Well Said: Chauvinistic


"And that insulting, chauvinistic order he'd give her to say on the school grounds? What was this, the nineteenth century? It crossed her mind that maybe Daniel had spoken to her like that centuries ago, but - like Jane Eyre and Elizabeth Bennet - Luce was certain no former self of hers would ever have been cool with that. And she certainly wasn't now." ~ Torment by Lauren Kate
I love this passage. It really sets the defiance that permeates this story.

  5. New Follower here!

    OMG, I could NOT STAND Daniel in this book! He was the biggest chauvinistic, bossy jerk ever! Haha-- well, I hope you are enjoying Torment. I have a a long-standing love-hate relationship with the Fallen series-- if you want, feel free to check out my reviews on them, but probably wait until you're done reading them since there are a few spoilers (difficult sometimes not to with a series!)

    Enjoy the rest of Torment (Note: I thought Passion was better ;)

    You can see my TT for this week at the link below!

  14. Very interesting!! I read the first one and wow was he a chauvinist. Since there was a lot of backlash about that, i wonder if the author purposely made a big deal of her standing up to him in the second one. HMMMM maybe i should give the second one a try??

    ReplyDelete
  15. GO LUCE!!! Don't let him tell you what to do:) I'm liking the sound of Luce in this one, she wasn't quite as take-charge in Fallen, so I like that she's making progress!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ha! What a great way of saying f*ck off, you chauvinist pig!

    ReplyDelete

  31. Great teaser and very intriguing cover too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. How are you beautiful? I hope the move went well! Take care!!

  33. Wonder what ticked her off but go Luce!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This reminds me of that bumper sticker regarding women who make history but darn, I cannot think of it now. Basically, defiance, at times, is necessary, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love it too! She really has her dander up!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ah, I have to find out more about this book!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok great quote...but shhh dont tell anyone, I didnt really like this book..:(

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ha! I like it. Sounds like she's up in arms - boys (and men) can be so silly!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That is a fabulous quote. I really should read this series even if it only so I can admire the gorgeous covers in person.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Agreed! I keep hearing such great things about this series...really must partake in it one day. Great tease!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great quote Juju! I definitely remember this one from when I read it, I love that she's not swooning all over an attractive guy when he's telling her something like this. Go Luce!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I swear you are great about picking lines.

  45. Hi Juju,
