Quoteable: Sins and Needles by Karina Halle


Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

Would I read this book based solely on the quotes?

Hells to the yes. Those quotes are gorgeous and seemed to be woven into the books very essence. They're beautiful and kind of perfect. 

They both seem like a statement. They aren't questions, so they don't leave a question in my mind that I would definitely read this book based solely on the quotes. 

What do you think? Would you read this book based on the quotes? Do you ever read books based only on the quotes?


  1. Good Lord, those ARE beautiful! And hell yes, I've read books purely because I'v loved certain quotes. I'm a sucker for beautiful writing that makes you feel so YES YES YES. :D

    Also Karina's books are wonderful and a huge fan so I'd definitely recommend her books, Jackie. :)

    1. I've actually read this one and these quotes are pretty perfect for the book's whole persona...don't you agree? And dear god I love words <3
      Happy reading girl!
