Thursday Quotables: Just Like the Movies


Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

Just Like the Movies

Just Like The Movies by Kelly Fiore
(Released July 22, 2014)

Mom and Dad lack that chip in their brains that tells them certain behavior isn’t normal for adults. They have water-balloon fights. They order kids’ meal at restaurants. All the high scores on the Wii are theirs. On more than one occasion I’ve caught them half-dressed, making out on the couch.

So. Gross.

My review will be along a little later on today; meanwhile, this description of parental behavior worthy of massive amounts of eye-rolling really struck my funny bone when I read it.

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

If you’d like to participate in Thursday Quotables, it’s really simple:

  • Write a Thursday Quotables post on your blog. Try to pick something from whatever you’re reading now. And please be sure to include a link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your post (, if you’d be so kind!
  • Leave your link in the comments — or, if you have a quote to share but not a blog post, you can leave your quote in the comments too!

  1. That’s really fantastic. I think we have all thought that when we were teenagers, and now that we are ‘adults’ we still think we are teenagers. And you know what? Sometimes letting out our child-side inside us is just plain fun, and it would be a shame not to. Teenager will know once they’ll be ‘adult’ 😉

    This is my quote for today. I know, another strange thing…
