Quote Corner #10: Kill the Boy Band

Good morning and happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying your day so far!
Today I am sharing some of my favourite quotes from one of my all-time favourite books, Kill the Boy Band.
Happy reading! 😉

The joy you find as a teen, however frivolous and dumb, is pure and meaningful. It doesn’t matter that it might ferment and taste different when you’re older.

“[He] was a living wonder. He lived and we all wondered how he did it. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. May he juggle with Jesus.”

I am so done. I cannot. I have lost the ability to can.

Did I love them because they were the only boys in my life who consistently told me that I was beautiful? Probably. I loved The Ruperts for who they were, sure, but I mostly loved them for how they made me feel. Which was happy. The Ruperts made me happy. The simplest thing to be in the world. And the hardest.

Maybe it was obsession, but it was also happiness; an escape from the suckiness of everyday life. And when you find something that makes you happy and giddy and excited every day, us fangirls know a truth that everyone else seems to have forgotten: you hold on to that joy tenaciously, for as long as you can..

“I wasn’t just going to leave because Orange unceremoniously kicked me out.”
“No, thank you. I’m not hungry.”

“Happiness isn’t always easy,” he’d said. “But it’s a priority.”

I was holding someone captive and all that was going through my mind was a Billboard Top 40 love song. I was going to hell.

Isabel’s infamous tweets ranged from the cartoonish and impossible:
Im going to pull ur tongue out of ur mouth wrap it around ur neck n strangle u w it so hard ur eyes will pop out. i will pee in the sockets.
To the quaint:
Get ur fcking hands off him bitch i will cut u. #RupertLIsMine
To the cryptically disturbing:
I watch u in your sleep.
I would never condone Isabel’s scary tweets, but you had to give the girl credit for managing to stay under 140 characters every time.

This book is by far the most wild, hilarious and entertaining story that I’ve ever had the absolute pleasure of reading about. It’s very unique and creative and I don’ think I’ve ever before had this much fun reading something. I’ve read this book twice: once as a physical copy and again in the form of an audio-book. I had the time of my life both times and would highly recommend reading this in either format.
If you’re a fan of dark humour, I would HIGHLY recommend giving this book a try. This is also a fantastic story to pic up if you are a fangirl (or fanboy) of anything because you will probably find many elements of the story to be very relatable – I know that I sure did!!
