Our Top Twenty One Favourite “Quotes” From Every Breath…

Okay, so I lied – we don’t have twenty one favourite quotes. We really only have one. The other 20 below that are quotes (with page numbers) that relate to instances where James Mycroft’s hair and eyes are mentioned. Our top 10 for each, because CURLY HAIR AND BLUE EYES AW YISSS. Also because we’re weird* like that.

‘Live or die. Every breath is a choice.’ – pg 72: this quote is derived from Chuck Palahniuk’s Survivor and where Ellie got her title for this wonderful book from (we think).
