The lovely ladies over at Chapter Break have started a new meme on Thursdays!  That’s What He Said is simple: Just pick a favorite quote from one of your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind these are direct quotes from dialogue in a book!

Today’s another one of my favorite quirky boys: Park from the amazing Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.  If you guys haven’t picked this book up, you are TRULY missing out on greatness.

“The first time he’d held her hand, it felt so good that it crowded out all the bad things. It felt better than anything had ever hurt.”
― Rainbow RowellEleanor & Park

“Holding Eleanor’s hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive.”
― Rainbow RowellEleanor & Park

“I want everyone to meet you. You’re my favorite person of all time.”
― Rainbow RowellEleanor & Park

And now, like every week I do this, I am compulsively wanting to reread this book.

Until we meet again,
