Stephanie Plum Quotes

In between reading "I Know This Much Is True," I read three more Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. I'm really enjoying the series about the bounty hunter bombshell from Trenton, New Jersey. Rather than writing a recap or my impressions of each book, I thought I would just provide some fun quotes from the books. For more information about the general premise of the series of books, click here and here.

"Three to Get Deadly"

"I make lots of mistakes. I try hard not to make the same mistake more than three or four times."

"Adaptation is one of the great advantages to being born and bred in Jersey. We're simply not bested by bad air or tainted water. We're like that catfish with lungs. Take us out of our environment and we can grow whatever body parts we need to survive. After Jersey the rest of the country's a piece of cake. You want to send someone into a fallout zone? Get him from Jersey. He'll be fine."

"Four to Score"

"You're going to find this hard to believe, but cops aren't required to carry emergency condoms."

"High Five"

"I'm a firm believer in denial. My reasoning is, why deal with unpleasantness today when you could get hit by a bus tomorrow?"

"I had a lot of unease over Ranger's definition of 'broad horizons.' I suspected his horizons were a teensy bit closer to hell then I might want to travel."

"How many times have I told you not to hit people in the face. You kick them in the body where it doesn't show."

I love the quotes! I've read all 16 books and the in between books! I'm looking forward to book 17 and the movie!

I'm slowly getting caught up. It's funny I get the most hits from my Stephanie Plum postings than most others on this blog!
