That's What HE Said Thursday #10

That's What He Said is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies at Chapter Break, where we spotlight a quote from our book crush to the object of his desire. We like to pretend it's us.

What better way to celebrate our book boyfriends?

Earlier this week, my daughters and I watched If I Stay. My younger one had just finished reading the book so we got cozy and watched the DVD I had requested for Christmas. During this, I was reminded of one of my favourite quotes from the books where Adam reassures Mia that he loves HER. Not her clothes or her hair. Her. I think it's a lovely message to any girl, anyone for that matter, about being yourself and wholeheartedly embracing who you are.  So taking a cue from Lynn at Chapter Break, this new year celebrate all that is you!  Happy New Year!  - Bel

Adam seemed to sense that I was upset. He pulled the car off onto a logging road and turned to me.

"Mia, Mia, Mia, " he said, stroking the tendrils of my hair that had escaped from the wig. "This is the you I like. You definitely dressed sexier and are, you know, blond, and that's different. But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I'll be in love with tomorrow. I love that you're fragile and tough, quiet and kick-ass. Hell, you're one of the punkiest girls I know, no matter who you listen to or what you wear."

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
