than a week after it came out and demanded I finish in the next week once Amazon finally delivered it (I forgot to preorder it), but I love it too! I think I still like the 6oC duology best, mostly because, without too much spoilers, I thought KoS recycled old plot points and conflicts a bit too much for my taste.

And I agree that it's from Crooked Kingdom. I also love that line, and entire scene (Kaz was giving me goosebumps oh my Saints). I just finished the rereading the duology through the audiobooks, which I highly reccomend, btw. I have no idea about Abi's quote though.
