Quotes from the After book series

The After book series written by Anna Todd (which originated as fan fiction on Wattpad) has taken the internet by storm, and is just about to be released as a new movie based on the first book this month!

This is a young adult romance series based on a good girl named Tessa who is just about to start college and meets a bad boy unlike any one she has ever met. The book series has some twists and turns that you won’t expect, and at times I loved the characters and at time I hated them… yet I still couldn’t put down the book!

My Book Rating: Rated R. I wouldn’t recommend this book for pre-teens as there is some cursing, sexual content, and the book deals a lot with abuse in certain ways. It will make you fall in love but it will also make you fall in hate. It’s quite the pull of emotions – which depending on your personality can really hook you in.

Ok, now enough talking, right!? There is so many good quotes, and so little time so let’s get to the After series book quotes!

you aren’t reading the right book.”
